IP (Ingress Protection) rating relates to how resistant the light is to moisture and dust. The higher the IP rating, the more protected the light is. Bathroom and outdoor lights should be at least IP44 rated so that they are protected from splashes and weathering
LED Colour Temperature
‘Colour temperature’ relates to the colour shade of the light, measured in Kelvins (K). There are 4 main LED light colours to choose from:
Very warm (under 2700K) and warm white (2700-3200K) indicates a yellow tint for subtle, cosy lighting better suited to bedrooms and living rooms.
Daylight bulbs (4000K-5000K) imitate natural light making them a versatile choice for any space.
Cool white (4000K-5000K) indicates more of a blue hue and bright lighting which complements more modern and contemporary decor, ideal for bathrooms and kitchens.
Types of Bulb
With many different types of bulb to choose from, picking the right one is key. We’ve highlighted some of the most popular to help you select the right one for your fitting and room.
Bayonet cap (BC) bulbs come with a push and twist locking mechanism and are usually used for mains voltage lamps, though they may also be found in some low voltage halogen lamps. The Small bayonet cap (SBC) is typically 15mm in diameter, while the Bayonet cap is 22mm in diameter.
Edison screw cap (E type) bulbs are the standard screw-in light bulb used widely around the world. These are available in a range of different sizes and apply to different types of bulb including LED, CFL and incandescent. The two most popular are E14 and E27.
GU and GZ types are the most common spotlight bulbs used in a wide range of our lighting. GU4 and GU5.3 are pins, while GU10 and GZ10 have locking mechanisms that require a push and twist to fit the bulb. The GU10 has a slight bevel whereas the GZ10 does not and has a more square base. These bulbs typically come in Halogen or LED versions.
Bathroom lighting regulations
When choosing lighting for your bathroom, you must take into account the Bathroom Zone that your light will be fixed in to determine which IP rating is required to make your light safe and splash-proof. When choosing bathroom or wetroom lighting, it’s always best to double-check zoning with your electrician before purchasing any fixtures or fittings.
Bathroom zones indicate the distance of a fitting or fixture from the water source. IP rating relates to how resistant the light is to moisture and dust.
Zone 0 - inside a bath or shower. Any fitting in this area must use a low voltage supply that is a maximum of 12v with an IP rating of at least IPx7, meaning it can safely be immersed in water.
Zone 1 - the area directly above zone 0 to the height of 2.25m from the bottom of your bath or shower tray. Fittings required in this area must use a 240v power supply, a 30ma residual current device and have an IP rating of IPx5 so that they are protected from water in all directions. Most shower lights are rated at IP65.
Zone 2 - 0.60m area outside the perimeter of the bath to the height of 2.25m from the floor. All fittings within this zone must have an IP rating of IPx4. If jets of water are used in your bath or shower, the fitting would instead require a rating of IPx5. It is safest to regard the area 0.60m around your basin and tap(s) as zone 2.
Zone 3 - anywhere outside the other zones where no water jet is used. No IP rating is required in this zone, however, we recommend that you use lights with an IP rating of at least IP20.
Please note: A hanging or pendant-style fixture may be fixed in a zone 3 area, but if the body of the pendant hangs into a zone 2 or zone 1 space, then the light must have the appropriate IP rating in order to be safe from moisture.
