In most sunbed brochures there is a table showing the minimum cubicle size. The walls around my sunbeds do not go up to the ceiling so the air can circulate above. I have also recently had a small vent put into the bottom of the door on each cubicle. If the salon has a false lowered ceiling it can get quite hot in the salon so I have replaed some of the ceiling tiles with open ones to let the exess heat escape into the void above the false ceiling. As far as I'm aware there arent any strict rules and regulations but you want to be comfortable working in there and obviously dont want the sunbeds to get too hot to use. Hope this helps pm me if you need any further information

Sorry forgot to mention - the lie down bed has a large tube from behind the bed which is vented out throught the wall - (similar to a tumble drier). this is behind the bed so not too unsightly. The engineer who installs your bed will do this for you. I also open the windows in mid summer to let excess heat escape.
