A sandblasting booth is a self-contained space used for high pressure blasting activities. It may range in size from a structure the size of a small closet to a large industrial space designed to hold multiple automobiles or machines. In a sandblasting booth, users spray objects with beads, sand or water at high levels of pressure. This allows the user to perform activities ranging from paint removal to metal polishing in a contained space, with little mess. Some sandblasting booths are designed for users to work inside the booth, while others allow the user to operate sandblasting equipment from outside of the booth.

Depending on the size, a sandblasting booth may feature a variety of different operations. Some allow a user to walk inside and use a portable sandblaster in a contained environment. Others contain built-in blasting equipment that can be operated at the push of a button by users standing outside. Many smaller sandblasting booths include openings where users can reach in to manipulate equipment or objects during blasting. These openings often feature special gloves or other protection to prevent abrasions and other injuries.

Each sandblasting booth features an air intake system, as well as some source of compressed air or gas to power the blasting equipment. A hose and nozzle is used to spray media ranging from sand to water, while a dust collection system within the room collects this media for reuse. The dust collector also picks up paint, dust and other debris that is produced during blasting.

Sandblasting booths can be found in a wide variety of settings. They are used in industrial and manufacturing plants as well as automotive and metalworking shops. Some schools and art facilities also incorporate these booths for students producing sculpture, metalwork or other types of art projects.

These booths are useful for removing paint and dirt from many different types of surfaces, including steel and aluminum. They can be used to add texture to metal or to polish it smooth in preparation for painting. They are commonly used in automotive refinishing, and are useful for polishing and cleaning many different types of objects and materials.

Sandblasting cabinets serve as an alternative to traditional blasting equipment. By keeping dust and media contained within a room or booth, they help to reduce mess and keep cleanup to a minimum. This also preserves air quality compared to open-air sandblasting. A sandblasting booth also allows users to blast large objects quickly, or to blast multiple objects at the same time.
