User’s Manual

Opal Fitness cabin is a device for exposing ultraviolet light (UV) devoted to use in professional tanning studios under control of properly trained personnel. Ultraviolet light is emitted by 49 lamps. Time of exposure is regulated with a remote control.

Read This First

  • If the unit does not work or does not function properly, please contact your dealer immediately .
  • In case of any service work or cleaning you should turn off the main switch.
  • Any service which is not described in following manual should be done by a professional electrician.
  • Do not turn the unit on in a humid space.
  • Ensure that the unit has proper ventilation. The temperature in the room should be never higher than 25oC.


The cooling system is composed of two parts: the first cools the lamps, the second is inside of the cabin.

Cooling of the inside, and the person tanning, is done with several holes inside the machine and an exhaust fan at the ceiling. It can be regulated with a button placed at the control panel (+ and -).

After turning off the lamps, fans are working for several minutes to cool the inside of the machine and lamps.

The machine has air inputs at the bottom of the sides. Keep this place clean to avoid getting any dirt and rubbish into the cooling system. Before turning on the machine ensure that the inputs are not covered.

The room

During a session the tanning unit makes a lot of heat, so the room where it works should be cooled properly, especially during intensive work. You should also allow for fresh air to come into the room.

The temperature in the room shouldn’t be higher than 25oC.

Near the cabin in a visible place, there should be a tablet placed with a sentence:

“WARNING! UV radiation can cause damage to eyes and skin. Contact personnel to learn more about this. Always wear protective goggles. Some forms of medication or cosmetics may increase susceptibility. If you have long hair, pin tie it to avoid potential contact with a fan.”


The installation and first use of the cabin can be done only by authorised service.

  • supply conduit: 5 x 2,5 mm2;
  • fuse: 3 x 20 A;
  • 3-option switch with contacts interval not less than 3 mm, installed in
    a place easily accessible enabling staff to quickly turn off the unit in case of damage or accident;

    If a supply conduit is damaged, it should be replaced by an identical or special –  UV resistant one. Buy at the manufacturer or technical remedial works.

More information:

  • Ultraviolet light emitted by sun or UV devices may cause damage to eyes and skin. These biological effects depend on quantity and quality of exposure as well as the individual sensitivity of eyes and skin.
  • Excessive exposure can result in sunburn. Tanning too often may lead to fast skin ageing and increase a risk of skin cancer.
  • Lack of eyes protection may cause ophthalmia and in some cases, for example after cataract operation, a retina can be damaged.
  • Special caution is needed when your skin is sensitive to sun light and when you use certain medication and cosmetics.

For these reasons you should always obey the following rules:

  • Always use protective goggles;
  • Before tanning session remove cosmetics from your skin;
  • do not tan if you take medication increasing sensitivity for ultraviolet light; if you have any doubts, contact your doctor;
  • take at least 48-hour’s break between first and second tanning;
  • do not tan more than once a day including tanning in the natural sunlight;
  • obey the rules of tanning time, breaks in tanning and proper distance to lamps;
  • contact your doctor if you see any abnormal skin reaction.

It is recommended to change starters at least every two changes of lamps.
