The 15min version has different filter glass and 400w SE lamps vs 400w R7's lamps in the bench.

Re: Best used High Pressure Bed

Thank you for the information. Do you know if there is a way to "convert" a 20 minute Sunboard model to a 15 minute? There is a 20 minute model that is very well priced but my customers do NOT like tanning for 20 minutes, too long for them! Lol.

Thank you!

The reason the 20 min Sunboard is a good price is --- MOST salon owners haven't preferred that unit (member House of Tan here however does!). The XTT version - 15 minutes - is a lot more as a result.

That said - HP isn't like a base bed where you are coming all the time and the 20 minutes would be as big an issue. Most customers would only be using that unit once every week or a few times/month.

That said - when you calculate the ROI of a new bed for your salon, tan time IS something to consider. For HP - that you hope to have running a LOT of the time --- in a 10 hour day for the salon to be open, a 20 min vs 15 min tan time adds up to several "lost" opportunities to sell and service customers in a given day. If you are a higher volume salon in particular - this can represent a lot of lost revenue opportunity!

Re: Best used High Pressure Bed

Ann(Sunsally) is right on.

If all you could afford for an HP is a well priced-pre owned 20 min Sunboard, I'd jump on it, especially if it is your only avenue at this time to enter the HP game. Sell it to your customers, that 20minutes a month, or bi-monthly is less time spent on 2-4 15minute sessions, offering better results, less tan time despite the 20m tag

Re: Best used High Pressure Bed

A lot of customers don't end up staying for the full session anyway. If results are good at 15 mins. Sell it that way.
