Paint Mixing Rooms and Paint Kitchens

From small businesses to large paint companies and chemical manufacturers, paint mixing rooms have become an essential part of the industrial process. While not taking up too much room in a shop, they provide a controlled, safe environment for the production of a variety of finishing products and solutions.

Paint Mixing Kitchen

Typically smaller than most spray paint booths, a paint kitchen is designed for installation within a larger facility. Filtered air is introduced through an intake plenum (either non-pressurized or pressurized) and is blown down directly over the mixing area. This channels vapors and exhaust air away from the work area (and those working there) and into a low-mounted exhaust port where the air is filtered and released back into the environment.

Compliant with the National Fire Protection Agency guidelines (NFPA 33) and requirements established by the Occupational Health and Safety Association (OSHA CFR 29.1910.107), these structures allow for the mixing of chemicals and paints in a variety of work spaces by eliminating harmful fumes that result from the mixing process.

On top of controlling toxic fumes, a paint mixing booth is also highly effective for controlling spill prevention, greatly improving containment within chemical companies and similar industrial applications (more on that in a minute).

While most models comply with NFPA and OSHA regulations, there may be additional laws that affect your business locally. Before installation, make sure you're in compliance with all local statutes.

Standard features and optional upgrades

Most booths intended for industrial paint mixing equipment will be constructed from 18-gauge galvanized steel. Provided as a "do-it-yourself" kit, they're engineered pre-punched with accompanying flanges, making them easy to build through a straightforward nut-and-bolt assembly.

Two of the most important features related to safety and productivity are:
