IP44 bathroom wall lights are the kind of light you should be searching for when it comes to lighting your bathroom. Some rooms in your home will need to have specific lighting because of the way they are used, and it would be a dangerous idea to fit anything that doesn’t comply with health and safety rules.
When it comes to bathrooms, it is better to be safe than sorry with wall lights. In most rooms it would not matter what rating lighting you use, but in the bathroom, due to the potential mix of water and electricity, there must be some safety measures in place. IP stands for ‘ingress protection’, which means that the lighting unit is protected from water, dust or any other foreign agent getting inside. The number 44 is the level of protection that the lighting unit offers. IP44 is the minimum level of protection required for bathroom wall lights and ceiling lights. The higher the number, the more protection the light will have against any water getting inside it. Whenever you are installing lighting in a bathroom, then you must buy at least an IP44 light fixture. Anything less than this is not allowed, and could be dangerous as water and steam could get into the fitting itself. However, although an IP44 light will offer protection, you are still not allowed to fit in inside a shower cubicle or bath, and it is important to bear this in mind when designing your bathroom. If you are unsure, check with a lighting specialist who will be able to offer plenty of advice.
