What is IP Rating ?

All LED products have an IP (Ingress Protection) rating. This is the number describing the resistance of the product to solids (from finger touch to dust) and liquids. IP Rating is a two digit number. First number is the degree of protection against solids and second number is protection against liquids. For example; our 10 Watt LED Floodlight has an IP Rating of 65. It is written as IP65, first digit 6 means that it has total protection against dust and second digit 5 means it has protection against low pressure jets of water. So it is dustproof and can be safely used on deck.
