LED Strip Lighting
What is LED Strip Lighting?
An LED strip light is a flexible circuit board populated with LED bulbs. When viewed from afar, it creates the illusion of a single strip of continuous lights. These fixtures can be placed anywhere, and come in standard and water resistant models.
Why go for LED Strip Lighting?
Efficient & Cost-Effective
According to the Australian government’s Environment and Energy Department, LEDs are 4 to 7 times more efficient than the typical incandescent or traditional halogen bulbs. LEDs also last 5 to 10 times longer than a halogen bulb, and can have a lifetime of up to 50,000 hours. Although LEDs can be more expensive to buy, they are overall cheaper when considering the energy use cost in the long run.
Because the LEDs are mounted on long, flexible strips, they can be used in a variety of applications. They bend easily, allowing you to add light to locations that are often hard to illuminate properly.
Easy to install
LED strip lighting is relatively easy to install and requires very few additional materials. This makes it a quick and affordable upgrade that can instantly change the appearance of your home.
Because they are thin, LED strips can be installed in many tight spaces and can be easily hidden from view, leaving just the light to brighten and beautify your space.
You can cut the LED strip to length, which means you are not bound by space requirements for your lighting. You can also choose from a variety of single colours or even colour changing options. Speak to us and let us know what you need!
How can you use LED Strip Lighting?
LED strip lighting is great for residential, commercial and public applications. For residential projects, LED strips can be used both inside and outside the home. For within the home, you can put it behind bathroom mirrors to provide better lighting when checking your reflection, or you can choose to place them within alcoves in the wall to create a relaxing atmosphere.
Some homeowners choose to use LED strips as accent pieces as well – for instance, to brighten the space between cabinet tops and the ceiling. LED lighting can also function as a beautiful backlight for bookshelves and cabinets.
What about the outdoors? LED strip lighting can improve visibility with style when placed along the outer edges of patios and decking. It is also a good option for multi-level decks, balconies and patios, allowing you to illuminate areas around your house without hanging a single fixture.
When placed along the underside of step risers, LED strips can create safer walking conditions too.
You can also choose to change the ambience in your garden by going with different coloured LED lights. These work especially well with water features.
When it comes to commercial and public areas, LED strips can help make signage more easily visible after dark. Adding them to hand rails and walkways improve visibility and safety. Retail stores can benefit from the beauty of LED strip lighting when used for product or storefront displays, while offices can use them as accents on walls.
RGB LED Strip Lighting
RGB LEDs basically means red, green and blue LEDs. These three colours can be combined to produce more than 16 million hues of light, giving you the chance to have different colours without changing the light. However, do note that some colours like brown or pink, are difficult or even impossible, to achieve with the red, green and blue combination.
Instead of a single fixed colour LED strip, RGB LEDs can be used to add a splash of colour. They make great decoration lights, so you can use them to beautify your home, to make your outdoor areas more interesting, or to spice up your stores.
It is ideal for accent lighting of kitchens, shelves, stairs, walls, and other locations around your home and business premises.
