All the tanning salons equipment can be divided into two main groups: UV-based devices, which use special lights - ultraviolet lights, and UV-free devices. Among all types of tanning salons equipment, a group of ultraviolet-based tanning beds still enjoys great popularity. State-of-the-art tanning beds are equipped with a set of special lights, namely ultraviolet lights (super-efficient, high-output lamps), which shower you with UV light for a fast, dark, and full-body tan.
It's well known that sunlight, after filtering through the earth's atmosphere, contains radiation in several portions of the UV range. Obviously tanning salons beds utilize only those UV light ranges, which improve the skin's appearance without negative side effects. A tanning bed can be of a vertical or a lie-down type. Some owners prefer the vertical type due to its easy cleanup after the session (bench, goggles, wipe and vacuum fans, vents, hoses). Moreover, in a limited space, vertical tanning beds are preferable for a salon owner.
The performance of the tanning beds depends on such factors as the ultraviolet lights output from the lamps, the skin type and the distance between the body and the special lights. One should also keep in mind that, before a tanning session, tanning bed lotion or other tanning bed products have to be applied.
Another group of tanning salons equipment includes tanning spray booths and airbrush systems which apply no ultraviolet lights at all. Your beautiful bronze, fast and easy tan, begins with your visit to the UV-free spray booth. Spray tanning booths provide the latest in safe, unidentifiable from the real thing, tanning. Advanced spray booth systems provide the salon owner and customer with a choice of clear or bronzer solution, offering a number of exclusively designed tans.
Such spray systems are equipped with a set of spray heads for a smooth and even application of the tanning mist. Moreover, some spray booths have built-in multimedia features (such as an MP3 player), which the salon owners can use to provide their customers with music or customized messages. A special Diagnostics LCD endow the salon owners with the ability to monitor and control all the machine parameters on site or
Airbrush tanning is considered to be the newest craze for the indoor tanning industry. Amongst all types of the tanning salons equipment, the airbrush spray system is a real economical alternative. The new airbrush system contains a compressor and auxiliary accessories such as a gallon of DHA solution, a bottle of exfoliator, a bottle of barrier cream and moisturizer.
Also there are home airbrush systems available on sale for a decent price. These home editions are provided with the detailed instructions so that the consumers could learn to apply home airbrush systems on their own. Needless to say that airbrush tanning salons equipment is in favor of people that have an aversion to UV based tanning of any kind.
