Spray booths must be tested regularly to ensure that paint overspray is filtered efficiently and remaining isocyantes vented to the atmosphere are filtered sufficiently to ensure there is not detrimental threat to health. Gas burners should be tested annually to meet Gas Safe regulations.
Spray booth testing is also required to determine how long it takes for the isocyanate paint materials to clear from the area, known as a Mist Clearance or Smoke Clearance Test. After testing an AGM spray booth engineer will place a notice at the vehicle and personnel exit doors as a warning to anyone that may want to enter without respiratory equipment, how long it takes for the materials to clear, and is safe to enter.
Spray Booth Testing Checks Air Quality
The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) legislation requires that Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) is tested at a maximum of 3 month intervals to ensure it is functioning correctly, testing levels of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, oil mist and water vapour within the spray booth and not exposing the user to any hazardous emissions.
At AGM Services we conduct air quality spray booth testing using calibrated Factair Anemometor equipment to provide accurate readings. Certification is provided to BS Standard BS EN21021 and aftercare is also available from our Technical Department should there be any issues with the breathing air quality.
