The bathroom is given different tasks. On the one hand there are the spirits awaken in the morning and on the other hand evening hours invite for relaxation, such as a nice bath. A bright illumination with light enough for daily personal body care, the color of tiles and walls should especially be noted. Dark surfaces absorb the light, so that more intense bathroom lights are necessary.
When dealing with light in the bathroom security plays an important role, too. The installed ceiling light fixtures and wall lamps must meed more stringent requirements and should in particular be equipped with bulbs that are approved for damp rooms.
Bathroom - bright and inviting
In the bathroom, certain precautions need to be considered. In the shower and in the vicinity of these must be respected higher levels of protection called IP. In rest of the bathroom, however, conventional lights can be installed.
Mirror Lights donate reliably light for shaving and daily care. They come in various styles. Minimalist wall lights fit especially well in modern bathrooms. The German manufacturers like ESCALE and Décor Walther offer a wide range of those lights. Their style ranges from classical to fancy.
The protection is in this case indicated by the symbol IP (International Protection). This is followed by two numbers: the first indicates the protection against ingress of foreign bodies and the second, especially important in the bathroom, protection against water.
The protection zones are divided as follows:
Range 0 - Interior of bath or shower:
In the bath or shower, a protection of IP X7 is imperative. This means that this luminaire is protected against the effects of immersion in water. Furthermore, only a safety extra-low voltage may be applied from below 12 volts.
Area 1 - the area above bathtub or shower tray:
Luminaires with protection class IP X5 may only be used over a bathtub or shower. This means that the lamps are protected against water jets.
Area 2 - 60cm range before Bath or Shower:
In this area luminaires shall have a minimum degree of protection IP X4. This indicates that they are protected against splashing water.
Area 3 - 240cm range before Bath or Shower:
In this area luminaires must not have any special requirements. Conventional lamps with protection class IP 20 are used.
For a relaxing bath an atmospheric lighting effect is particularly important. It helps to calm down. We recommend a special variant of LED lights: RGB LEDs. This can cover a wide color range and so specifically affect mood. They have the same advantages as conventional LEDs. They are energy-efficient and durable.
