Designated Spray Painting Areas can be permanent or temporary areas that provide a compliant, appropriately ventilated and zoned space to paint objects which are typically oversized or unique in a way that spray painting could not be conducted within a conventional Spray Booth Cabin.
There are very specific regulations and zoning requirements that form part of this acceptable practice; in all cases design should be justified and built for purpose. Examples are typically where clients require offsite painting, remote painting or when large overhead cranes are required bring in the oversized or irregular items. In some cases temporary structures are used for overflow painting or as an interim solution while the new painting facility is constructed.
How do we design areas?
Designated Spray Painting Area Regulations are more comprehensive that only the AS/NZS.4114.1:2003 Spray Booth Standards. They require electrical hazardous zone compliance and delineation of areas to ensure that no sources of ignition are within the zone without protection. All spray areas and temporary booths must be designed under expert guidance.
