When it comes to lighting up your bathroom there many ways to do it, but what is the best for bathrooms?
What makes a light a bathroom light?
IP Rating stands for Ingress Protection which is one of the key points you must look out for when choosing your bathroom light. Below diagram shows the different lighting zones and the recommended IP Rating for each of the zones.
Zone 0 – Would be items inside the bath of shower itself. Any fitting that is used in this zone must be low voltage and be rated at least IP67 which is total immersion proof.
Zone 1 – This area is usually situated above the bath or shower to a height of 2.25m from the floor. This zone minimum required IP Rating is IP45 but the general consensus is that IP65 is most suitable for this zone.
Zone 2 – This is an area stretching 0.6m outside the perimeter of the bath and to a height of 2.25m from the floor. In this zone an IP rating of at least IP44 is required. In addition it is good practice to consider the area around a wash basin, within a 60cm radius of any tap to be considered as zone 2.
Outside Zones – are anywhere outside zones 0,1 and 2 (subject to specific limits) and where no water jet is likely to be used. There are no special IP requirements in this zone, however we suggest that you consider a light with an IP rating of at least IP20+.
Bathroom Wall Lights – Wall lights in the bathroom are the sure way to ensure you add a bit of flare and style to your bathroom. These are more common with larger bathrooms and are commonly placed above the sink in the bathroom.
Bathroom Mirror Lights – Having a light above the mirror, around the mirror or even just a mirror that lights up is great to ensure that your style and functional needs for lighting within the bathroom are met.
