Solar flood lights are often used in the lighting fields of home yards, rural roads or small projects, and can realize the control and demand of various lighting transformations. Because of the characteristic that flood lights are often used outdoors, their waterproof performance is particularly important. So what are the different waterproof grades and waterproof effects of solar flood lights?
The protection grade IP of outdoor lights is generally IP23 or above and needs to be marked. The waterproof grade of solar flood light is generally IP65, IP66, IP67 and IP68, and the specific explanation is as follows:
1. IP65: It can prevent the water emitted from the nozzle from all directions from entering the lamp body, but it cannot be soaked in water for a long time.
2. IP66: The lamp body can prevent damage caused by heavy waves.
3. IP67: The lamp body is immersed in water for a certain time or the water pressure is below a certain standard, which can ensure that it will not be damaged due to immersion.
4. IP68: The lamp body can be immersed in water for a long time.
Therefore, in principle, IP65, IP66 and IP67 cannot be immersed in water for a long time. If they need to be immersed in water for a long time, it is better to use IP68 solar flood light. However, this type of projection lamp is relatively expensive due to its high manufacturing difficulty and advanced materials. For consumers, it may be more economical and affordable. Therefore, the waterproof grade of IP65 to IP67 is enough for use.
Therefore, we strongly recommend AvsA® Niudi’s 88L and 18 series aluminum solar flood lights. Die-cast aluminum material with professional structure IP67 waterproof design, not affected by rain, lightning strikes and humidity
On the other hand, no matter what the waterproof grade of the solar flood light is, if it is exposed to a humid and rainy environment for a long time, it is also necessary to pay attention to the regular maintenance and repair work, so as to make the service life of the lamp longer.
