Truck & Equipment Spray Paint Booths – Front Air Flow

Marathon’s Truck & Equipment Front Air Flow Spray Paint Booths are designed to be an affordable finishing solution when starting up a new business, without sacrificing quality. The Front Air Flow is a great all around spray booth for spraying anything from vehicles to large equipment, and a very popular model. This large equipment paint booth type can NOT have a heating unit added.

The Front Air Flow Spray Paint Booths are the simplest booths we make, and is one of our most popular styles. The air enters through the front doors, which have filters built into them, and travels horizontally through the booth.

The air exits the booth through the rear exhaust filter plenum, and finally out the back of the booth. This basic design is very popular for it’s simplicity, versatility and economy. If you are considering this design, you must keep in mind that this design cannot have a Spray & Cure heater added as an option. This model of truck & large equipment paint booth can be any size you need, and is very easy to maintain.

The Front Air Flow (FAF) Series Spray Booth
This booth is designed so that the air enters through the intake filters in the front doors, and surrounds the product with clean fresh air. The air moves horizontally through the booth and is filtered by the rear center exhaust plenum. Over spray from the painting process is then captured in these exhaust filters.

Marathon Finishing Systems offers a full line of paint booths. Marathon designs and manufactures our entire line of spray booths to meet today’s demanding paint technology. Whether you are spraying solvent-based product (paint), waterborne product only, or a combination of solvent and water borne product, we have the right solution for your application. Our team will help you choose the right spray booth package for your application and facility. We can also custom design a specialized system, based on your specific requirements. In fact, most of the systems built and installed by Marathon Finishing Systems are custom engineered for our customers.

If you are looking for a booth specifically engineered for the task of cars, small or medium sized trucks, motorcycles or ATV’s Marathon Finishing Systems will design, manufacture, deliver, install, and then train your staff to properly operate and maintain the complete system. Or if you choose, you can also install the booth yourself with our installation instructions.

Why choose a Marathon large equipment paint booth over our competition’s?

Here are just a few reasons why:

1. Our spray booths comply with all national (NFPA 33) environmental, fire, and safety codes.

2. Marathon’s spray booths are “Waterborne” ready or always upgradable.

3. Our booths are all Nut & Bolt type construction. No zip (sheet metal) screws!

4. It’s all about the lights! We deisgn our all of our booths with horizontal lighting fixtures (where possible), to help eliminate shadows.

5. We use only “Inspection Grade” LDPI, Inc. brand light fixtures made in the U.S.A. for spray booth applications.

6. Our Spray & Cure heat systems are manufactured in the U.S.A. Energy Efficient and “LISTED” for compliance.

7. All of Marathons products are manufactured with “Top Brand Name” components, made in the U.S.A.


Marathon sets the Benchmark every year with new product releases and smart booth designs, all for an honest price! This is what you can expect from Marathon Finishing Systems.

Outside air enters through filters mounted in the front doors, and then travels through the work area. This type of design does not allow for the addition of an Air Make Up unit (AMU), so heating (or cooling) are not an option. The air travels horizontally (crossflow) through the booth.

Once the air has traveled the length of the booth, the overspray and particulates are removed by the exhaust filters before exiting the booth. Marathon uses standard size intake and exhaust filter media, readily available from most paint and refinishing suppliers. If you are interested in modifying the booth air (heating and/or cooling), we recommend that you consider an RAF (reverse air flow) booth. The RAF design has both an intake and exhaust plenum for modified air to mix properly. Marathon can design a solution for virtually any process and environment combination you can encounter. While we have many standard models, most of the booths that Marathon builds and installs are custom solutions.
