How to spray a really tall vertical board
« on: February 05, 2017, 09:33 PM »
Hi, experts,

Can you please suggest a way to handle evenly spray a tall vertical board about 7-8 ft and a big raised panel door really close to ceiling? It is very hard to reach on a ladder and spray them in one pass. Any suggestions? Thank you so much

How tall are you?

I can easily reach 8' using an aluminum bench.

I am not tall at all  ;) It will be hard to go up and down to floor in one pass and keep same distance on a ladder. Not sure any alternative can break the spray into steps without showing.

Spray horizontally not vertically.

Strat at the top, work your way down.

For the door take it off and spray it flat.

Again, drywall bench, spray horizontally not vertically. If you're worried about a hesitation as you step off the bench have someone there to move it out go the way. Me, I'd just push it with my leg as I stepped off.

It is about 4 inches wide. I was thinking doing horizontal pattern in one straight line shoot without overlapping and less overspray. Another one of this is next to wall. Tom, should I spray with same way as you suggested? Thanks!

For the board along the ceiling vertical fan set to about 6" wide. Set up some type of walk board, you should be able to go from edge to edge.

For the vertical board next to the wall turn the fan to horizontal, should be able to spray from top to bottom in one pass.

The door that has been mentioned, spray with a vertical fan, horizontal pattern.
