Luminaires that are “Suitable for Damp Locations” are approved for areas that are regularly exposed to moisture and condensation. These fixtures can safely handle limited amounts of moisture on, in, and around their electrical components. This rating also encompasses areas that are partially protected from water. However, it does not cover direct water contact.
Damp location listed LED lights are frequently used indoors for laundry rooms, over showers and bathtubs, utility rooms, unfinished basements, and similar areas. They can be used outdoors in areas that are protected, such as covered patios or porches, as these locations are usually not at risk of direct rain or snow exposure. These lights typically cost more than dry location lights because more advanced construction is required to meet the higher safety standards.
UL Listed for Wet Locations
Fixtures and lamps that are “Suitable for Wet Locations” can be installed anywhere that liquids might come in direct contact with the electronics. It could be a slow drip, a strong flow or anything in-between. They are typically used outdoors for things such as site lighting, wall packs, open-air decks, walkway lights, gazebos, signs, and holiday lights.
