Choosing bathroom lighting is not as easy as it sounds, and finding a bathroom chandelier can be even more difficult. Franklite have a range of bathroom chandeliers to suit both modern lighting and more traditional lighting.
For lighting purposes, the bathroom or en-suite is segmented into ‘zones’, some of which have specific regulations when it comes to light fittings. Any light fitting which is positioned within bathroom zones 1 and 2 must have an IP (Ingress Protection) rating of 44 and above. Basically this means that it is a sealed unit so that water and dust cannot get into it. The regulations are explained in a more comprehensive manner in the Franklite catalogue.
With the need to use a sealed unit in certain areas, it can be difficult to find bathroom fixtures which give the required amount of illumination. This is why Franklite have kept your bathroom design in mind when creating that special light fitting for this area. Many Franklite bathroom fittings are multi-armed, enabling each arm to contain a separate bulb and therefore multiply the amount of light output whilst keeping style.
IP rated bathroom chandeliers are much sought after because of the manufacturing difficulties encountered to ensure they comply with all the bathroom lighting regulations. Franklite can offer a choice of 3 bathroom chandeliers, 2 with crystal drops and one with glass ‘teardrops’. All three styles have matching wall brackets, also with drops and all with an IP rating of 44 therefore enabling a theme to be kept.
Bathroom lighting requires careful consideration because of the legalities regarding the regulations. Before you make a selection, make sure you are purchasing a bathroom light which is compliant and, if you are unsure, speak to a Franklite Approved Dealer. All Franklite Approved Retailers will be able to offer advice and explain the regulations to ensure you get a safe bathroom light fitting which gives as much (or as little) illumination as you want.
