Spray Booth Electrical Requirements

Spray Booth Electrical Requirements

Spray Booth Electrical Requirements


I've been told that you can install electric so far from the side of a finish spray booth where the opening is only 2' wide by 8' tall and so far from the open front of the finish spray booth but I cannot find the exact requirements in order to establish validity. Any one know if this is true or not and what OSHA standards explain this?

RE: Spray Booth Electrical Requirements

If OSHA applies, you're probably under the NEC and that will provide all of the spacing criteria.

RE: Spray Booth Electrical Requirements

NOT NEC but it shows how to apply the clearances you will find in the NEC.

Check out article 516, 2014 National Electrical Code.
