Can I use any ceiling light in my bathroom?
In Ireland, the regulations for bathroom lighting is broken down to zones with different IP Ratings required. Our range includes lighting for zones 1, 2 and 3 and are rated IP44 and above.
When choosing your lighting, always remember to establish the specific area of your bathroom where it will be fitted and its exposure to water. The bathroom area has been broken down into clear zones by the electrical safety regulations to assist you to choose the right fitting that corresponds to the specified IP rating for the amount of protection needed.
Zone 0 inside the bath or shower itself. Any fitting used in this zone must be low voltage, (max 12v) and be rated at least IP67 which is total immersion proof.
Zone 1 is the area above the bath/shower tray to a height of 2.25m from the floor. It is generally considered safer to use an IP65 rated fitting in this area. It is worth noting most shower lights are IP65. If the light is mains voltage an RCD must be used to protect the circuit in this zone.
Zone 2 is an area stretching 0.6m outside the zone1 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 washbasin, within a 60cm radius of any tap to be considered as zone 2.
Zone 3 is anywhere outside zones 0, 1 and 2 (subject to specific limits) and where no water jet used for cleaning is likely to be used. In Ireland zone 3 require at least IP20 products.
If a water jet is being used to clean light fittings must have a minimum rating of IP65.
ALL ZONES - Any electrical circuits in the bathroom must be protected by a 30mA Residual Current Device (RCD). We strongly recommend you use a qualified electrician for the installation of your bathroom light fitting.
