THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DRY,
WET AND DAMP LOCATIONS


NEC Definitions:

From the National Electric Code

Dry Locations:
A location not normally subject to dampness or wetness. A location classified as dry may be temporarily subject to dampness or wetness, as in the case of a building under construction.

Damp Location:
Locations protected from weather and not subject to saturation with water or other liquids but subject to moderate degrees of moisture. Examples of such locations include partially protected locations under canopies, marquees, roofed open porches, and like locations, and interior locations subject to moderated degrees of moisture, such as some basements, some barns, and some cold storage buildings.

Wet Locations:
Installations underground or in concrete slabs or masonry in  direct contact with the earth; in locations subject to saturation with water or other liquids, such as vehicle washing areas; and in unprotected locations exposed to weather.

Paramount is proud to introduce a brand new TECHNICAL category in the popular blog area of our website. In this category we plan on posting helpful information to assist viewers in making the proper choices in luminaire selection, as well as other educational information concerning the lighting industry. Our first two posts contain technical data pertaining to Cleanroom and Food Processing applications. Check back to the Learn section of our website (better yet, click the “subscribe” button to be notified of new posts automatically) often for future updates and stories.
