Abstract Disadvantages and limitations of folding canvas painting booths, the use of which is becoming more widespread on account of their low cost and convenient use. However, these booths do not seem to comply with the requirements of the decree of 23 Aug. 1947 respecting the protection of spray painters and varnishers. The article describes various booths and gives the results of smoke tests carried out on a 15 x 6m booth. The findings cover: ventilation; maintenance of canvas walls, lighting, heating, fireproofing and means of egress.
