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 linking additional accessories and LED drivers to 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 of LED prices over the years, it's now affordable to everyone. Anything from smaller linear lengths for under cabinet lighting to rectangular shaped designs for cove lighting can be easily achieved.

We offer three different IP (International 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 IP65 as it offers more than adequate protection for the majority of applications. Coated with a silicone glue, IP65 LED tape has a sturdier design than IP20. The silicone glue coating improves performance and longevity when compared to resin gel coatings which can turn yellow and stiffen over time.

Choose between the industry standard three main colour temperatures of 2700K, 3000K, 4000K or colour changing known as RGB. Or we have RGB+WW and RGB+W these are essentially two LED strips combined with RGB and warm white or RGB and cool white. With these you can either mix the colours at the same time or have one or the other. We've found that RGB+WW works great in kitchens as you can use the RGB for mood lighting and switch to warm white for chopping and cooking.

Some new editions to our range are CCT LED tapes which are colour temperature adjustable. Containing both 2700K and 6500K LED chips in one row. Our premium CCT version has 120 LEDs per metre at 19.2W,  you don't have to compromise on light output and can have the best of both worlds. CCT LED tape allows you to quickly switch from a homely warm light to a clearer daylight colour and a mixture of everything in-between. Our other CCT version is RGB and CCT, this is a 5 in 1 LED chip that has red, green, blue, 2400K and 6500K giving everything and more. At 24W per metre it also offers a bright lighting effect. RGB+CCT LED tape provides mood lighting and ambient lighting in 1 neat strip.

We also offer our tapes in two different voltages of 12V or 24V DC. We recommend 12V for shorter runs and 24V for longer runs of over 5 metres. Some strip tapes are only available in one voltage and IP rating.

As part of our own LED Strip Fit brand of products we can supply LED tape made to measure to the lengths that are required and included soldered input cables or plug-in pins. This way no wastage is necessary and valuable time can be saved on site.

Unsure of which LED Tape is Right for you? 

Contact us for advice at: sales@downlights.co.uk 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 which are needed for RGB tape. We also have some further information at the bottom of the page.

Soldered Connections

As standard the LED tape you order will come with a 2 core cable for single colour strips, 3 wires for CCT, a 4 pin female connector for RGB (this can be snipped off to leave you with bare wires), 5 bare wires for RGB+W and RGB+WW and 6 wires for RGB+CCT. Each with a length of 150mm on the input side. If you would like soldered input tails, or output connections we can offer this service. Input cables can be ordered online or give us a call or email us 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 IP20 or IP65 LED tapes.

Which LED Tape?

If you want to achieve a subtle background lighting effect we recommend the 30 LEDs (7.2W) per metre version. This has got gaps of 33mm between each LED.

Our most popular choice is the 60 LEDs per metre version which offers continuous bright light effect similar to a fluorescent tube. This versions has a lumen output of up to 1080 lumens per metre. This twice the amount of LEDs and is twice as bright with gaps of 16.5mm between each LED.

For external lighting applications we recommend our IP68 rated LED tape which is fully encapsulated. This version isn't self adhesive, it's supplied with mounting clips.

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 select RGB. RGB is a full colour changing strip which requires an additional controller to change the colours with. You either select a primary colour or mix them to create an almost endless array of different colours. The colour white can be selected but it is more of an off-white with a really high kelvin rating of around 7000K

RGB+WW is a mixture of colour changing LED tape and warm white all in one or RGB+W has a cool white strip instead. You can either select or mix any of the colours just like RGB or you can select the white colour temperature when you need to see more clearly what you're doing, ideal for cooking etc.

The key selling feature of this version is mixing the primary colours with warm or cool white which produce some unique orange and pink colours. This version is supplied with mounting clips and isn't self adhesive.


Lumens (brightness)

  • 30 LEDs Per Metre SMD2835 produces 480 to 540 lumens per metre.
  • Single colour 60 LEDs Per Metre SMD2835 produces 1068 to 1160 lumens per metre.
  • RGB 60 LEDs Per Metre SMD5060 produces 960 lumens per metre.
  • RGB 96 LEDs per Metre SMD5060 produces 1056 lumens per metre.
  • RGBW & RGBWW 96 LEDs per Metre SMD5060+SMD2835 produces a total of 1400 lumens per metre.
  • CCT LED tape produces 1310 to 1610 lumens per metre. Requires either a basic RF controller or multi-zone controller with receiver.
  • RGB+CCT LED tape produces 1130 lumens per metre. Requires a special 6 wire receiver (SR-1009EA-5C) and remote control (SR-2858Z4-5C).

Wattage Consumption & LED Driver Loading

  • The low output with 30 LEDs per metre version is 7.2 watts per metre.
  • The standard output with 60 LEDs per metre version is 14.4 watts per metre. This also includes the 60 LEDs per metre RGB tape.
  • The CCT adjustable LED tape with 120 LEDs per metre is 19.2 watts per metre.
  • The high output RGB with 96 LEDs per metre, RGBW and RGBWW tapes are 23 watts per metre.
  • The RGB+CCT LED tape with 60 LEDs per metre is 24 watts per metre.

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 be the same as the LED driver. If the LED tape is 12V, the LED driver must be 12V.

2. The wattage rating of the LED driver must be big enough to carry the full load of the LED tape or tapes that you’re connected 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 LED compatible dimmer switch. Colour changing and colour temperature adjustable LED tapes require a non dimmable driver, dimming is done by a controller.

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.

Used to illuminate a display cabinet, the tape sticks really well. I fitted two 1500mm long strips on the back of the door frame facing into the cabinet. The result was great a bit bright so fitted a dimmer, probably should have used 30 LEDs per metre rather than 60, but still very pleased !

The worst feature was the lack of instructions with the product. Some were on the website, and some were gleaned from e-mail contact. All was resolved in the end, but detailed instructions on paper would have been v. helpful to an ageing DIYer with poor eyesight!
