Understanding IP ( Ingress Protection ) Codes

CRA International would like to show you this little chart.

IP Codes are the little IP (ingress protection) numbers that come with locks and handles from Cra International. It shows their suitability for a particular use.  If you’ve manufactured a waterproof enclosure, say, for cleaning purposes or adverse weather conditions, you don’t want the handle to leak and let you down. Likewise, if you don’t need your enclosure to be waterproof, why waste money on a higher spec lock?

Have a look at the table below to help you decide exactly what you need – or what you don’t
