Hurricane Equipment were recently asked to customise a spray booth of enormous magnitude for the Rea Vaya bus depot in Selby, Johannesburg. This company are always up to the challenge and happily went about designing, sourcing and installing this 24-metre-long spray booth to suit their client’s bespoke needs.

The spray booth is not only extremely long – it is also 5.6 metres high and 8.350 metres wide. It boasts six inlet motors at 7.5kW each, plus three outlet motors of 11kW each. There are three burners which run at two amps and the whole booth has LED lighting throughout.


It is so large that Hurricane Equipment had to install a 3 Axis Movement platform inside to lift the spray painters to the heights that they need to while spraying large bus bodies. The end result is quite spectacular, and Rea Vaya are very happy with their latest installation.
