Finishing Prep StationFinishing Prep Stations

Col-Met offers a flexible and controlled environment with their finishing prep stations designed for automotive work. For prepping and painting vehicles, the EZ Limited Finishing Prep Station optimizes space and efficiency while providing a clean, safe and effective work environment. Our prep station uses a pressurization fan to bring in fresh air from upper levels into the prep station. The air is filtered through an exhaust plenum located at the back of the workstation and ultimately expelled outside through an exhaust fan. This design allows for easy addition of a heated air makeup unit.

  • Prep Station Airflow

    Our prep stations draw fresh air from the cleaner upper levels of the shop through a pressurized fan. The air is forced down in the prep station through a filter bank located in the ceiling near the entry. Keeping your shop clean, the air is drawn through the prep station work area into a filtered exhaust plenum at the opposite end and exhausted out to the atmosphere through the exhaust fan and stack.
