What are LED Strip Lights?
LED Strips are a thin series of small LEDs on a length of adhesive backed tape. They can be used to highlight and decorate many settings such as parties, special events, bars, shop windows and domestic areas like the kitchen. They are flexible enough to fit anywhere, whether underneath kitchen cupboard or curved round the edge of a pond. LED Strip Lights come in waterproof and non-waterproof options and can be stuck virtually anywhere thanks to the 3M adhesive backing.
The LED Strip Lights run along a narrow circuit board in a 5m roll. Biard LED Strip Lights are available in either 8mm (3528) or 10mm (5050) widths. Where specified on the strip, the lights can be cut with scissors into smaller lengths (at every 50mm interval), if the standard 5m roll is found to be too large.
Like all LED products, LED Strip Lights are energy efficient and cost-effective meaning a simple switch to LED can significantly lower your energy bills. They are extremely easy to install due to the adhesive backing, once cut, simply stick to the desired location. LED Strip Lights can also be extended with the use of a connector. Connectors come in a variety of shapes such as X shapes, T shapes, L shapes and straight connectors, meaning there is no limit to possibilities.
LED Strip Lights come in a variety of colours such as cool white, warm white and RGB. RGB LED Strip Lights are perfect as mood lighting as they can be changed via a remote control to create a flawless aesthetic in any colour. With the right IP rating you can transform the atmosphere of any indoor or outdoor space at the push of a button.
About IP Rating
IP stands for "Ingress Protection" which gives a measure of the level of protection an item has against solid objects (e.g.dust & dirt) and liquids. The first number refers to the protection against solids and the second number refers to the protection against liquids, the higher the number, the greater the level of protection. Biard LED Strip Lights available in IP20, IP65 and IP67:
