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 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 ideal choice for the majority of domestic or commercial applications. Available in 2700K extra warm white, 3000K warm white, 4000K cool white colour temperatures and RGB colour changing.

Lumen Outputs and Cut Points


Power Supplies

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 one to meet the demands of your application.

The rating of the power supply is determined by the length of strip you require. See our tables of power below for some examples:


Controllers

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 but you will need a mains dimmable LED driver which we also have in stock.

Colour changing (RGB) LED strip is different as you will obviously want to change colours and have different lighting effects such as fade in / out and flashing modes etc. Our LED controllers range from basic infra-red to more advanced RF (radio frequency) to Wi-Fi controlled.

Some of our RF and Wi-Fi controllers allow multiple runs of strips to be controlled wireless. This is allows different runs to be controlled at the same time without having to run an additional cable between them.

For a basic single zone colour changing controller we recommend our new RF easy controller:

For more complicate runs were you want to have multiple runs (known as zones) you can use one controller to operate them all. You'll need to use multiple receivers like these:

You can control up to 8 separate zones by using this remote control:


Other Accessories

For longer runs, usually over 10 metres you may require additional amplifiers or cables. We can also supply any LED strip with a pre-soldered connecting cable to any length you need. 


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.

Design

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.

I have used this product quite a few times with complete satisfaction. I consider it to be well made and well priced. As time goes by I seem to find an ever growing number of applications for it, this time it is under the leading edge of the steps leading to my new patio.

The ‘warm white’ option is still a little ‘cool’ in colour temperature.

Did you find this review helpful?

Nice to have a true "warm" white led strip. Thought it may be a little dim for under kitchen cupboards at first (replacing 20W halogen G4) but now all the cupboards are complete, this LED strip is perfect. Gives a good light both to work in and to give a nice ambience to the kitchen.
