Customisable LED Strip Tape
Have your LED tape supplied in fully customised lengths. With input tails soldered to the lengths you need and the option of an output connection for bends or for going around obstacles like cooker hoods.
Specifications Beam AngleSpecifications
Every light source from an LED to a simple wax candle has a beam angle. A beam angle is a measurement of how the light is distributed. GU10 LEDs and recessed downlights have a fairly narrow beam of around 40 degrees, anything within 5 degrees is classed as a medium beam.
A wax candle or traditional light bulb would have a beam angle of 360 degrees as the light shines all the way around but is less intense.
Combing brighter downlights with wider 60 degree beams allows you to space them out further, reducing the total amount of lights needed.

140 Degrees CRI 90 Ra Cable Cores 2 Cap Type Integrated LED Colour TemperatureSpecifications
Colour temperature is a measurement of appearance. Measured in Kelvins, the lower the rating, the warmer the light appears. Choosing the right temperature can have a dramatic effect on a room.
2700K - Extra Warm White
Similar to a traditional incandescent light bulb or halogen. It has a more orange and warmer tone, with a ‘soft white’ appearance. Ideal for living rooms.
3000K - Warm White
Clearer, but still quite warm. This is the ‘new norm’ for general lighting and is the most popular option. If you’re unsure I’d recommend trying this one.
4000K - Cool White
Clearer, whiter and crisp; used in commercial locations including supermarkets. Cool white appears brighter than warm white as the LED is covered in less phosphor. It can make a room appear cold and clinical but used correctly (white walls etc) it can make a room appear cleaner and modern.

Cut Points 50 mm IP RatingSpecifications
IP (International or Ingress Protection) defines a products level of resistance to dust and moisture. The first digit is for dust and the second digit is for moisture.Anything higher than IP44 can be used in bathroom zones 1 and 2. IP44 is splash proof and resistance to particles larger than 1mm.An IP65 rating offers a higher resistance to moisture and is generally used outdoors. IP65 is usually specified for bathroom downlights but according to the Building Regulations, IP44 provides adequate protection.An IP68 rating is fully water resistant and can be submersed in water, up to 1M in depth.
IP20 Input ConnectionSpecifications
Our LED tapes come with a 0.2M input cable as standard. This is a 2 core cable for our single colour strips.
We can specially solder our input tails and provide custom lengths for your project.
Choose the specification that suits your project.
LEDs Per Metre
The more LEDs you have per metre creates a more seamless, dot-free effect. COB (Chip On-Board) LED strips with 546 LEDs are seamless, while 30 LEDs per metre has wider gaps between each LED chip.
A higher wattage strip doesn't always = brigher light. The accurate way of judging LEDs on brightness is with their lumens. Our 4W LED tape is highly energy efficient and brighter than our 7.2W version.
IP20 offers no resistance to water but is fine for use in kitchen cabinets.
IP65 is water and dust resistant. It has a silicone glue coating that shields it from splashes and dust.
IP68 is fully water and dust resistant, suitable for outdoor use or submersing in water.
12V strips have shorter cut points than 24V allowing for a more accurate measurement. But 24V strips are better for longer runs over 5M.
In general 60 LEDs per metre, with an IP20 rating and 24V is ideal for the majority of applications.

480 LEDs 15W/M IP20 24V Life Expectancy 50,000 Hours Output ConnectionSpecifications
An output connection is only required when you need to connect multiple LED strips together.
If you're going around corners or connecting multiple LED strips together around a cooker hood or obstacle, we can solder an output cable or a connecting pin.
