Option - Full length Metallic Canopy with 5 Philips TL01 Narrowband Tubes

We have developed a new 5XPhilips TL01 Narrowband Tube Canopy in conjunction with a major British Manufacturer. All metallic design (coated white), metallic safety guard, twin timers on a swivel stand. Can be used horizontally or vertically. Excellent unit at an economy price of £2180 (inc. delivery and installation).

Height 1840mm (73ins), unit width 580mm (21ins) with light face of 420mm (15ins).

The main differences between the metallic “economy unit” and the more expensive “UPVC” 9 Tube canopy other than their physical appearance and construction are:-

  • UPVC canopy has a wider light face and hence greater body coverage/treatment area.
  • UPVC canopy is slightly curved to fit the contours of your body – economy unit is flat.
  • UPVC canopy can hold up to 9xPhilips TL01 Tubes – “economy” unit has maximum of 5.
  • UPVC canopy has acrylic safety guard with UV transparency – “economy” unit has metallic safety guards.

Both units are great units and will treat your skin and get your condition under control.

Option Mini Narrowband Unit - Philips Narrowband

This narrowband mini-unit is ideal for treating small areas of psoriasis, vitiligo etc and is excellent for treating smaller patches on the body – especially good for treating just hands, arms and legs. However, if you are affected over large parts of the body (ie. have many small patches or larger patches) this unit will not be sufficient for your needs, and you will need to consider a larger canopy that will give you a greater body coverage. This unit is not suitable for people who are affected over a large body area.

The unit comes on an adjustable tripod stand using the Philips PL01/(TL01) 36w  UVB Narrowband Tubes. Light unit (not including stand) is 570mm(22.5″), width 300mm (12″) weight is 4.3Kg

The swivel stand allows you to use the unit standing up (face, arms, elbows, arms), over a chair (legs, knees, feet) or over a bed (the tripod stand can make it difficult to use over some divans). The unit is black with 4 minute timer and total usage counter. Can be easily taken down and stored in a cupboard when not in use.

Superb unit for £990 (inc. delivery), with two genuine Philips 36w tubes, making it much more efficient than hand held models. Delivery is normally within 3 working days
