IP Rating Guide

Shane McGrath posted this on 25 Nov 2014

When it comes to outdoor installations for CCTV and eletrical equipment. Making sure your equipment uses an appropriate IP rating is key. Where applicable we aim to list most of our security equipments IP rating so that you know whether or not it is suitable for outdoor use. As standard surveillance cameras should be IP66 in order to survive heavy rain.

IP Rating Lookup Table
