using this equipment.
Users must comply with all local and national codes of practice and insurance company
requirements governing ventilation, fire precautions, operation and house-keeping of
working areas.

Static electricity can be generated by fluid and/or air passing through hoses, by the
spraying process and by cleaning non-conductive parts with cloths. To prevent ignition
sources from static discharges, earth continuity must be maintained to the spray gun
and other metallic equipment used. It is essential to use conductive air and/or fluid
hoses.
Toxic vapours – When sprayed, certain materials may be poisonous, create irritation or
be otherwise harmful to health. Always read all labels, safety data sheets and follow any
recommendations for the material before spraying. If in doubt, contact your material
supplier.
The use of respiratory protective equipment is recommended at all times. The type of
equipment must be compatible with the material being sprayed.

not be left inside gun-washing machines for prolonged periods of time.
The A-weighted sound level of spray guns may exceed 85 dB (A) depending on the set-
up being used. Details of actual noise levels are available on request. It is
