Rope and LED tape lights are perfect for residential as well as party or event lighting.
They are also a cost-effective solution and easy to install yourself. At Louie Lighting, we have a wide selection of rope and LED tape lights to choose from. Our assortment includes a plethora of color selections, color temperatures, and voltage options. We also provide end caps, power cords and other accessories to help you complete your lighting project. We provide transformers for low voltage items as well.
Rope Lights are perfect for accent lighting. They can add whimsy to your deck to adding a warm, inviting glow to a restaurant seating area. Before installing a rope light, consider the location you need to use the lighting. They can be tricky to install into tight spaces, like sharp corners as they cannot be bent to a 90 degree angle without damaging their wires. They are still incredibly versatile since they are available in 12-volt, 24-volt, and 120-voltage. They are also sold in both LED and incandescent light sources, giving you the freedom to fashion almost any lighting scheme you can think up. Rope lights also generate a sufficient amount of heat so one must be careful of where the lights are placed.
Tape Lights are also sometimes called LED strip lights or Flexilights. Their shape has a few advantages. They are more flexible than rope lights, and fit into tighter spaces with ease. They are incredibly easy to install – just peel off the adhesive backing and you’re done. What’s more, LED tape lights are often less expensive than rope lights and are available in many colors, including RGB color changing tape light. The lights can be cut in sections and should have an indicator on them regarding where they can be cut. Be aware when you cut the light in sections, note that each cut section requires its own power source and connector to work properly.
