Modern Tanning Sunbeds vs Old Fashioned Hot Sunbeds

Even in this modern age of electronic technology there are some customers that are still under the misconception that heat is good for the tanning process.

Heat is an unwanted and costly waste product that was produced in abundance when old magnetic ballasts were used to power the sunbed tubes. For many years sunbed manufacturers have spent a great deal of time and energy installing cooling fans and air conditioning systems designed to remove the heat from a sunbed.

Some long-standing customers still wrongly believe that the hotter the sunbed, the better it will tan / make them go red and eventually tan the skin. The reality is that excessive heat generated has an adverse effect on the efficiency and tanning power of a sunbed, and the reddening of the skin is mainly due to the blood rising to the surface to try and cool the body. The skin will go red when we get too close to any heat source like an electric fire, but we don’t get a tan as a result.

The new Electronic technology, used modern domestic and commercial sunbeds, enables optimized tanning performance within the 0.3 safe tanning regulations. As this is more energy efficient, it enables the sunbeds to run cooler with an optimal temperature of around 26 degrees C which increases the overall electrical efficiency.  Modern sunbeds are much cheaper to operate due to the lower power consumption and less components required. The new highly efficient – low energy technology is similar to the new LED lighting used in homes, they run on less power which means less heat is omitted, but they are able to increase the output of light, or in the sunbeds case, UV tanning rays. 

Many experienced sunbed customers who have embraced this modern technology have welcomed this advance in sunbeds technology and they appreciate the new warm tanning experience and are pleased that you no longer need to sweat to get at tan. More and more tanning customers are very happy with the 0.3 safety regulations and the tanning results that these new tubes are capable of, when used in a modern electronic sunbed.
