Complete Guide to LED Tape Lighting


An LED tape light, also known as LED strip lighting or flexi-tape, is a powerful lighting solution that is designed on a flexible circuit board. It can be placed almost anywhere because of its ability to incorporate enclosures that protect components with various IP Ratings. Additionally, this controllable lighting option comes in a variety of colors and levels of brightness and can feature innovative technology such as Bluetooth® and uniquely programmed addressable capabilities.

In this article, we’ve made it easy for engineers and designers to quickly compare the value, usability, and durability of LED tape lighting.

Cost- and time-saving features of LED tape lighting.

Designers and engineers prefer the use of LED tape lights because they are durable, flexible, have a low profile, and are customizable—making it easier to complete projects on time and on budget. Here are seven features of tape lighting that will make planning your next lighting project easier.
