Spray booth exhaust filtration systems
If your pew refurbishing company does not have a spray booth with filters you are doing a terrible dis- service to our environment our spray booths are “permitted” and have double staged filters throughout.
We “recycle” and are “green” aware!
Ask all bidders to show you permits and photos of spray booths and filters. This earth is a gift – it deserves our respect.
