Hi all, just a little reminder needed please!
I have to replace some lights in a bathroom with led's, my question is do they have to be IP65 rated, ie have the separate glass in front of the lamp? If any were whithin the shower enclosure I would say yes they do but i'm not sure in other areas of the bathroom? I know some people don't like them because the light output gets reduced because the lamp is positioned further back in the fitting.

Depends on the ceiling height as well - above 2.25m they'd be outside zones (although you might still want a higher IP rating if you considered it necessary under general suitable-for-the-environment considerations, it's not a specific bathroom requirement). Otherwise it's generally IPX4 for zones 1 & 2 (or IPX5 if exposed to water jets (e.g. for cleaning)), and for zone 1 suitable for that zone according to manufacturer's instructions. No bathroom specific IP requirements for beyond zone 1 (>600mm from bath/shower).

I don't see why Dave, no other fitting outside the zone needs it. If the room was small with a steamy shower then maybe. Saying that i have been using the jcc hybrid 6 recently. You can change the lamp part without having to take the fitting out of the ceiling. They look really nice and give a good light. They are IP65. They are about £12.00 on-line from memory, a bit more expensive from local whole saler. I don't offer the 5 year guarantee to my customers any more as they expect them changed for nothing if they go wrong. Although that isn't such a pain now its a simple lamp swap.
