However, painting processes that require a booth are likely to exceed this minimum threshold. As booth design experts, we are constantly balancing the manufacturer’s finishing needs and regulatory demands. The number of pounds of VOCs emitted can be calculated from the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) of the paint, which lists the amount of emissions per gallon used. personnel inside of the spray booth, room, or area. Aside from these minimum requirements for paint booths, there are some essential safety practices to make sure your booth is maintained properly: Restrict access for anyone with asthma, allergies, and respiratory illnesses. 0000000913 00000 n It’s like when you’re in school and it’s always rules, rules, rules. 0000001946 00000 n 0000016863 00000 n This one requirement determines much of the spray paint booth’s design characteristics—even the amount of illumination is specified so that the lighting fixtures do not present a hazard. Although these standards may seem cumbersome, they are crucial to the design of a safe and successful spray paint booth. (CFC 1504.7.3) The ventilation design provides a minimum airflow velocity of 100 linear feet/minute (FPM) measured using the cross-sectional area of the spray booth. 0000013525 00000 n To keep personnel safe and environmental damage minimized, modifications to the building are sometimes necessary.

Most of these exempted items are free standing additions (i.e. 0000030836 00000 n Regulations differ from state to state, so make sure to check your area’s regulations with local authorities. Fire safety design requirements impact electrical connections, ventilation requirements and fire protection systems, such as sprinklers. 0000026994 00000 n Spraying booths or rooms are designed to confine and limit the escape of spray, volatile vapors, mist or combustible residue, dust, odors, and exhaust. 0000001157 00000 n 110 0 obj <> endobj For example, Santa Cruz County lists which, The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), contact the spray booth experts at Spray Systems. The VOCs present in paint has necessitated heavy regulation because fire danger and environmental damage must be minimized at the design level. However, there are additional federal requirements regarding spray paint booth operators. Installing a spray paint booth on a factory floor requires compliance with regulatory and design requirements. 0000001329 00000 n Wet sprinkler lines, electrical connections and exhaust ducting are common areas for which modifications to the building may be required. H�\��j�0��z Many are covered under OSHA 1910.107—a standard that impacts the airflow, emergency egress, paint storage, filter maintenance and much more. endstream endobj 119 0 obj <>stream 3 Every day checks include: ensuring the booth pressure is negative to the pressure outside the booth, check for signs of damage to the booth and its door seals.

The welded construction of transmission pipelines shall be conducted in accordance with the Standard for Welding Pipe Lines and Related Facilities, API Std. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires an average airflow of 100 linear feet per minute. A suitable standard for maintaining and testing is AS/NZS 4114.2: 2003 Spray painting booths, designated spray painting areas and paint mix rooms - Part 2: Installation and maintenance.
