Bathroom electrical installation must comply with the rules in force (standard NF C 15-100/A2). This regulation, evolving, divides the bathroom in 4 volumes, each subject to specific instructions.
Volume 0: in the tub or the receiver, no light.
Volume 1: from the bottom of the tub or the receiver up to 2,25 m height.
- Are allowed 3 class lights powered by TBT (very low voltage) 12V DC (30 volts DC maximum) and accumulation (models horizontal exclusively placed the highest possible) electric water heaters.
- Recommended IPx5 protection index (against the jets), at least IP44.
Attention (added 10/28/2016)
In the absence of your shower door (this concerns also the bathtubs if you have a hose with a handheld), volume 1 is extended up to 1, 20 m, with starting point directly above the shower head or the departure of the hose. The following volumes are therefore shifted accordingly. Volume 3 is for example at 1.80 m of this starting point (1, 20 m + 60cm of volume 2). And you can ask more from collegesanduniversitiesinusa.com.
However this measure remains horizontal and does not affect the installation of your spots on the ceiling, it will be rather installing outlets and switches.
Volume 2: space horizontal 60 cm around the tub or shower, and up to 2.25 m high.
- Heating devices, luminaire of class accumulation of class 1 in 230 volts 2, electric water heaters.
- Protection class IPx4, IP 44 to a minimum.
Volume 3: space horizontal 2,40 m after the limits of volume 2 and height 75 cm above the volumes 1 and 2.
- Equipment class 1 or 2 230 volts, protected by a differential device high sensitivity 30 Ma.
- Index of protection IPx1 or IPx 3.
