Time and again, we have come up against the same problem: as far as outside use is concerned, there simply weren't any lights that we could recommend with a clear conscience.

And so one day we started to develop our own. This is how the company IP44.de started. Today, its outside lights warm the hearts of customers not just in Germany but throughout Europe, the USA and even Asia.

Our name is taken from a well-established industrial standard. Basically, "IP44" says that a luminaire is suitable for outdoor use. Without doubt this applies to our luminaires. But right from the start, we have gone far beyond all the standards. With both aesthetic and durable surfaces. With imperishable materials such as glass, stainless steel or aluminium. With top quality electronic components.


Caring & Useful information
Our luminaires have been designed to do their job for many years. But we need a little help from you to make sure that they don't lose their looks as the years go by and that they will continue to bring you pleasure for a long time! Please clean your IP44.de luminaires regularly. And please also remember that every material and every environment needs a different kind of care.

Application areas
All environments differ. The same goes for the material properties of our luminaires. Please consult us if you intend to use our products near the coast or in the vicinity of a swimming pool. Salt or chlorine particles in the air would make life very difficult for our luminaires. 

High humidity levels or great fluctuations in temperature, climatic conditions which normally occur in spring and autumn, can cause condensation in the glass housing. This does not indicate a flaw in the product but is a natural consequence of the physical properties of water. The best way to deal with condensation is simply to leave the luminaire switched on for a while so that the condensation can dry out.

Caring for powder-coating
The luminaires have a powder-coated finish that offers high chemical and mechanical resistance. As with every surface, the colour shade of our powder-coated surfaces can also be changed when exposed to UV radiation (e.g. sunlight). Exposure to UV light can cause changes to the colour pigments embedded in the powder coating. A gentle, solvent-free household cleaner is all that's needed to care for the luminaire, which should then be rubbed off with a dry, soft cloth. Abrasive cleaners, steel wool, scouring pads, acids or alkali cleaning agents should not be used as these would damage the surface.
