With a white LED added to the red, green and blue (RGB) LEDs, this tape lighting represents a new development in color-customizable LED lighting.
Before, the only way to get a white light with color-adjustable tape lights was by setting the three colors to maximum intensity, resulting in a slightly muddled white light. The addition of a white LED lets you switch to a clean, soft 3000K white light which can be adjusted for brightness. The white light can also be mixed with colors to increase the range of adjustment; by adjusting the level of each base color (much like mixing paint) you can set the lighting to almost any color, including pastel tones and variations of white.
The 60 LEDs per metre (18 LEDs per foot) density is a good all-around solution for accent lighting and lower brightness task lighting such as under cabinets and in toe-kick areas. Its greater LED density provides brighter illumination and a more seamless glow.
Ordering by the foot is an economical option when you want to install a lot of lighting with minimal splicing, or for adding a short length of lighting to a kit. For an example of the latter, if you need 10' of lighting, instead of buying two 8' kits, order one 8' kit plus another 2' of lighting and use a splice connector to join the light strips. It can also be cut to length at markings on the copper pads spaced 4" apart.
The lighting is CSA listed to UL standard 8750 and come with a 3-year warranty. Rated for 65,000 hours of continuous use, the LED tape lights use 24-volt low-voltage power, making them exceptionally energy efficient. The lighting requires a 24VDC power supply with enough wattage to suit the intended application, some wiring and a color controller, all available separately. While not required, you may want to add an on/off switch. We also offer channels and diffusers, for more refined installations.
These lights are not compatible with our 12V LED lighting system.
