With the world of lighting having so many choices nowadays, we have bought you this handy guide to help you when looking at strip lighting and where to use them.

What are strip lights?

LED strip lighting is a flexible circuit board populated by surface mounted light-emitting diodes (SMD LEDs) and other components that comes with either a profile or self adhesive tape.

Strip lights are an ideal way of adding extra layers of concealed light to a project.
