Benefits of LED Strip Lighting for Commercial Applications

LED strip lighting is one of the more popular lighting systems today, as it is highly efficient and suitable for both residential and commercial uses.

When used the right way, LED strip lighting not only functions well as high-grade task lighting, but can also be used to provide better ambience during events or as innovative decor solutions for work and retail environments.

Here are some of the benefits of using LED strip lighting for commercial applications:


Cost savings

According to the Environment and Energy Department in Australia, LEDs can be as much as 7 times more efficient than the typical incandescent or traditional halogen bulbs. This means lower power consumption, which translates to lower energy costs. LEDs can also last at least 5 times longer than a halogen bulb, and you won’t need to replace it for at least 5 years.


Lots of variety to choose from

LED strips are available in a wide range of colours, tones, colour temperature and brightness. Depending on your project requirement, you can choose to have LED strip lights in warm white or cool white, fixed single colour or multi colour strips, as well as in various levels of lumens.


Waterproof and safe

Silicon waterproof LED strip lights can resist rain and water splashes, and therefore can be used in wet or outdoor environments including kitchens, bathrooms, patios and pool areas. LED lights are also eco-friendly, as they are free from harmful chemicals. Unlike compact fluorescent lamps or CFL bulbs, LED lights do not require special precautions when disposing of them, and are recyclable.


Quick warm up time

At the flip of a switch, LED lights illuminate quickly and brightly, unlike traditional incandescent lights which may take a few moments before reaching their full brightness. This is great for offices and factories, as employees can get to work immediately instead of having to wait for the lights to come on slowly.



LED strips are very thin and can bend easily, making it easy to install in tight locations that are otherwise difficult to illuminate. Because they are so thin, you can also choose to display the LED strips as decor or hide them from view.


Fully customisable

With LED strip lighting, you get to have full control over your lighting solution. You can cut the LED strip to length according to your space requirements, specify the colours and brightness, and choose from different types of housing.

When it comes to LED strips, there is no one-size-fit-all solution - different projects and applications require different types of LED strips. Let us know what you need, and we will be able to customise your LED strip lighting to your exact requirements.
