LED tape is a self adhesive lighting strip that contains a row of LEDs. It is a versatile lighting solution that can be used in many lighting applications. LED tape is easy to install, smaller installations can be done in a matter of minutes with no experience required.
Each LED strip has a self adhesive backing, which can be peeled off and stuck to any clean surface. It can be cut down to the exact length you want allowing you to illuminate the exact length or area you need to.
As part of our 'LED Strip Fit' range we are able to supply the strips to your exact specifications. This includes pre-cut strips from as small as 50mm ranging to 100+ metres. We can included soldered connecting cables to any length you desire. Longer lengths require a bit more planning so feel free to contact us directly and we will advise on the best possible solution for your project.
Rated at IP65, it is manufactured with silicone glue coating which improves heat dissipation and increases its life expectancy when compared to inferior resin which can deteriorate over time. Our new and improved 60 LEDs per metre tape now features an SMD2835 LED chip type with high colour rendering optics as standard. The higher 90CRI rated LED chips are able to reproduce colours more accurately and is even brighter.
Superseding the once market leading SMD5050 LED chip type, SMD2835 is brighter and is the ideal choice for the majority of domestic or commercial applications. Available in 2700K extra warm white, 3000K warm white and 4000K cool white colour temperatures.
- LEDs per metre: 60 LEDs per metre. Also available in a lower output 30 LEDs per metre version.
- Priced per metre
- Colour temperatures and lumens:
- 2700K Extra warm white - 960 lumens per metre
- 3000K Warm white - 960 lumens per metre
- 4000K Cool White - 1080 lumens per metre
- Voltage: Available in 12V DC or 24V DC
- Wattage: 14.4 watt per metre
- LED type: SMD2835 (supersedes SMD5050)
- Beam angle: 120 degrees produces a nice even beam spread
- CRI: High CRI90 - reproduces colours more vividly
- LED chip type: Epistar
- Dimmable? Yes but the right LED driver or controller must be selected:
- Check out our mains dimmable LED drivers.
- Or our non dimmable drivers.
We have an LED driver table below
- Life expectancy: 50,000 hours
- Guarantee: 3 years
- Rated at IP65 fully water and dust resistant from front of tape (also available in IP20)
- Approvals: RoHS, CE and FCC.
- Brand: LED Strip Fit
Because these LED strips operate on low voltage (12V or 24V DC) they require a power supply (or LED driver) to power them. It is important to select the correct LED driver to meet the demands of your application.
The rating of the power supply is determined by the length of LED strip you require. You multiply the wattage per metre which is 14.4W by the total length of LED tape. See our table of power below for some examples using dimmable and non dimmable LED drivers:
LENGTH WATTAGE NON DIM DRIVER DIMMABLE DRIVER 1M 14.4W ECP15-24VF-1 ELED-15-24T 2M 28.8W LPV-60-24 ELED-30P-24T 3M 43.2W LPV-60-24 ELED-60P-24T 5M 72W LPV-100-24 ELED-90P-24T 10M 144W HLG-150H-24A ELED-150P-24T
Depending on your application and which type of LED strip you require, you may need a controller. If you're using single colour LED strip they can be switched on and off by a light switch. You would need to wire the LED driver into your lighting circuit. If you wanted to dim single colour LED strips, you can dim them using an ordinary LED dimmer switch such as the Varilight V-Pro but you will also need a mains dimmable LED driver which we also have in stock.
Cutting & Soldering
Although we offer this service, here's a video that shows you how to do it yourself. You can either solder a cable directly onto the end or solder a female or male connecting pin.
Our experienced design team can help you plan out your installation every step of the way. We can provide you with your own personal wiring diagram and help you select the right LED drivers and accessories. If you've got some plans or just an idea please contact us for advice by email or telephone at: 01706 521188.

120 Degrees Brand LED Strip Fit CRISpecifications
CRI stands for Colour Rendering Index. It is a measurement of how well a light source renders the true colour of an object compared with natural daylight.
Rated out of 100, with daylight scoring a perfect 100. Lights with 90 CRI and above are classed as being high CRI. Lights with 80 CRI are the industry standard.
90 Ra Cable Cores 2 Cap Type Integrated LED Colour TemperatureSpecificationsMost of the LED lights we offer are available in the big 3 colour temperatures which are:2700K - Extra warm white has a warmer tone, like a halogen, although not quite as orange.3000K - Warm white is a mid range colour tone. Not as orange as 2700K and not as harsh as 4000K. This is the most popular colour temperature.4000K - Cool white (or neutral white), although clearer and slightly brighter than the others, it can make a room feel cold and clinical. Used correctly in the right environment it can make a room appear more modern.If you're unsure about colour temperatures we have colour temperature adjustable downlights available. These downlights contain multiple colour temperatures that can be changed either by a dip switch, wall switch or App. More information about them can be found here.If you want a brighter light then choose something with more lumens. The brightness difference in colour temperatures is barely 5%. Dimensions Located Below Specifications Table GTiN 0713803685755 IP RatingSpecifications
This is the resistance to dust and moisture. The first digit is for the resistance to dust and the second digit is for moisture.Anything higher than IP44 can be used in bathroom zones 1 and 2.An IP65 rating offers a higher resistance and is generally used outdoors.An IP68 is fully water resistant and can be submersed in water, up to 1M in depth.
IP65 LEDs Per Metre 60 LEDs (14.4W/M) Life Expectancy 50,000 Hours Product Type LED Tape Sku LEDST60* VoltageSpecifications
AC standards for alternating current and DC standards for direct current.
Mains voltage is 230V AC and has a tolerance of 10%, some products are 220V or 240V AC which means they can be classed as mains voltage.
DC voltages usually require an LED driver to convert the mains voltage AC into low voltage DC. Popular DC voltages are 12V or 24V DC.
