I was merely asking if, a sealant had to be used, between the wall and the surface-mounted fitting, around the sides, to keep moisture from entering through the base of the fitting.
Yes, the IP system is used over here, it makes so easy in selecting enclosures and other fittings to be used outdoors.
I do quite a bit of work in Freezing Works and with these being Hosing down Areas, we require IP ratings of IP56-66 and also Chemical resistance(Chlorine Foam), everything needs to be well sealed.
