Determining the Best LED Strip Lights
LED light strips and ribbons are some of the popular LED products that are available to consumers. These LEDs have replaced incandescent ribbons and fluorescent tubes. These products have also created endless options for advertising and decorating public places such as office buildings, bars, and hotels. LED technology has advanced a lot and is still advancing, the new lights are very bright and have a long life span, they work great for ascent lights and have even been able to be used as a main lighting source. This article will help consumer know what characteristics they should look into when wanting to get strip lights for home or commercial use.
There will be some features that the user will need to consider when making their decision. The user will need to know the size and type of LED they want on their light strip as well as the color, flexibility, and rating of the strip. The size and type of LED is the most important determining factor as this play into the brightness and performance of your LED light strip. It should go without saying that the new the technology and the bigger the size the bright your LED strip will be.
Another key factor for the performance is the number of LEDs in the strip. The larger the number the brighter the strip, but a very high number of LEDs will require different technology, this will usually be done in a double strip where the lights will be placed in multiple rows instead of in a straight line. If you are interested in a multi width strip you will need to make sure that the lights are not too close to each other as this could result in a shorter lifespan.
The color you can reach with LEDs is seemingly endless, this is because they use RGB techniques. With these lights you can even get three different shades of white, you can get a bright white, a warm white and a natural white. You can get LED lights in almost any single color but with an RGB light strip you will be able to produce any color you wish. You will need a controller in order to change the lights, this will also allow you to program the lights if you want them to do a pattern or automatically change through an event.
The application of a LED strip will really rely on how flexible it is. Rigid strips might be best for replacing tube lights but a flexible strip can do anything. Walls and ceilings might call for a rigid strip but angles will require something more flexible.
