Airflow Design Considerations for Large Aircraft Spray Booths

Planes that roll off an aerospace manufacturer’s assembly lanes are subject to a bevy of requirements, from FAA certifications to customer paint specifications. Meeting each requirement often requires specialized equipment and knowledge – painting the aircraft is no different.

The final finish on an aircraft should not only dazzle the customer that paid a great deal for the plane, but also fulfill quality requirements and thermal needs. You can get more information about airplane paint booth via

We understand that the aerospace industry is highly regulated and demands high quality from its equipment suppliers. With this in mind, we worked closely with an aerospace manufacturer to design spray booths with an airflow design that meets coating quality requirements, ensures safety, meets legal requirements and minimizes operating costs.

To achieve a certain coating quality, we work closely with aerospace manufacturers and recommend one of three types of airflow construction: low pressure chambers, semi-descent chambers and spray booths. The low-pressure cab allows air to move from the ceiling to the floor, which usually provides the highest quality coating. However, it also has the highest installation and operating costs.

The semi-trigger cab is an alternative to straight-line traction as it supplies air entering from the ceiling in front of the cab and then rotating horizontally to the outlet end on the opposite side of the cab.

This airflow design is a small compromise to a straight line airflow design, but offers some of the benefits of floorless airflow. Without holes, these constructions require less integration into the building and are usually cheaper to operate.
