Installation of electrical equipment in bathrooms.
For the installation of electrical equipment in bathrooms such as hairdryers special regulations have been established.
O.D.F offers 2 types of hairdryers :
Hairdryer Class II volume 3 (art. Ref. 880 10 / 881 10 / 881 17) are removable : These kind of hairdryer can be installed in Volume 3.
The hairdryer containing the electrical part of the product must not enter into volume 2 by extending its cable to the maximum length. (Shortening of the cable on demand).
All electrical circuits within bathrooms must be protected by Residual Current Devices (RCD) not exceeding 30mA.
These regulations have been established in order to avoid accidents caused by penetration of water or solid parts into to electrical motor. (Ingress Protection IP24 : protected against water splash from all directions).
In order to meet these demands, the cable of removable hairdryers may be shortened.
These notes are for information only and do not replace the agreement by a qualified independent controlling office.
Only qualified persons are allowed to install electrical equipment and they are the only responsible for these installations.
Standards for implantation of electrical devices in a bathroom.
Hairdryers are subject to safety standards for installation in bathrooms or showers.
