IP Rating | What is IP Rating

IP rating is short for Ingress Protection. This is usually a two-digit grading system that’s applied to the enclosure of a mechanical or electrical item. The IP rating gives customers an indication of the item’s resistance to various types of unwanted intrusion. In home use, this tends to be useful for lighting, as it shows us which fittings are suitable for bathroom use.
