How To Guides

A technical bulletin is a document that describes how to field maintain a system on a tanning bed. These are created when a certain feature is missing and must be shipped seperately, when the OEM part isn't available and a replacement must be used, or simply when regular maintenance requires a little more instruction than the owners manual contains. This data is kept online to support our commercial and residential customers.
