What kind of set up is everyone using in addition to respirators?
You will have to, consensus is that the organic filters won't remove the harmful part of 2k. That's why the filtration systems for volume use of 2k are pretty complicated and automotive users use air fed masks. I'm sure in the UK there are special regulations on professional spray booths that I have read about.

Mind and not vent into your neighbours garden, unless you don't like them!!!
