German term or phrase: Pistolen-(doppelkabinen)
The lack of hits on google and my inability to conceive of what the literal translation "pistol double cabin" in the context of Absaughauben has dissatisfied me. Is there any other possiblility here or could you explain how I am supposed to understand this?

At one point the word appears in the following sentence: 2 Pistolen-Doppelkabinen mit im unteren Bereich herausziehbaren Tropfenwannen.

There are also plain Pistolenkabinen in my text and ordering 14 units is possible, if that is somehow relevant.

Explanation:
This is my guess, if your context is spray painting.

The word 'Pistolen' is widely used for spray guns.

agree  David Moore: I rather imagine a spray-booth would also be equipped with an extractor hood, so this looks good to me....
