LED Strip Lights

What are Striplights?

LED striplights are a long and thin a series of small LEDs on a tape that can be used to highlight, decorate and add visibility to many settings like parties, events, weddings, bars, shop windows and domestic areas like the kitchen. These lights come in waterproof and non-waterproof options and can be stuck virtually anywhere thanks to a 3M adhesive backing on their underside. The lights run along a narrow circuit board in a 5m roll. Biard Strip Lights are available in 8mm (3528) or 10mm (5050). 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.


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 Strip Lighting is available in IP20, IP65 and IP67:

IP20 - Gives protection against a solid object greater than 12.5mm (such as a finger) but gives no protection against water. IP20 Strip Light is most suitable for indoor use in areas that are not exposed to water, e.g. under kitchen cabinets, in bedrooms, dining areas etc.


IP65 - Gives protection against dust and is water resistant against water jets from any angle. IP65 Strip Light is most suitable for; bathrooms e.g. around a mirror or cabinet, in outdoor areas e.g. under decking or around a shed, and also kitchens in areas exposed to water.


IP67 - Gives protection against dust and can be submerged in water (up to 1m). IP67 Strip Light is most suitable for bathrooms or outdoor use e.g. in a pond or swimming pool.
