High pressure beds are beds that utilize,1,000 to 2,000 watt high pressure lamps.These units usually only have lamps on the top of the unit , and a pad on the bottom, which means a customer has to flip over during a session.These lamps produce mostly UVA output,some units are now being made to allow small amounts of UVB thru.These machines usually have a longer exposuretime because of the UVA output.They are usually more expensive to purchase and to operate the unit.The cost per session is usually alot higher to the customer as well.The amount of times a client tans in these units is greatly reduced to compared to conventional low pressure units.The electric needed for these units is usually in the 100 amp three phase range.The maintanance of these machines is entirely different than low pressure units.The High pressure lamps need to be changed more often, and, the blue(or clear) filter glasses need to be kept clean.These high pressure lamps are more expensive to replace than conventional low pressure lamps.These units provide a much more deeper penetrating UVA ray which goes deeper into the clients skin, therefore it takes more time for the color to completely come out.That means customers do not need to tan as often.There are people that do not recomend high pressure tanning, and there are people who have found the machines to be an intrical part of their salon set up.I have found that most salons do not open with high pressure but, once they find that there customers may be looking for additonal types of equipment High pressure is a good option.Because of the cost involved with installing and operating high pressure equipment I would suggest that salon owners seriosly investigate their area, talk to their clients,make sure they have the electrical and space available(they are usually much larger than conventional units.)I hope this helps!

So where does "High Pressure" and "low pressure" come from? What do these words refer to?
