We have many Pharmaceutical LED Lighting fixtures that are wash down ready. And all our NSF-rated lights are wash-down ready with IP68 / IP69K washdown ratings.

You should ensure everything connecting the light meets NSF ratings and certifications. There is nothing particularly hard about installing our NSF fixtures. Follow the instructions closely. Do not alter the lights.
