Light Tape® is an energy efficient and versatile light bulb consisting of Electroluminescence. The light emitting phosphors are located between two electrically conductive plates. Applying an alternating (A.C.) current activates the system producing light. At least one of the electrodes consists of a light transmissive conductive material allowing the light to escape. The technology is basically a flat flexible plastic lamp that does not contain gasses, filaments, mercury or glass. It is extremely visible through smoke without t producing a glare. Light tape is cool to touch and meets UL as well as other agency safety requirements.
It is available in custom lengths as well as by the roll. Flexible enough to wrap around corners or uneven surfaces, just connect and run. For indoor installations, simply use a clear overlay or double sided tape. Or try our outdoor mounting systems for exterior applications.
One hundred meters of standard 1″ Light Tape® lamp consumes less than a 100 watt light bulb Light Tape® is the most energy efficient form of lighting available today. Typical energy consumption is less than 0.25 ma/ sq. in
Light Tape® backlighting systems uniformly backlight onyx, engineered materials and signage. Fits in almost any space at less than 0.02″ thick! No more hot or dark spots and does not generate heat.
