Electrical installation

Before you begin laying down the electrical installation, it must be first planned in detail or at least the functional requirements and the location of its individual elements must be outlined. The type of lighting fixtures and its switching method must be defined. You must also decide if you want to have electric floor heating, water heater, water heating boiler, bathtub with water massage, washing machine or a fan. All these devices need their power supplies properly planned.
Electric wires are laid in or underneath the plaster layer. Fittings used in the bathroom must be waterproof, hidden in insulating casings. Sockets should have earthing pins and be hermetically sealed, but most importantly they must be splashproof, i.e. resistant to water splash. The number of required sockets must be planned in detail, that way you will avoid constant reconnecting plugs of different devices.
Pursuant to applicable regulations, sockets should be installed at a safe distance (min. 60 cm) from shower cubicles and bathtubs. Electrical equipment must also be installed at a certain level above the floor – lighting switches at 1.4 m above the floor, 230V sockets – 1.2 m above the floor, and lighting fixtures – 2.0 m above the floor.
You should have bathroom lighting system figured out already at the planning stage. The same applies to the distribution of lighting points and location of switches.
If you want to have electric floor heating in our bathroom, you must include it in your electrical installation design.
