When are waterproof switches and sockets a good idea

A waterproof socket is a mandatory addition to any wet or damp environment where you’d like to also have access to electricity for appliances or charging stations. Their most common application in a home is in a bathroom or laundry rooms, especially around sinks, in kitchens and around water sources like faucets.

Aside from the obvious initial protection, they also have surge protection, saving any electrical installations in its vicinity from surcharges. We provide two types of waterproof sockets:

  • For indoor;
  • Outdoor use.

The main difference between them is that the outdoor variety has a port for an electrical cable, which is protected with an additional rubberized nozzle.

The outdoor garden power sockets have an IP65 ingress protection, allowing you to comfortably use electrical power even during an active rain or snow storm without having to worry about a short circuit. The general classification of these sockets and switches is based on the area of usage and their ingress protection.

Visually, they are the same size, however, based on further inspection, it’s easy to spot the see through spring loaded shutter. Its main value is more of a visual, design choice, which makes it very suitable for indoor use in bathrooms and wet household areas.

The way of connection to the power grid is from the inside, allowing for further protection of the socket and any users. The outdoor variety does not have the visual distinction but rather has a UV protective cover, which is specifically designed to withstand direct sunlight for a prolonged period of time.
