Over the last couple of years, we have been working closely
with several major lamp manufacturers and lamp patent holders with the goal of creating a
new standard in tanning lamps. This includes Philips, Light Sources, Inc. and
others. The net result is the creation of a new generation of SunMaster tanning
lamps that are beyond anything we have ever done.
Our new ClearTech series of lamps are a revolutionary
design that will change everything in the replacement lamp industry. We have
licensed Sol Glass technology from LSI and have been working with LTI of Hungary to create
a completely new line of lamps that will deliver the largest jump in UV output in tanning
history. These new lamps don't trade UVB for UVA output, and instead use a
completely new patented glass that is much more transperant to ultraviolet. In
short, you get more UV with a standard ClearTech 20 than you will with the hottest RUVA
We have also spent three years designing a new reflector
lamp that will work in tanning beds that traditionally were not able to use RUVA lamps,
including almost every 24 lamp tanning bed made. Our new ReFlex series of lamps was
developed in cooperation with Philips and features a smaller reflector section and a
broader light pattern. While most RUVA lamps have 180 to 210 degrees of reflector,
the ReFlex has 120 degrees, so light can exit the sides of the lamp. Many hours of
testing have gone into the design, to insure no chance of striping or other unwanted side
effects. Our first lamp in this series is the ReFlex Bronzer, which is a 5% Special
RUVA (typically 15 minute exposure). Others will follow.
We have several new lamps to announce as well, including
our Pro Reflector, Power Bronzer and Wildcat 8.5%. 2007 was our busiest year ever
for lamp sales and already 2008 looks to be the biggest year ever for SunMaster. We
will continue to work to develop the most advanced tanning beds and lamps, and we want to
thank all our SunMaster customers over the last two decades that have help us become the
leading maker of replacement tanning lamps. Have a great year!
