When is a fold up spray booth not regulated by Article 516? I've got a client who has a portion of his home garage, that includes a window, that he uses on occasion to apply waterborne finishes. He unrolls 6 mil plastic from the ceiling, and puts a box fan in the window. The end opposite the window is open to the rest of the garage.

He says he only uses waterborne finishes.

Some jobs sure can cause troubles! Doesn't SEEM to be a risk (considering the lack of "dangerous quantities of flammable vapors, combustible mists, residues, dusts, or deposits"(516.3))...now. BUT later on, when the customer tries some more flammable mixtures, you lose it all when the house blows up! If you wire it unclassified, and the customer sells the house with the spray booth set-up, the new owner might not be aware of the useage restrictions.
Know any lawyers?
