IPX Ratings & Zones

Fans should also be positioned to give an optimum flow of air through the whole room and to avoid pockets of residual air. The location of planned or existing door and window openings must be considered as well as sources of odours, stale air or condensation. Grilles may need to be installed to allow air into the room, particularly with inner rooms which have no windows. Fans should be mounted as high as possible, well away from primary heat sources such as radiators. All internal doors should have the required undercut.

IEE regulations specify the installation of fans within bathrooms and showers by identifying a series of zones. IEE regulations must be adhered to for all electrical installations.

Fans must be installed in accordance with the latest IEE Wiring Regulations
17th Edition (BS7671:2008). Part 7 (Special Locations).
