Default Got me a Paint Booth!

Long story short, I did a job for someone and in addition to getting paid, ended up with a really nice 12'w X 18'd X 8't paint booth. FOR FREE!

Now I just have to dismantle it and get it out of there as he has a tenant moving in soon.

I'd like to sell it, as I am not a painter. I'm going to check with some of my local body shops to see if they know anyone who might be interested.

What zip code is the booth in?? Any photos? Blowers and filter cans come with it? Downdraft?

DC area. Will have photos Tuesday. It is not a downdraft but does have blowers/filters and they would certainly come with it. It is the metal panelized type and is really nice, with lights and sliding doors.

Just an FYI to check the lighting. I engineer and sell hazardous location products including lighting. The lighting should be fluorescent only and it should have a label that says approved for Class 1 Division 1 Groups C&D.

I see unapproved lighting in paint booth's all the time and they are simply a fire waiting to happen.

I was just at an auction on the weekend ( a body shop closing down [retirement]}. The shop had three paint booths. The shop’s top booth was a loaded to the nine’s DeVilbiss down draft w/ water flow worth 75k plus installation, so the booth probably set the shop back 100 - 125k. The booth ended up selling for $7,200 and it was ONLY 14 months old! The buyers had to remove it, which involved busting open the tile floor. That booth would probably take 4 guys a week to get it out.

The second best booth was an older Binks booth, probably 25 yrs old w/ Class 1 Division 1 fluorescent lighting, it sold for $1,600. And the last booth didn’t sell at all, but it still had approved lighting.

I was over at the shop earlier this morning picking up some items I purchased, there was two crews dismantling their paint booths. The three man crew dismantling the Binks booth figure 3-4 days with their 3 man crew.

Soooooo, free is a price I like, buuuut, that’s a lot of labour for the "possibility" of selling it some time soon for "probably" break even money.....and then of course you’ll have to store it somewhere ) preferably out of the weather. Would "I" take it for free? Man I’ll tell you the fish hook would be in my mouth tugging, but I’d probably pass on it. I no longer need any lighting fixtures...........how many boxes of filters does the guy have? They should be pretty standard stuff and therefore Very sellable! As far as scrap weight goes, the labour of taking it down will kill you, unless you knock it down using a Bobcat skid steer or something similar. Personally I think you’d make more money having the guy pay you to remove and scrap it.........just my .02 Rob.

* I used to own & operate a body shop back in the late 70's

Crips there’s nothing worse than being predictable.

I measured it today and the interior dimensions are 23'9" deep X 13'10" wide X 9' tall. It is an Eagle Spray Booth. Looks like it could be dismantled fairly easily.

Looking at the pics Rob, I see the exhaust, but where's the fresh air intake? ....you can't have output if you don't have input.

Did you by chance get the owners manual and the installation booklet? If not, then you best devise some sort of accurate, "simple" panel location and orientation method so one knows how it goes back together.
Also keep the fasteners separated in association to application and marked as such. Ultimately you want to be selling a kit, not a basket case.

If you're going to take it, make sure you take as much, if not all of the exhaust duct work, including the roof or exterior wall vents covers. And make sure you take ALL the filters you can get your hands on.

Good luck ....PM me when you get it down and out, I'm interested in hearing how long it took you with how many men.

No chit! Intake is in ceiling and exhaust is at the bottom, on the sides. I have all the manuals too. Got a buyer also and THEY are even going to dismantle and remove. All those pieces you see in the booth are the ducts for the external exhaust/make-up air that went to the roof.
