What should I look for when choosing a weld booth?

There are several considerations when choosing a welding booth for your operations. 

  • Fume extraction: One of the most important considerations when choosing a welding booth or table is the fume extraction method. All manual welding requires some form of fume extraction. This can be built into the weld booth or table (e.g., via a backdraft plenum or fume arm connected to an integrated filter chamber). Alternatively, a simple welding booth or table can be used with another form of weld fume extraction, such as a backdraft plenum or fume arm hooked up to a centralized dust collector or individual collector. 
  • Booth size and design: Welding booths come in different sizes and designs. Make sure the welding surface is made of durable materials (such as heavy-duty steel) and large enough to accommodate the largest size part your welders will work on. 
  • Portability: Need a portable welding booth? For added flexibility, consider booths that are easy to move or reposition.
  • Added features: Some welding booths come with added features, such as built-in lighting, storage space and power for the welder, spark control, or curtains. Consider which features are important to you and your welders.
