Q: So what does this new IP69k rating mean then?

A: It refers to the degree of environmental protection that a particular item, process or product posesses and simplistically it means that it is resistant to high pressure steam or water jets coming from any direction.

Technically the IP stands for Ingress Protection, the first digit 6 indicates the highest available ingress protection rating for solid particles (i.e. absolutely no dust can get inside) and the second part 9k indicates the protection rating against liquid ingress (normally water) from high pressure water or steam jet cleaning. This is a special category, created to indicate water pressure resistance at up to 80 deg.C and pressures of up to 100 bar for short periods, intended to cover products and equipment requiring steam cleaning and pressure washing, not those used underwater
