Is the LED garden light weatherproof or waterproof?
LED garden lights often come with different levels of weather resistance, which are indicated by the Ingress Protection (IP) rating. The IP rating provides information about the degree of protection the fixture offers against the ingress of solid particles (like dust) and water. The IP rating is typically expressed as IP followed by two digits, such as IP65 or IP67. Here's what these numbers generally mean:
First Digit (Protection against solids):
0: No special protection
1: Protected against solid objects larger than 50mm
2: Protected against solid objects larger than 12.5mm
6: Totally protected against dust (dust-tight)
Second Digit (Protection against liquids):
0: No special protection
4: Protected against water splashes from any direction
5: Protected against low-pressure water jets from any direction
7: Protected against the effects of temporary immersion in water
For LED garden lights, the higher the IP rating, the better the protection against weather conditions. Here are some examples:
IP65: Lights with this rating are generally suitable for outdoor use and are dust-tight (6) and protected against water jets (5). They can withstand rain and splashes but are not designed for complete immersion.
IP66: Similar to IP65 but may offer higher protection against water jets.
IP67: Lights with this rating are dust-tight (6) and can be submerged in water up to a certain depth (7). They are suitable for use in areas where temporary immersion might occur, such as during heavy rain.
IP68: Lights with this rating are dust-tight (6) and can be fully submerged in water beyond the depth specified for IP67. They are suitable for more extreme conditions, such as being fully submerged in a pond.
When purchasing LED garden lights, always check the IP rating provided by the manufacturer to ensure that the lights meet the specific weatherproof or waterproof requirements for your outdoor space. Additionally, consider the local climate and weather conditions where the lights will be installed to determine the appropriate level of protection needed.
