The intended purposes of a sunlamp product timer are to provide for reliable control of exposures and to limit acute (and delayed) damage from unintentionally long exposures. However, the maximum timer setting should also allow for selection of exposure times needed to build up and maintain a tan. The maximum timer interval is in no way to be considered as a safe limit; all ultraviolet radiation is potentially hazardous.
