To help reduce overspray, Wagner Spraytech Spray Shelters are ideal.

Small Shelter (2-1/2 ' x 3' x 3-1/4 '.) and medium shelter (4'7” W x 4'7” D x 5'6” H) each have a built-in floor and rear vents to handle air pressure from the spray gun over the front opening to protect recently painted objects.

Large shelter (6' x 9' x 5.5') has no floor, so use of a drop cloth underneath is recommended. Shelter does have a mesh screen, which drops over the front opening to protect freshly painted projects.
