  • Features

    Our range of IP68 LED tape is fully water resistant making it the ideal choice for external applications. Although its main purpose is for use outdoors it can also be used internally, especially in wet areas such as bathrooms or steam rooms.

    The single colour warm white 2700K, 3000K and cool white 4000K versions contains a new SMD2835 LED chip type that has 60 LEDs per metre offering an almost seamless array of light, similar to a fluorescent. Our latest edition to the IP68 LED tape range is the RGBW and RGBWW versions. These are a combination of colour changing and cool or warm white strips in one neat, easy to install tape. These types of LED strips provide a combination of mood lighting and ambient lighting. Ideal for situations when you want a normal white light or if you want to switch to a colour change effect. Providing ambient and mood lighting in one.

    It is easy to install, it has a self adhesive backing and can also be stuck to a surface using mounting clips. Priced per metre, our standard stock lengths are 10 metre reels which can be cut down to the exact length you require. One of the key advantages of using LED tape is that it allows you to illuminate the exact length or area you need to, unlike a fluorescent fitting that is supplied in specific lengths.

    IP68 LED tape is factory sealed in a clear silicone coating which provides superior water and dust protection. The silicone IP68 coating is more robust than IP65 allowing it to deal with the harsh elements of outdoors and doesn't require an additional profile rail to protect it. It can even be fully submersed into a pond or water feature. Please note that no push on connectors are available for this range, and the total meterage ordered online will be sent as a single length up to 10M. If you wish to cut this into multiple lengths, then you would be required to solder a new connection onto the tape and seal it accordingly. If you require multiple lengths, please email a list of your requirements and we can cut and solder this to your exact specifications.

    I am looking to buy IP68 RGB Lighting. It seems a little bit confusing on the website if a 60 LED/m Version actually exists and is available to purchase. LEDST96RGB/24V-IP68 is clearly 96 LEDs/metre 23W/m. Is there a 60 or even 30 LED/metre versions available ? I am looking to purchase 10 meters for now. Many Thanks in Advance.
    Question by: Kevin Wilkins on 20 Nov 2022, 17:13
    In this style. we only stock the 96 LED version in IP68. We've found that a brighter version is better for outdoor use.

    https://www.downlightsdirect.co.uk/ip68-led-tape.html#outdoor-led-tape-ip68-colour-change-rgb-23-m-water-resistant

    We do have an Integral version which has 30 LEDs per metre, its IP67 rated which is waterproof but not submersible:
    https://www.downlightsdirect.co.uk/integral-led-strip-rgb-8-64w-m-ip67-priced-per-5-metre.html

    Or a 60 LED version:
    https://www.downlightsdirect.co.uk/integral-led-strip-rgb-14-4w-m-ip67-priced-per-5-metre.html

    RGB requires an additional LED driver and controller.

    Can water proof strip to wire connectors not be used instead of solder ?
    If not how do you seal soldered sections against water
    Question by: Barry Thompson on 9 Jan 2023, 11:01
    The only way of connecting these and maintaining the IP rating is to solder, silicone and heatshrink.
    Answer by: Mathew Smith (Admin) on 9 Jan 2023, 11:44
    Can this be joined in series with other LED strips (or cut and joined by wire)?
    Question by: Jed on 15 Nov 2022, 16:02
    Yes as long as you don't overload the driver. You would need to solder each cut piece.
    Answer by: Mathew Smith (Admin) on 15 Nov 2022, 17:24
    I've got two suspended ceiling tracks of 6m each, that are joined to form a rectangle with 1.5mm T&E supply to two opposing corners. I plan to run two RGB+WW strips of 6m each from a single wall mounted, dimmable switch, running off a 6A supply.
    What LED strips, driver/controller and dimmable switch do I need? Thanks.
    Question by: Peter on 18 Dec 2023, 19:44
    All you would need is 12m of LEDST96RGBWW/24VN, 2x HLG-150-24, 2x SR-1009FA and 1x SR-2858Z4

    This would be for a setup with a remote, to use Wifi instead you would swap the remote to a SR-2818WIN

    If you send an email to sales we can provide a quote including all the cutting and soldering.
