  • Features

    Our new and improved outdoor LED strip tape is rated at IP68 and is fully water and dust resistant. Fully encapsulated inside a silicone tube, it's ideal for use externally and can even be submersed under water up to 3 metres. The silicone tube also provides more protection for the arduous outdoor conditions.

    Available in 3 popular single colour temperatures of 2700K extra warm white, 3000K warm white and 4000K cool white. It is also available in RGB colour changing as well as our new IP68 RGBW and RGBWW strips. RGBW LED tape is a combination of RGB colour changing and a dedicated 4000K LED chip in the same row of LED chips. This offers colour changing effects and a true cool white in one neat LED strip. The RGBWW version contains a dedicated 3000K LED chip. These types of LED tapes are becoming increasingly popular as they provide superior mood lighting effects and proper white light.

    Another key feature of our outdoor LED strip tape is that it has high CRI LED chips, with a CRI90 rating they reproduce colours more effectively and produce a superior quality of light. This is made possible with our premium COB Epistar LED chips.

    As part of our own LED Strip Fit brand of products we can supply outdoor LED tape in bespoke made to measure to the lengths that you require, including soldered input cables. This way no wastage is necessary and valuable time can be saved on site. Please note that no push on connectors are available for this range and the total meterage ordered online will be sent as a single length up to 10M. If you wish to cut this into multiple lengths then you would be required to solder a new connection onto the tape and seal it accordingly.

    Wattage Consumption & LED Driver Loading

    • The COB version with 480 LEDs per metre version is 15 watts per metre.
    • The high output RGB with 96 LEDs per metre RGBW and RGBWW tapes are 23 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 24V the LED driver must be 24V.

    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%, so 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 as the dimming is done by a controller.

    4. If in doubt please contact us with your requirements and we'll get back to you quickly and answer any other questions you have.

    Product Questions & Answers

    Set Descending Direction
    Please can you tell me if your outdoor led strip tape can be used in conjunction with a PIR as I would like to use it around my garage soffits.
    Regards Neil
    Question by: Neil on 18 Jun 2022, 14:52
    Yes, a PIR would switch the LED driver rather than the LED tape, so you wouldn't have any compatibility issues.
    Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 20 Jun 2022, 10:03
    Could this be used in a saltwater pool?
    Question by: Callum on 19 Jul 2022, 23:06
    I've double checked this, but no it can't unfortunately.
    Answer by: Chris Horridge (Admin) on 21 Jul 2022, 10:40
    I recently bought this led strip light and need to cut, reconnect and also extend what connectors are available for this range/type of ip68 led strip
    Question by: Andy Swift on 3 Apr 2023, 22:35
    The only way of doing this would be to solder a cable to the cut piece, reseal and heatshrink.
    Answer by: Mathew Smith (Admin) on 4 Apr 2023, 11:15
