Product Safety & Standards
The IP Code (or Ingress Protection Rating, sometimes also interpreted as International Protection Rating) consists of the letters IP followed by two digits or one digit and one letter and an optional letter. These two digit numbers refer to the level of protection the product has and it is important that you choose fittings with correct ratings according to where they are installed within the bathroom.
Our illuminated mirror and cabinets have special protection against the ingress of moisture and are manufactured to meet the IP44 standard, thereby making it suitable for use in Zones 2 and 3 of a bathroom with reference to the above diagram.
We have some mirrors that are built to an IP65 standard (please check product details), thereby making these mirrors suitable for use in Zones 1, 2 and 3 with reference to the above diagram.
The CE marking is a mandatory conformity marking for certain products sold within the European Economic Area (EEA). The CE marking is found even on products sold outside the EEA, because they are either products manufactured in the EEA and have been exported, or they were manufactured in other nations which have EEA as a prime market. This makes the CE marking recognizable worldwide even to people who are not familiar with the European Economic Area.
The Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive 2002/95/EC, RoHS, short for Directive on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment, was adopted in February 2003 by the European Union.
The RoHS directive took effect on 1 July 2006, and is required to be enforced and become law in each member state.
This directive restricts (with exceptions) the use of six hazardous materials in the manufacture of various types of electronic and electrical equipment. It is closely linked with the Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE) 2002/96/EC which sets collection, recycling and recovery targets for electrical goods and is part of a legislative initiative to solve the problem of huge amounts of toxic e-waste.
A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source. LEDs are used in many devices and are increasingly used for general lighting.
LEDs emit more light per watt than incandescent light bulbs. The efficiency of LED lighting fixtures is not affected by shape and size, unlike fluorescent light bulbs or tubes.
