Take the Agua Spa at The Sanderson Hotel LDN, a 5 star luxury hotel to the stars, a listed building draped from ceiling to floor in luxurious white curtains, white ceilings and white tiled floor, a spray tanning equipment supplier’s nightmare. Not Crystals, with its Premium Spray Tanning Booth – Opus 3, and its In-Room Treatment mobile extraction booth - Opus 2, cleanliness of treatment and hotel rooms is never in doubt.
James Read, Celebrity spray tanning expert and based at The Sanderson, has been offering professional spray tanning treatments for 3 years with his Opus 3 and Opus 2. The immediate impression one gets when walking into his white treatment room is – it’s still white, it doesn’t smell, it’s not sticky but remains in line with the high standards one expects when visiting the Agua Spa.
“The reason I selected the Opus 3 from designer Chris Nelson (inventor & designer for Crystals), was the fact I could rely on his experience and expertise in providing me with equipment that would look after my treatment room and apply the very best tans, ensuring my clients remained comfortable throughout the entire treatment”.
The Opus 3 includes a patented re-circulating extraction technology that allows clients to be exposed to a warm flow of downward air throughout the tanning process, drying clients in the process. The dirty air (overspray) remains strictly within the confines of the booth volume and ‘scrubbed’
The spray tanning application technology is based on LVLP (Low Volume Low Pressure), minimising overspray while atomising solution into a super-fine mist for flawless application and using just an average of 40ml to 50ml per full body tan. The spray gun itself requires the minimum of maintenance, simply requiring a flush-through with warm water at the end of each day – no stripping the gun down and no adjustments necessary, which is good as there is no adjustment provided. This LVLP technology results in a much quieter system, unlike the noisy Turbine Blowers used to feed air to guns using HVLP (High Volume Low Pressure) technology which on average, apply approximately 70ml+ of solution for a full body spray.
Daniel Galvin LDN, Europe’s largest hair dressing salon and stylist to the stars, recently purchased Opus 3 for its in-salon spray tanning treatments using LDN Skins tanning products. It simply quotes “Very nice, we love it”. Again, the biggest concern for Daniel Galvin LDN was potential overspray damage to its luxurious surroundings. Not an issue with Opus 3!
The hidden costs’ of overspray damage to treatment rooms for example is considerable when looking at refurbishment costs and loss of custom due to unpleasant surroundings. Crystals LVLP technology also saves money by using less solution, increasing the number of tans per litre, per gallon and thus increasing profitability. These are factors often ignored when purchasing equipment, only to find the real cost of the equipment selection further down the road.
Opus 3 Premium, fully integrated spray tanning booths can be purchased direct from Crystals at just £4,995 + vat. There will be a delivery and installation fee of approximately £350 which will include training F.O.C if required. For those on a budget, Lease Purchase options are also available requiring a deposit of £500, followed by monthly payments of approximately £500 (12 months – equates to 25 tans per month at £20 per tan), £300 (24 months – equates to 15 tans per month at £20 per tan) and £210 (36 months – equates to 10 tans per month at £20 per tan).
It is easy to see how affordable it is to ensure your salon treatment rooms are protected from overspray damage using Opus 3 while ensuring client comfort is guaranteed. For those therapists having used Opus 3, they would settle for nothing less. Opus 3 is a superb invesment for all salons, not just premium salons.
If you are a busy salon, Opus 3 is capable of running all day, allowing tans to be applied in just 6 minutes, running back to back and never having to be switched off to cool down. In terms of reliability, we have not yet received a call in 3 years where a unit has been out of action due to breakdown.
