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.

  • 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 or 4000K cool white. 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 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 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 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 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 60 LEDs per metre SMD2835 produces 1068 to 1160 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 1650-1865 lumens per metre. This LED tape will one day become the industry standard.

    Wattage Consumption & LED Driver Loading

    • Standard output with 60 LEDs per metre version is 14.4 watts per metre. This also includes the 60 LEDs per metre RGB tape.
    • High output with 126 LEDs per metre version is 26 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 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 8 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. Its coated with a silicone glue that provides a sturdier design than IP20.

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