  • Features

    LED strip tape provides a continuous array of light that can be cut down to the exact size you require. It can also be extended to infinitely longer lengths by integrating additional accessories and LED drivers into the run.

    The versatility of LED tape has made it increasing popular as it allows users to design their own unique lighting installations. With steady reductions in the cost prices of LED lighting in recent years it's now affordable to everyone. Anything from smaller linear lengths for under LED cabinet lighting in kitchens to rectangular shaped masterpiece designs for cove lighting can easily be achieved.

    Choose between the popular colour temperatures of 2700K extra warm white, 3000K warm white, 4000K cool white or 6000K daylight. We also have a separate listing for colour changing LED strip tape known as RGB (Red, Green, Blue) which also includes the more advanced RGB+WW and RGB+W variants.

    Our new personal favourite that is ideal for under cabinet kitchen lighting is the dim to warm strip known as 'Sunset Strip'. Not just limited to 1 colour temperatrure, it has a range of 1800K to 3000K, reducing in colour temperature as it dims in brightness. Providing a brighter, cleaner ambient lighting effecting for chopping and those mundane duties like emptying the dishwasher etc, followed by a more cosier 1800K sunset style background effect. This effect can be achieved with a dimmable LED driver and an ordinary LED compatible dimmer switch, or Lightwave smart switch - no special controllers required.

    Our high output 26W per metre LED tape emits up to 3050 lumens per metre. This is ideal for commercial lighting or in areas where you need more light. Just like the rest of our single colour LED tapes it has a high CRI (Colour Rendering Index). With a CRI90 rating it reproduces colours more accurately, almost as they would appear under normal daylight conditions. Most other flexible LED tapes on the market are CRI80 and charge a premium for high colour rendering versions, our range is CRI90 as standard at no extra cost.

    We've now standardised on 24V LED tapes as our latest COB strip has the shorter 50mm cut points as standard which was the main USP (Unique Selling Point) of the 12V version. Another advantage of 24V LED tape is that you can run longer lengths of up to 10 metres without having to consider 'volt drop' issues. If you do require even longer runs then contact our lighting experts and we'll explain you how to do it and which items you need, depending on your application.

    As part of our own LED Strip Fit brand of products we can supply LED tape made to measure to the exact lengths you require. We can include soldered input and output cables or plug-in pins for bends and corners. This way no wastage is necessary and valuable time can be saved during installations.

    Which LED Tape?

    If you want to achieve a subtle background lighting effect we recommend the 70 LEDs (4W) per metre version. This provides a sufficiently bright lighting effect that's highly energy efficient.

    Our most popular choice is the 480 LEDs per metre COB version which offers a continuous, seamless and bright lighting effect similar to a fluorescent tube. This version has a lumen output of up to 1650-2000 lumens per metre. This has eight times as many LEDs per metre as the other LED strips on the market such as the SMD5050 60 LED.

    For external lighting applications we recommend our IP68 rated LED tape which is fully encapsulated and can be fully submersed under water.

    If you don't want to be stuck with just one colour and want the option of blues, greens, reds and many other colours, you should take a look at our RGB colour changing LED tapes.

    Lumens (brightness)

    • Single colour 70 LEDs per metre SMD2835 produces 650 to 680 lumens per metre.
    • Dim tone LED tape with 120 LEDs per metre produces 1460 lumens per metre
    • Single colour 126 LEDs per metre produces 2770 to 3050 lumens per metre. This version is super bright.
    • COB LED tape offers a new revaluation in LED strip lighting with 480 LEDs per metre it produces 1650-2000 lumens per metre. This LED tape will one day become the industry standard.

    To select the correct LED driver (also known as an LED power supply or LED transformer) follow these 4 rules:

    1. The voltage of the LED tape must match the LED driver. These LED tapes are all 24V and require a 24V constant voltage LED driver (not constant current).
    2. The wattage rating of the LED driver must be big enough to carry the full load of the LED tape, or the total lengths x wattage of tapes that you're connecting to it. Our LED drivers can be loaded to 100%, a 60W driver means 60W.
    3. If you want dimmable single colour LED tape you'll need a dimmable LED driver and an LED compatible dimmer switch.
    4. If in doubt please contact us, if you email your requirements to us we'll get back to you quickly and answer any other questions you have. Ordering LED tape can seem complicated especially if you're new to it but we've been selling this for over 10 years and consider ourselves experts in this field.

    About IP Ratings

    We offer three different IP (International Protection, or more widely known as Ingress Protection) ratings which offer different resistances to dust and water. Ranging from IP20 which has no water resistance to IP68 LED tape which is fully water and dust resistant and can even be used outdoors or fully submersed in water.

    The most popular version is IP20 as it offers adequate protection for the majority of applications and costs less. Some users prefer the IP65 rated version regardless of any water risk. IP20 is fine for under cabinet use.

    All of our LED Strip Fit tapes are coated in a silicone glue which improves performance and longevity when compared to the cheaper resin gel coatings which can turn yellow and stiffen over time. Silicone glue dissipates heat more effectively which can become an issue especially if the LED strip tape is left on for longer periods of time.

    Soldered Connections

    As standard the LED tape you order will come with a 2 core cable for single colour strips. Each with a length of 150mm on the input side. If you would like soldered input tails or output connections we also offer this service which takes 3-5 days.

    Input cables can be ordered online or send us an email for anything complicated and we'll arrange everything for you. We charge £3 +VAT per solder.

    We also have a new range of solder-less connectors called Hippo connectors with versions available for use with most of our single colour LED tapes including IP20 and IP65 versions and connectors for COB tape here.

    Unsure of which LED Tape is Right for you?

    Contact us for advice at: [email protected] and we'll not only advise you on which type to use but can also recommend any other components you'll need such as LED drivers, connecting cables and controllers.

    Hi, I need 7.5 and 8 meters led strip light with the highest led per meter 24V, can you please point me which one I need
    Question by: Lidiya on 19 Apr 2022, 19:04
    If you want the brightest LED strip tape, it would be the 126 LEDs per metre version. Brightness is based on lumens and this is: 2770-3050 lumens per metre - which is very bright.

    If you want the most LEDs per metre which helps to reduce dotting effects, the COB version has 480 LEDs per metre, while it has almost 4 times the LEDs as the first option, its not as bright at 1650-2000 lumens per metre. This provides a seamless lighting effect and would be my recommendation.
    Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 20 Apr 2022, 06:06
    I wondered if this strip would be suitable for the top of a vanity unit in a bathroom. There is already low voltage lighting in place wired from the main light switch.
    Thank you
    Question by: Julie Tart on 20 May 2022, 12:47
    Yes, it would be fine for this application. The input voltage is 24V DC, you'd need to double check that your existing low voltage LED driver was suitable or fit a new LED driver.
    Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 21 May 2022, 08:00
    Hi, probably a daft question, but how is it powered? Does it need to be connected to the mains or is it battery? Thanks
    Question by: Becky on 16 Sep 2022, 08:00
    These tapes require a driver to power them, which connects to the mains. If you email your enquiry across to the sales email, a member of our team will give you a quote.
    Answer by: Mathew Smith (Admin) on 16 Sep 2022, 08:14
    Hi, daft question, but could you advice me the best products please? I have wall cabinets in my kitchen, ready for hardwired lights and wanted the colour changing strips - if I need 80cm, 180cm or 225cm lengths, how do I order please - do you supply in 'standard' kitchen cabinet sizes?
    Question by: Lynn Cooper on 20 Nov 2022, 20:24
    Yes, we can supply colour changing strips in bespoke lengths.

    Our standard RGB, colour changing in 24V has cut points every 10cm and is available here:

    You'll either need an input cable for each strip. Or you can have the first strip connected to an LED driver and controller, with the other strips connected in a row. You may also require cables between each.

    If you can email a sketch of your layout, we can provide a quotation with the LED driver and controller to: [email protected]
    Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 21 Nov 2022, 09:20
    When it says it can be cut down to the exact size, how exact can be? Thanks, Kevin
    Question by: Kevin Perrina on 12 Jan 2023, 18:14
    In the 'Specifications & Dimensions' dropdown tab it shows the dimensions for each version. COB has cut points at every 50mm.
