Step-By-Step Process for Using the Vented Room

  • Set fan and timer
  • Sign in with QR code
  • Setup paper
  • Wear PPE
  • Put away all holding stands and materials after the final coat
  • Absolutely no paint or finishing materials left out, ever
  • Remove workpiece as soon as dry
  • Items left more than 12 hours will be removed


Rules for the Vented Room

  • All hazardous chemicals, including spray paint, stains, and other approved items must be stored in the yellow hazardous chemical storage cabinet located in the vented room
  • Review the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) information of unknown products before use
  • SDS information is available via the QR code on the hazardous chemical storage cabinet
  • Do not bring dangerous chemicals to the makerspace
  • Must be continuously ventilated during occupied hours
  • Take frequent fresh air breaks while painting
  • Leave painted areas if you experience eye watering, headaches, dizziness, or breathing problems
  • Turn on the timer and leave the door closed while in use
  • When done, leave timer on to continue ventilating the room properly
  • Use the correct P.P.E (Personal Protective Equipment) when you’re painting. Items such as a spray painting mask, and gloves are vital
  • Before you start to use your spray cans, make sure that you store them away from heat and fire. The aerosols are highly combustible, and will cause a lot of damage and potentially a lot of harm.
  • Clean your entire area after your job is complete; including, but not limited to, tables, walls, floors, cabinets, all materials put away
  • Do not leave anything out long term
