LED Tape Lights

If you prefer a flexible solution to your lighting needs, flexible LED tape lights are the best

options. They are also called LED strip lights or LED ribbon lights. These remarkably

inconspicuous LED lights can easily be taped anywhere in the home with ease. The lights can

even be sliced into sections to fit your exact dimensions. We offer these tape lights, and they

are suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, and color changing and low voltage options.

The extraordinary versatility of the LED tape light is used in a broad variety of lighting projects

such as decorative accent lighting above kitchen cabinets or perhaps dramatic halo lighting

placed around a flat screen television or mirror.

There are numerous things to deliberate when ensuring you pick the appropriate LED tape light

and all the necessary components which will allow it to operate as you had imagined.

Where to Place Your LED Tape Lights

Where should the LED tape light be fitted: indoors, where it cannot be touched by water,

outdoors in a wet spot that has some direct exposure to snow, rain, etc. Or perhaps in a moist

location exposed to a degree of humidity such as under a covered porch, bathroom ceiling, and

under an awning outdoors. If this is so, check the recommendations of the manufacturer to

ensure your LED tape light is damp or wet location approved.

How much LED Tape Light Do You Require?

Depending on the scope and size of the project you have in mind, you may need a continuous

length of LED tape light, or you might need to attach several distinct lengths together until you

reach your goal. The first step is to measure and record the length of each section in inches.

How to Power the Whole Tape Light Installation?

Generally, a low voltage LED tape light will require a LED driver to give it power. The LED driver

converts the AC line power (120V or perhaps 277V) to the appropriate DC voltage (commonly

24V DC or 12V DC) or normalizes the current (usually 700 or 350 milliamps or mA) for the tape

light. The drivers may also contain components to allow them to be dimmable or optional steel

attachments to store the LED driver as well as its electrical splices safely.

 Hardwired – Wired to the electrical power directly supplied by a building or home making

it controllable using a dimmer or wall switch.

 Plug-In – Connects to the LED driver which is plug into an electrical outlet. Where your

tape light needs a separate LED Driver, ensure you pick the right voltage (24 or 12V)

and that you have correctly planned how much wattage you require.

Do you Need a Dimmable Light?

You can choose a dimmable light if you want to regulate the amount of light or control the mood

in the environment. Depending on the tape light, you have picked, there may be a specific

dimmer controller specified in the accessories section.
