Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Editor’s Note -

Stay safe, says tech ex­pert Dar­ren Stan­i­forth from NICEIC ➤ Al­ways buy out­door light­ing equip­ment from a rep­utable

re­tailer and make sure the light fit­tings are weath­er­proof. ➤ Good light fit­tings should carry an IP rat­ing, which

in­di­cates how well they stand up to ex­ter­nal con­di­tions. ➤ Any lights that are plugged into an out­door socket should be taken in­side af­ter use, un­less they are clearly la­belled as wa­ter­proof. ➤ Bring wa­ter­proof gar­den lights in­side dur­ing the win­ter.

They are not de­signed to stay out all year round.
