The air enter the booth from the ceiling through intake filters and then flow downward. Most common are pit style booths that utilize an excavated pit and tunnel system to draw air from the centre portion of the booth floor. Also quite common are raised floor or “basement” style booths that draw air through grating in the booth floor.
