At Jerry’s Collision Center, we strive to be a green company; as such, we are committed to a greener environment and making sure our repair processes and equipment meet the highest standards for health safety and sustainability. Below are a few extra steps Jerry’s takes every day to protect our environment:

  • We use water-borne paints, which reduce solvent fumes providing cleaner air and a healthier work environment. Water-borne paints are also nonflammable, reducing the risk of fire.
  • Our spray booths have insulated walls to keep heat in and use afterburners to quickly ramp up the heat. They have programmed timers that shut off automatically, reducing the use of electricity and heat.
  • To reduce energy usage, we use fast-dry paint products and infrared/UV-B lights to cure paint and shorten the duration of the spray booth bake cycles.
  • Spraying occurs in a downdraft spray booth with HVLP (high volume, low pressure) guns. Use of HVLP spray guns can significantly reduce over spray, which will save paint and also reduce harmful emissions.
  • Our technicians are ASE Refrigerant Recovery and Recycling Certified to comply with industry standards and regulatory requirements for refrigerant recovery and recycling.
  • Excess paint and thinner is always recycled. Residue is washed off with a water-based gun cleaner to eliminate fumes and eliminate solvent-based thinner use.
  • We recycle all cardboard and sheet metal.

Protecting our employees

  • All spray applications (including primer, basecoat and clearcoat) are performed in a spray booth or ventilated and enclosed prep station, which minimizes painters’ and other workers’ exposure to solvents and other harmful components of paints and coatings during applications.
  • All of our painters wear hooded fresh-air paint masks that supply fresh air to the painter.
  • Painters and technicians wear safety glasses at all times to prevent eye injury. All employees are trained to focus on safety procedures on a daily basis to ensure an accident-free workplace.
  • Painters also wear a full body suit to avoid skin absorption of toxins, as well as impermeable gloves to prevent solvents and other skin irritants from coming in contact with their skin.
  • Jerry’s Collision Center uses automated gun cleaners to reduce painters and technicians exposure to harmful cleaning solvents by allowing them to perform part of the cleaning process remotely. Automatic cleaners also reuse solvents in the cleaning process, which will reduce waste.
