Why are impact ratings important? For commercial and industrial sites, where a risk exists that the lights may get struck by an object or machinery, having lights that can survive these incidents are probably worthwhile. This rating, from IK00 to IK10, describes the standard for each type of hit.

IK Rating Level of Protection
IK00 Not protected.
IK01 Protected against an impact of 0.14 joules. This is equal to the impact of a 0.25-kg object dropped from 56 mm above the impacted surface
IK02 Protected against an impact of 0.2 joules. This is equal to the impact of a 0.25-kg object dropped from 80 mm above the impacted surface
