On Tuesday, April 26, 2011, skid loaders were working in the basement of the shop where the businesses showroom and office were located in order to fill it in to make room for the new spray booth.

An article in the Oelwein Daily Register website had a news report on the shop’s remodeling job:

“We’re putting in a new system that’s going to be a state-of-the-art paint room. The closest thing to it now is only in Waterloo and Cedar Rapids,” Winters pointed out.

They will be putting in a new downdraft spray booth. Down draft paint booths use the most up to date and modern technology to get the best results. The theory is that, unlike crossflow booths where air has to travel the length of the booth to be vented, air travels a much shorter distance in a downdraft booth (from top to bottom).

Downdraft booths tend to be a little more expensive than the older crossdraft booth designs, but can be well worth the extra expense because it can lead to increased efficiency and greater profits for the shop.
