LightTape® & LightTapeUK

Discover more about revolutionary LightTape® Electroluminescent (EL) Lighting.

In 2005 LightTapeUK launched a revolutionary, cost-effective slim and flexible electroluminescent (EL) lighting strip system that operates from low amperage supplies to provide numerous applications for use in industrial and commercial areas. Uses range from directional strip lighting in fire and safety applications to automotive, architectural and entertainment applications, as well as animated advertising displays and backlighting graphics.

LightTape® itself is just 0.5mm thick (as thin as a business card) and lightweight affording inherent flexibility of use and with this and the thinner LightTape® light boxes, the weight of the system is considerably reduced making it easier and safer to handle. LightTape provides an 85% - 90% energy saving against other commercially available fluorescent light boxes and LightTape® is also the longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the world. It can be supplied in a range of colours and widths, with lengths of up to 300ft or more. By varying supply voltage and frequency, the brightness and hue of LightTape® can also be adjusted.

Driven by specially devised power supplies, it can be used in flashing or steady state modes in indoor or outdoor applications. The design of this state of the art product is both safe, there is no mercury incorporated in it, no glass to break or gas to escape, and is highly energy efficient too. A 25mm wide by 300ft long LightTape®, consumes less power than a 100W light bulb whilst also being at least twice the brightness of alternative EL technologies.

In outdoor illuminated signage applications LightTape® can be seen for miles. A NASA study for the Air Force on LightTape showed the technology easily visible from distances over five miles away. Notably, LightTape® penetrates fog, snow, haze and other normally poor visibility conditions. LightTape® is easy to install and requires virtually no maintenance compared to alternative lighting technologies and the flat, flexible, plastic lamp generates no heat and can be wrapped around corners." bend radius is just 2mm. And unlike fibre optics, LightTape® loves to be flashed sequentially or selectively which not only enhances applications but also significantly extends life. Multi-channel sequences and flashers are also available for use with LightTape®.

LightTape® is the most versatile light bulb ever developed! Patent protected LightTape® is the thinnest, longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the World. LightTape® is extremely light, flexible and very easy to install. We offer multiple colours, a variety of widths and lengths of 500 feet or longer.
