The IP (Ingress Protection) value indicates the level of protection that a light fixture or luminaire provides against the intrusion of solids, like dust particles and liquids (water, moisture).
The IP Value for lighting fixtures is typically expressed as IPXX, where the first X Represents the protection against solids and the second X represents the protection against liquids.
Below, you will find the most common IP values and their protective assets.
|IP44||Splashwater proof (used for lightings around a bathtub or shower cabin)|
|IP54||Splashwater / dustproof|
|IP67||Dustproof / submerged for 30 minutes (Used in a bath or shower)|
|IP68||Dust proof / waterproof (can be submerged)|
