Egmont Air Puts on the Gloss

Spray Booth Extraction Case Study

Gloss Boats Marine Spraying Specialists Ltd have selected Egmont Air, the industry-leading dust and fume extraction solutions provider to equip their new painting shed at Tamaki Marine Park.

The new facility is fitted out with a brand-new Egmont Air semi-downdraught, heated spray booth and a high-volume extraction system across the back wall. The booth is attached to a tint-mix room with its own extraction system.

At 10.5m high, Gloss Boats are able to service extra-large vessels without the additional cost and effort of removing radar antennae, satellite domes, aerials etc. The floor of the specialist factory has a five-degree gradient, sloping down to a grated drain connected to the wastewater tank to help maintain a clean, safe working environment.

Mr Dave Lourie, Managing Director of Gloss Boats comments “I choose Egmont Air over two other suppliers based on their experience and the time they spent with me designing and explaining how and what would work best for our requirements. Richard was great to deal with and all the installation crew led by Clint were also great at explaining how the system would work throughout the fit out”

“It has given us the opportunity to build a new facility that is purpose-designed around repainting boats, rather than leasing a shed and then trying to make it compliant. At Tamaki Marine Park GBMS can custom-build a shed that’s fit for purpose.”

“With a project like this there are always unforeseen small problems but the team at Egmont Air always had a solution, and nothing was a problem working alongside other contractors was seamless.  The end result has exceeded my expectations and all the team members that have used the new system love it. They come to work now and can’t wait to paint! The job was completed to a very high standard and to the cost quoted. I would highly recommend Egmont Air and will not hesitate to use them again for our next project!”
