Do I Need Waterproof LED Strip Lights?

When installing lights in the kitchen, bathroom or outside, there is a restriction on the type of light fittings you can use. If there is a chance your LED Strip Lights will come into contact with moisture, you will need to use a strip with a waterproof IP coating.

This acts as a protective layer and prevents moisture from reaching the light's internal components, and causing a short circuit. The level of protection offered can vary from unprotected to air tight.

If you are using your LED Strip Lights in the kitchen or bathroom you will need a minimum of an IP65 rated coating. The LED chips are encased inside a silicone gel which is able to withstand condensation and splashes of water that may result from cooking food or using taps.
