If you have a retractable spray booth, you can move it to the object that you need to paint and expand your booth over it. You simply bring your paint booth to the object instead of bringing the object to the paint booth. Retractable booths are mounted on wheels and are easy to roll to wherever the object is that you need to paint.
On the other hand, with a fixed enclosure, you need to bring your object to your spray booth. If your object is very large or oddly shaped, this could be a challenging task. In addition, if you don’t have a clear path, then you may also have to move other awkward and cumbersome objects out of the way in order to get to your spray booth.
A fixed industrial paint booth is built in one location and it will stay there. Once it is up, you can only use that space for painting. If space is tight in your facility, then having a dedicated space just for painting may not be the most effective use of your space, especially if you only need to paint things from time to time.
If you purchase a collapsible paint booth, then you don’t need a dedicated space just for painting. You can use and reuse the same workspace. For example, when you need to paint something, you simply pull your booth over the project. When you are done, you remove the booth, fold it up and you can use that space for another task.
If you are using a collapsible paint booth, you can use whatever type of material handling equipment is easiest to load and unload your work area: overhead cranes, forklifts, etc.
Once it is in place, you simply roll your paint booth over it.
With a fixed booth you first need to lift it with an overhead crane or forklift onto a rolling cradle and then maneuver it through one end of the fixed structure.
The process is more difficult and time-consuming as you are trying to move a large structure through a relatively small opening.
The image to the right shows an overhead crane moving an object to a fixed booth for painting.
A fixed paint booth is a permanent structure that needs to stay where it is.
A retractable spray booth, on the other hand, can be stored in a different location, it doesn’t need to stay in one location. When you are not using it, you simply fold it up and roll it out of the way.
Whenever you have to move a heavy or bulky object, it could get damaged. If your paint booth is a fixed structure, then you run the risk of damaging your newly finished paint job when you have to move your object back to its final location. This means that you will need to do some touch-ups.
If you have a collapsible paint booth, though, you won’t have to fix up any paint that might get damaged because your project doesn’t need to be moved anywhere. Eliminating the need for additional touch-ups will make the painting process faster and will help to ensure a better, more professional finished look.
Investing in a collapsible spray booth could save you quite a bit on labour costs because of the reduced time and effort required in handling the objects that you need to paint.
For example, if you need to paint a large metal storage tank that is located somewhere in your facility and you have a fixed paint booth, then you need to move that tank to the booth where it will be painted. You will have to take the following steps in order to move it to the paint booth and then reverse the steps to put it back:
The above process can take a minimum of 3 hours to complete and you will need several people to accomplish the task. Think of how much you need to spend in wages in order to complete this task every time you have to paint an object and then think about how much you will save in wages if you had a collapsible spray booth that you simply expand over your object.
