Touchscreen Controls

2013-Touch-Screen-Panel_websGarmat Touchscreen controls include all the functions you need to run your operations efficiently. User friendly interface features switches and touchscreen, with self-diagnostics built in. Optional WIFI upgrade allows you to operate and monitor your paint booth from a smartphone, tablet or PC. Data retrieval capabilities also available.

  • Paint Cycles-Spray, Bake, Flash, and Purge
  • User Friendly-Touchscreen and Switches
  • Paint Recipe Function Built in
  • Maintenance and Diagnostic Functions

All Garmat USA products are provided with a listed industrial electrical control panel. All components are recognized, listed or certified by UL, ETL or CSA. All booths come standard with a pre-wired control panel for reduced field installation time and costs.

Garmat controls are built in our very own 508A ETL listed shop so every panel produced is built to the most recent ETL specifications. Employing our own ETL shop allows for infinite possibilities in customizing each shop’s panel, from the simplest functions to a touchscreen complete with any imaginable paint recipe. Garmat certified staff quality controls and tests every piece of equipment that leaves the facility; we are not dependent on standards set by an outside company so we can ensure that the panel meets the quality standards Garmat Equipment is known for.

Paint cycles settings

Spray: Air is heated prior to passing through the cabin ceiling filters.
Flash: Allows for elevated temperatures for the flashing between coats.
Bake: Rapid temperature rise, fully automatic purge and cool-down cycles.

Recycle on Bake

Reduce your fuel costs with recycle on bake. Up to 90% of the heated air is recycled back into the paint booth during the bake cycle, decreasing fuel costs and ultimately saving on overall operating costs.


Garmat HMA/AMU’s are purposely designed to be efficient while still providing a superior painting environment.

All Garmat HMA/AMU’s are designed in house. By designing and manufacturing our own mechanical systems we can ensure that your HMA/AMU is built to the exact specifications your paint booth requires. From cost efficient to high end, Garmat can design AMU/HMAs to fit any budget. Each Standard Garmat HMA/AMU is listed (42106, 46008, 99223, 9937, 1275) and built to ANSI Z83.25 standards for Direct Gas Fired Process A heaters. The Industrial Process Certifications is critical as it applies to the specific standards and safety measures required for direct fired burner used in the refinishing industry. Garmat USA HMA/AMUs were the first in the market to carry this listing.

Direct Fired Burner

Paint shops rely on their booth for consistent temperature and fast, controlled bake cycles. Garmat USA offers quality performance in a 98% efficient direct-fired burner. The direct fired burner is the most efficient method of heating air for a paint booth as the airflow pattern is closely controlled using profile plates resulting in 98% efficient combustion.

new-burner 2

  • Save on installation as the burner does not require vents, set up includes simply setting the gas pressure
  • 30:1 turndown provides a more precise temperature control while optimizing energy usage
  • Direct Fired Burners do not have heat exchangers, nor supply blowers, this further reduces energy consumption, and also simplifies maintenance
  • The stainless steel/aluminum construction ensures a long and corrosion resistant life



Dual Inlet Reverse Incline Fan with Airfoil Blades

Different fan designs have a major impact on stability and consistency of air flow. That is why Garmat uses only Airfoil Dual Inlet Reverse Incline on their standard line of automotive spray booths.
The backward direction of the blades creates a vacuum of air surrounding the fan which prevents overspray buildup. These types of fans are capable of operating in a broader range of static pressure area so the airflow remains consistent. Since these fans run at a lower RPM both noise and energy costs are reduced.Untitled

  • High resistance to static pressure
  • Increased energy efficiency
  • Quiet operation
  • Belt driven with variable sheave, weight of fan is supported by two heavy duty bearings on the fan frame and not on the motor

Shadow Free by Design

Lighting quality and placement is critical for color matching. Garmat USA booths feature horizontally oriented light fixtures equipped with color corrected fluorescent tubes. The horizontal design allows for continuous lighting above and below the belt line, unlike vertical oriented fixtures, which not only create uneven lighting patterns but are also easily blocked by the painter.Lights

  • Horizontally placed for virtually shadow free environment
  • Interior accessible for easier serviceability
  • Provide accurate color matching with 5000K color-corrected fluorescent tubes
  • Money saving energy efficient T-8 fixtures
  • Constructed with high efficiency electronic ballasts
  • Sealed fixtures fitted with tempered glass for optimal safety
  • ETL and ETL-C listed, classified for use in paint booth area

    • 8-tube light fixtures
    • LED light fixtures
    • Reflectors for increased luminosity (available in all lighting configurations) Add-A-Lite for retrofitting existing booths


Ceiling FIlter Change OutOne of the primary considerations when evaluating a paint booth is the filtration system. Having an exemplary filtration system will not only provide a better atmosphere for painting, but will also provide a safe surrounding for paint tech, staff and local community. Garmat USA’s filtration is designed to achieve both these goals and ensure the cleanest possible painting environment in the industry. Not only do our filters achieve 99% capture efficiency, but they also maintain that efficiency at the airflow required for a high quality paint job. All Garmat USA automotive paint booths feature easy access filtration systems which simplifies the maintenance required to maintain optimal performance. Easily accessible and serviceable by one person saves labor costs. Steel knife edge closures on the ceiling filters provides a tight and secure fit.
