Start Specifying Light Tape®
With the Delegates gathering in Copenhagen, for the climate change summit it’s about time we started looking at little known alternative technologies like Electroluminescence that could have a massive positive effect if used properly.
We are constantly told by the media that CO2 output is warming up the planet yet we use display lighting that gobbles up power, Light Tape® uses 1/20th the power of Neon and Cold Cathode and 1/4 of the power of LED’s.
Light Pollution is not only making Starry Nights a distant memory it is having a major impact on Nocturnal insects and animals, Light Tape® produces light at a wavelength that can be seen up to 4 times further and at a fraction of the brightness of the incandescent systems causing light pollution, Light Tape® produces no infrared radiation and no ultraviolet emissions. Let’s light the venue not the sky.
We are poisoning our environment with the disposal of the chemicals, gas, glass and heavy metals used in the production of traditional lighting products, Light Tape® uses no glass, no gas and no heavy metals and is fully recyclable.
“Most lighting systems are designed around brightness, but it is becoming increasingly clear that brightness is not necessarily the optimum design point. Besides the problems associated with night vision, incandescent light systems consume large amounts of energy, produce heat are bulky and of lower reliability.”

Light Tape® uses less than one tenth of the power and is one third of the price of Neon and Cold Cathode display lighting, it is flexible, easier to install and maintain, reduces light pollution, produces no waste heat or infrared light, is fully recyclable, uses No Gas, No Glass and No Mercury.
Light Tape® with its wealth of benefits, versatility, ease of application, cost effectiveness and extremely low carbon footprint is fast becoming the chosen, viable alternative to more traditional forms of display lighting.
(1 Watt per Meter at 25mm (1”) wide, a 100m length of 25mm wide Light Tape® only uses the same power as a 100w light bulb).
What is Light Tape®?
Light Tape® is made up of a DuPont metal ribbon coated in Sylvania phosphor and encapsulated in a Honeywell laminate. Light Tape® has no glass, no gas, and no mercury/heavy metals and so is user and environment friendly. Light Tape® provides an 85% – 90% energy saving against other commercially available light sources such as Neon and Cold Cathode and due to its thinness (just 0.5mm thick, as thin as a business card) and being lightweight, affords inherent flexibility of use providing a neater, modern, space saving alterative that is easy to install with little to no maintenance and has a long working life.
