Is that right? So how come bathroom lights are standard 240v?

Someone call the police! Screwfix are selling illegal bathroom fans!!

Because bathroom lights are usually not in zone one/two

As gap30 said, if your asking that question genuinely, please for the sake of everyone keep away from electrical work.

Also light fittings have IP ratings

Over a shower area you need 12volt with transformer that's why.

Shocking stuff.


Seriously, I might be enlightened here, I have no window in my bathroom and so have a standard 'bathroom' extractor fan wired up to my bathroom lights, which incidentally was in from date of build.

I'm not qualified but have learnt alot on site with electricians by helping with first and second fix and all my work is checked by them. I can't recite wiring regs off the top of my head, sorry if I offended you.

The 12V shower in my bathroom is utterly Sh*te ... oh hang on ...!

I'm no electrician but extractor fans typically go in zone 1 of the bathroom.

These can be mains powered, but need to be IPX4 rated.

extractorfanworld.co.uk/a-g…asp

These fans are 240v, usually wired with pull cord to come on when you switch light on

Nice stocking filler, thanks

Guys it's to do with zones, where there is more proximity to water like in a shower, then low voltages are recommended, where they may not be directly above the shower area such as fans or lights, then it's a different zone and mains voltages can be used.
It's for your own safety.
Always ensure you satisfy the safety regulations ... They are there for a reason.

I’m pretty sure these are horizontal wall mount fans and not for over a shower, hence they will be 240v with no transformer, just mains wired via 3 pole isolator.

The over over shower ones with built in lights may very well be 12v though.

Does anyone know if these are stocked at any stores?

I doubt it very much, I've never seen any of these website incredibly cheap deals in store and firmly believe they are just bait to get you to go instore in the belief they actually exist.

12v fans are referred to as SELV and has a transformer.

Heat just for the comedy value of some of the comments!

I'd suggest the next plug you rewire you get someone in to do it. My car battery is 12 v ..... will still weld a screwdriver to your wedding ring. Don't associate low voltage with safety

No you don't. Zone 0 is inside the vessel that holds liquid over the shower is zone1

here is all the info you need. you also need an isolator if fitting this


edit***** this fan should be ip 4 so can go anywhere apart from in the bath or shower tray (i mean literally in it)

Thank you. Link 3 is particularly helpful. So from the image in link 3, I think my extractor fan is in zone 3 which explains why it's 240v.

But the image you posted seems to be a little contradictory? Where's Zone 3 in that image?

Theres no such thing as zone 3 anymore. It's 0-1-2- non zoned non zoned used to be 3

But it says in link 3 that any mains voltage items fitted in zones 1 or 2 must be fitted with an RCD? Makes no difference to me though, my fan in in zone 3/unzoned

Technically the wiring may be behind a wall therefore dezoning that part of the install therefore not needing an rcd. Its all very different for all installs and can get quite convoluted

can i install myself?

The bathroom fan ain' behind the wall. I'e been to plenty of clients houses where they've pulled the front cover off. You then have a mains supply in a special location. Always put rcd protection. When 18th edition comes out I highly suspect that rcd's will become a requirement on all domestic installtion circuits. Already heard that earth rods are going to be statatury even with tns and tncs.
