BATHROOM MIRROR LIGHTING

Bathroom Lighting

Bathroom Lighting can be a great way to enhance the mood and your enjoyment of the space.

Here we list some if the things to consider when lighting the bathroom.

The IEE have very specific recommendations for lighting for bathrooms and split the bathroom in to different zones to ensure electrical saftey.

The different zones require SELV (safety extra low voltage) or fittings within a certain IP class.

The zones are identified as 0-3 with zone 3 being the wettest.

Zone 0

Requires an IP rating of X7 and must be extra low voltage i.e max 12v.

Zone 1

Requires an IP rating of X4 OR extra low voltage i.e max 12v. If fittings are 240V such as using a 240v GU10 the circuit must be on a 30ma RCD

Zone 2

Requires an IP rating of X4 OR extra low voltage i.e max 12v, with the transformer located at least in zone 3

Zone 3

No  IP rating indicated.
