I've been researching the best tanning beds to buy for a small salon, and after reading some of these messages, I'm still not sure what to buy. I've been operting a nail and hair salon and I am moving into a new location and plan to add 2 or 3 tanning beds. I do have somewhat of a limited budget but I want good beds. Also, I was told not to buy plastic beds. Which beds are plastic? What would be the best beds to buy if I only start with 2? Same question if I go ahead and buy 3 beds? Thanks for your help.

Plastic beds? Who makes beds made of all plastic?

I don't have an exact amount in my budget. I do have some cash available but financing is also an option.

I don't know what is meant by plastic beds either. Just one manufacturer I talked to said plastic construction beds, get metal construction. Can anyone give me any help on this?

Plastic is often used for end caps and siderails, that's not a big big problem, but watch ones that have plastic tops and undersides.

My car has plastic bumper covers, does that mean it's no good?

I guess the difference in having plastic car bumpers and plastic tanning beds is the HEAT! Listen, I'm just a beginner here and my knowledge about tanning beds is almost zero!

Talk to different distributors. Get different viewpoints. Also, read the threads here. Once you get past the sillyness, there is alot of great information.
