IK rating (International Standard IEC 62262:2002 and IEC 60068-2-75:2014) is the international standard which defines the degrees of protection against external mechanical impact provided by enclosures for electrical equipment.

Under this standard, Survivor’s range of luminaires are typically rated as IK10+. However, our products are designed to withstand the toughest conditions and are tested beyond this standard until failure. Survivor products are tested to IK26 ensuring unfounded extended durability and hi performance in extreme conditions.

The table below outlines the different classifications covered by the IK standard
