1.8 Fire Protection


Fire protection is an important element of the aircraft paint booth. The value of the object being painted far exceeds any object painted in similar paint booths, even Mercedes cars. The act that is being performed in the paint booth (painting) is by its nature a dangerous thing. It is wise to spend money to protect that investment.

Fire protection supplies a few challenges to the downdraft booth designer. The floor trenches must be designed to handle a large amount of water during a fire. The addition of drains and sewerage system is very important. Crossdraft booths do not have that problem as the water just drains out under the door.
