In this room you’ll find the Aurora sunquest. The Aurora sunquest is a low pressure bulb only machine. It is equipped with an 18 inch extractor fan that takes the air out of the room to the ceiling space above. This makes this room a little cooler than room one.
- Grills instead of acrylic lamp covers
- Start/stop buttons
- Use in any tanning programme to minimise lines from lie-down beds
Room two is also equipped with a floor fan for post-tan cooling. As with all the rooms, room two has a tissue roll dispenser, two cans of deodorant (one women’s/one man’s), baby wipes, tanning goggles and a bin.
The Aurora sunquest is a good option for anyone new to indoor tanning as the low pressure bulbs emit higher concentrations of UVB light in comparison to high pressure bulbs (as found in facial tanners). This frequency of light is responsible for not only vitamin D production but also for the stimulation of Melanin synthesis. Melanin is the chemical produced by the skin which forms a barrier to protect the human body against the harmful effects of UV radiation and as the melanin darkens its protective properties increase. At the beginning of a tanning programme, the key is short sessions using low pressure bulbs. Stand-up machines are recommended as they have no clear acrylic which also filters UVB light.
