The different protection classes are represented by the abbreviation IP ("International Protection") and two subsequent numbers. The first number stands for immunity to foreign bodies and dust, while the second digit always indicates immunity to water. Several protection classes are suitable for models that are permanently exposed to a wide range of weather conditions.

IP44 represents the standard degree of protection for luminaires installed outdoors. In this case, they are protected against small foreign bodies, as well as splashing water from all sides. If the column is located in the garden, it may happen that jet water from the hose hits the lamp. In this case, the IP45 rating is suitable. If there is gravel or sand near the lamp, the IP65 and IP66 ratings are suitable, which additionally protects the lighting compositions from dust penetration.
