Sunbeds
Product description
Commercial sunbed used for cosmetic tanning purposes.
Risk
The product poses a risk of skin burns because the manufacturer’s marking in the device gives a false information of the UV type of the sunbed and consequently UV irradiance of it as it should not be classified to UV type 3 determined in the standard EN 60335-2-27:2003. The erythemally effective irradiance shall not exceed 0,15 W/m2 for both wavelengths shorter or equal than 320 nm and longer than 320 nm. In the lower part the measured values were 0,153 W/m2 (wavelength λ≤320 nm) and 0,229 W/m2 (wavelength λ>320 nm) and in the upper part the measured values were 0,611 W/m2 (wavelength λ≤320 nm) and 0,230 W/m2 (wavelength λ>320 nm). The total erythemally effective irradiance (0,841 W/m2) was 2,8 times higher than UV type 3 irradiance upper limit (0,3 W/m2). The product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 60335-2-27.
