Down lights in a shower?

Down lights in a shower?

You just need a light thats IP4 rated or higher in a shower area. These are more "waterproof" and can therefor stand the steam coming out.

It may be cheaper then for just the door part, but they will still need to do some side panels as the door would be to big for just a door. Maybe 500 - 600?
