We have a large selection of ceiling lights for your bathroom from single enclosed fluorescent fittings to multiple spotlights on tracks. Chrome and glass combine to give stylish clean lines to enhance your bathroom. Our bathroom wall lights compliment our ceiling lights perfectly and also provide shaver socket lights as well. We had shower lights that all comply with IP44 ratings and are therefore suitable for over the bath or basins. We also have a wide range of illuminated mirrors and cabinets with plain and magnifying finishes.
Firstly it is important to understand regulations that are applied in the bathroom. Below there is all information you should need to select the right fittings.
The diagrams below show a bathroom split into four clear zones. In zones 0, 1, 2 and 3, if there is a likelihood of a water jet being used for cleaning purposes a minimum of IPx5 is required.
Zone 0 is inside the bath or shower itself and any fittings used here must be low voltage (max 12V) and be rated IP67 which is total protection when immersed in water.
Zone 1 is above the bath to a height of 2.25m. A minimum rating of IP44 is required here
Zone 2 is an area stretching to 0.6m outside the bath and above the bath if over 2.25m. An IP rating of at least IP44 is required here.
Zone 3 is anywhere outside zones 0, 1, and 2 (subject to specific limits) and where no water jet is likely to be used there is no IP rating required.
The IEE Regulations do not make specific reference to wash basins but in the opinion of The Lighting Association they should be treated as Zone 2 (i.e. IP44).
