Veito® Blade 1500w, 2500W and Aero 2500W infrared heaters have an IP55 rating that makes them suitable for many uses. Veito® infrared heaters heat instantly and provide energy efficient heat and comfort to every space.

What does the IP55 rating really mean for infrared heaters?  They are used to define levels of sealing effectiveness of electrical enclosures against intrusion from foreign bodies (tools, dirt etc.) and moisture. The first indicates the degree of protection for people from moving parts and the second defines the protection level that the enclosure has from moisture (drips, sprays, submersion etc.). The tables below should help make sense of it.

First Digit (intrusion protection)

0 No special protection
1 Protection from a large part of the body such as a hand (but no protection from deliberate access); from solid objects greater than 50mm in diameter.
2 Protection against fingers or other object not greater than 80mm in length and 12mm in diameter.
3 Protection from entry by tools, wires etc., with a diameter of 2.5 mm or more.
4 Protection against solid bodies larger than 1mm (e.g. fine tools/small etc.).
5 Protected against dust that may harm equipment.
6 Totally dust tight.


Second Digit (moisture protection)
0 No protection.
1 Protection against condensation.
2 Protection against water droplets deflected up to 15° from vertical
3 Protected against spray up to 60° from vertical.
4 Protected against water spray from all directions.
5 Protection against low pressure water jets (all directions)
6 Protection against string water jets and waves.
7 Protected against temporary immersion.
8 Protected against prolonged effects of immersion under pressure.
