IP regs : Kitchen Sink ?


Postby Reynardine » Fri Aug 03, 2007 3:20 pm

I am choosing a wall light to install roughly 1 metre above my kitchen sink. The fitting will be something like this :

No external links allowed, idiots keep trying to get free advertising.

Since it's a kitchen, do I have to observe the Zones 1,2 and 3 for electrics near water ?

Do the water ingress "IP" regulations for bathroom electrics also apply to kitchens ?

Thank you.
