The first digit after IP ranks a product's protection against solid objects. The second digit after the IP rates a product's ability to protect against liquids. The Astron Solar Floodlight is IP56 rated making it our most waterproof light yet. IP56 means the Astron is protected against dust - limited ingress (no harmful deposit) and protected against strong jets of water e.g. for use on shipdecks - limited ingress permitted.
