Frequently Asked Questions


We have many customers ask us this question and, indeed, have visited customers only to see that they have managed to fit their Procart filters back to front. So, this is not a stupid question and you are not alone in being unsure which is the front and which is the back of these concertina filters.

Our standard white, Procart and Procart I filter is fitted with the flatter side facing into your spray booth therefore the deeper folded 'V' section is the back of the filter. The diagram below shows this for you and it also demonstrates how the Procart filter works and how it holds onto the overspray or dust that you produce. The overspray enters the filter through the hole on the front and is drawn into the deep 'V' section. As the air circulates within this area the paint is absorbed by the cardboard and held whilst the air exits the filter via the offset hole on side of the 'V'.

If you have a Procart H, Procart HS or a Procart M2 that are constructed with a fibre layer, then this media should be installed facing the back as it is designed to act as a secondary level of filtration.

With all our fibreglass filtration products there is a back and a front. It may not always be obvious, but it is important that the product is fitted correctly so that you are getting the most efficient and effective filtration.

Our PROFIBRE rolls are coloured green and white and it is the green side that faces into the spray booth therefore it is this face that the overspray hits. If you are using our specialist PROPORA filter, then it is the purple side that faces into the spray area.

Both these filters are ‘progressively built’ which means that the fibres are closer together the deeper into the filter you go. So, the fibres are closer together at the back of the filter than they are at the front. This is so that the larger overspray particles are held on the front of the filter whilst the smaller particles are held towards the back. If the filter is fitted, back to front, then it will block very quickly.

Our standard delivery rate is £10.00 per order. This covers the packaging, paperwork and the actual delivery to your chosen delivery address. This charge is for England, Wales and Scotland with an additional charge for some Highland and Central London locations as well and Northern Ireland and islands.

Your delivery charge will be confirmed during the check-out process and BEFORE you are asked to pay for anything. If you would like a confirmed delivery charge before you order, then please just call or contact us via our CONTACT US page.

It is very important to inspect your delivery before accepting it from the courier. If it is damaged or parts are missing, then you can refuse the delivery.

If this is not possible at the time, then any damage must be reported to us within 5 days so that we can investigate and arrange a replacement and we may ask for photos to help with any potential claim we may have to make.

The most important thing for us is that you have the goods you ordered and, in the condition, that you expect.
