High-pressure tanning bed bulbs are designed to produce UVA light only. In reality, they also produce UVB and the very dangerous UVC light, but filters are used to block these damaging rays. Tanning bulbs should never be operated without the required filter. In addition, they require special care during replacement and disposal. The typical life of tanning bulbs ranges from 300 to 10000 hours.
So how often should you replace your lamps? Most tanning salons replace all of their lamps once a year. If you have a home tanning bed, lamp replacement is more likely to be needed only every three to five years. Of course this will depend on the life of your tanning bulbs and the amount of use it gets.
Bulbs or lamps attached to your tanning bed are the most important part of the bed. These lamps or bulbs produce UV rays and help you to get tan. Tanning beds is the easiest to get that perfect tan indoors without being exposed to the sun.
Most of my clients ask me how often the tanning bulbs should be replaced. So, here in this article, I will share with you some useful tips on how to change tanning bed bulbs and how often they should be changed.
Tanning bulbs increase the production of vitamin D and when your skin is exposed to the UV rays produced by the tanning lamps then, it starts producing melanin faster. This makes your skin darker and you can get that perfect bronzed look easily.
As tanning bulbs are not the same as regular bulbs so, you need to take special care of those bulbs with higher wattage. You should always use bulbs that are specifically meant for your bed. Bulbs with higher wattage need to be replaced soon.
Tanning bulbs contain mercury and some other harmful materials. So, it is always advisable to wear gloves before changing them. To avoid any kind of injury unplugs the tanning bed before removing the old lamps.
Cleaning your tanning bed with chlorine, Windex, or glass cleaners can cause the acrylic to block the UV rays. This will take a longer time to make you tan and you will not achieve that desired result.
After replacing the bulbs you should reduce your tanning session time as the new bulbs will produce more UV rays that can burn your skin. So, if you were going 20 minutes with the old bulbs then, go for 10 minutes after replacing the bulbs.
Change tanning bed bulbs as it is very necessary to get that perfect bronzed look. So, follow the above-mentioned tips and get tan easily without going out in the sun. Enjoy your tanning bed session at home.
Tanning lamps last about 500-800 hours in a salon environment depending on wattage the higher the wattage the shorter the lifespan. This is slightly complicated by source of lamp as the lamps made in Germany tend to last about 15-20% longer than those produced in Hungary. To remain ahead of your clients needs it is important to track total use and then when they get into the range above you would want to keep a much closer eye on them and plan their replacement. Home users can normally go a lot longer as they can simply adjust their use accordingly versus a salon where a client will expect a certain result every time and your business revolves around results.
Once you have determined you need replacement tanning lamps for your tanning bed or tanning booth it is important to plan your order. Shipping can be expensive with lamps and will vary based on your location. Some suppliers will roll the shipping into the lamps price v breaking the price out. This is where a calculator comes in. Similar lamps should be similar costs.

Tanning lamps are available in a wide range of namebrands. Each lamp has its pro's and con's. One tanning lamp may be inexpensive to purchase and one may have a much higher purchase price. Often salons will choose a tanning lamp based on purchase price.
Member pricing will reduce the actual purchase price of the tanning lamp to wholesale tanning lamp levels and often below wholesale. This means that the actual cost for the higher end lamp will be LOWER than its cheaper competitor. This means more cash upfront. But less cash long-term. Salon conditions vary and this may not be possible but can be a long-term goal and we feel is the better path for their business.

To keep their tanning beds in good working order, and to prevent tanning bed burns, tanning salons have to change their light bulbs on a regular basis. Whether you go to a stand-up tanning bed or a lay-down tanning bed, these tanning beds use high UV-ray emitting light bulbs, and that is how you get a tan. The light bulbs in the beds give off both heat and UV rays, and these rays give color to your body similarly to how the sun does.
When tanning salons maintain their machines, they should change all the bulbs in a bed at the same time. This ensures that the bulbs give off the same energy and strength, and it helps customers avoid uneven lines or differently colored patches on their faces and bodies. If a salon changes only one bulb and leaves the rest unchanged, or if they change several while leaving a couple unchanged, it can cause major problems for its customers.
Since tanning beds use bulbs that emit UV rays, a long-term effect of frequently getting a tan with a tanning bed is developing skin cancer. This means lying on a tanning bed is not all that safer than actually lying under the sun. In fact, the CDC reports that as many as 170,000 cases of skin cancer were caused by tanning beds. In recent years, as a way to discourage people from going on tanning beds, the FDA has mandated tanning salons to have conspicuous signs warning people of the health hazards tanning beds pose, such as incurring tanning bed burns. 781b155fdc
