Bathroom Lighting Fixtures - Guide4Home Safety Considerations

Bathroom Lighting Fixtures

Bathroom lighting fixtures need to be water-resistant and certified as suitable for use in damp locations. The repercussions of using electrical systems with water could be disastrous and safety issues with bathroom lighting are of paramount importance.

Do not undertake installation of light fixtures yourself – check safety regulations and have bathroom lighting fixtures installed by professional.

Usually the main switch in a bathroom is attached to the ceiling and is controlled by a long cord. This avoids problems with people putting wet fingers directly onto the light switch. Bathroom lighting fixtures which are suitable for shower cubicles can brighten up your shower. These need to be fully water-resistant. Recessed lights with a thick glass cover can work well in shower areas also. Low-voltage lights are safer than standard fixtures.

All bathroom lighting fixtures should be marked with a UL stamp. The Underwriters’ Laboratories (UL) Inc is an independent testing laboratory which is approved worldwide. They check that the fixture meets safety requirements and specify whether it is suitable for use in bathrooms.
