Light Tape® Improves Night Safety for Road and Rail Workers

Reflective strips on high visibility jackets and clothing are useful in providing some protection for workers who work at night or in low visibility weather, but the material relies on its interaction with external and/or vehicle lights to be effective.

Our New Glo-Pro Range of Safety Clothing uses Light Tape® as an extra safety feature so even in dark, misty conditions the wearer can be seen for distances over 1 mile when the Light Tape® strip is lit.

Light Tape® Hotel Dive Bahrain

2 inch wide Rich Red Light Tape® was installed in Snap-N-Lite for Hotel Diva in Bahrain, providing a solid state lamp which uses less than 1/4 the power of LED and 1/28th the power of traditional Neon lighting coupled with greatly improved reliability.

Light Tape® New Improved 9V Battery Pack

New improved 9V driver has fixed permanent direct connection. The jack plug connection on the Light Tape® 9V driver has been changed to a more robust direct connection, the old jack plug was very small making it easy to damage if not handled carefully. Electro-LuminX proactively made the change in line with it’s ongoing product improvement program.

The new 9V driver is available on the samples link on our web page:

Light Tape® on Benton Metro Footbridge Newcastle Upon Tyne

Benton Metro Station is on the Tyne and Wear Metro Yellow line between Four Lane Ends and Palmersville. A former railway station, it retains many of the original station buildings. The Station serves Benton in North Tyneside just north of Newcastle Upon Tyne, in the North East of England.

During 2011 Benton Metro Station Footbridge was upgraded to give better disabled access, providing lift access to both platforms.

Light Tape® has been used to create a modern display lighting effect to both lift shafts and the main bridge walkway.

Electro-LuminX Lighting Corporation has spent nearly 20 years developing and refining their patent-protected Light Tape electroluminescent lighting technology. Recently, the product was an integral part of a striking national billboard campaign led by MetroMedia Technologies (MMT) to launch the new Jeep Call of Duty MW3 Edition vehicle.

The campaign was released in conjunction with the Modern Warfare 3 video game that debuted November 2011. Billboards were unveiled in Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles, becoming the largest fully backlit electroluminescent billboard campaign to date.  

The creative artwork for the Jeep campaign featured a unique day-to-night advertisement created by MMT. During the day, the Call of Duty Jeep is depicted driving across a rocky desert valley. But as the sun goes down and the Light Tape comes to life: a helicopter appears in the sky, a rock turns into a crushed vehicle, and the “Sunday Drive” turns into a battle scene. Weeks in preparation and a team of visionaries made this transformation possible.

Roughly 2000 square feet of Light Tape EL uniformly backlight the three billboards. A new patent-pending process enabled the standard billboards to be retrofitted with the lightweight, energy-efficient backlighting in a matter of hours, not days.

What is Light Tape®?

Light Tape® uses less than one twentieth of the power and is half 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 and is fully recyclable, uses No Gas, No Glass and No Mercury.

Light Tape® is the longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the world. It can be supplied in a range of colours and widths, in lengths up to 100m. Driven by specially devised power supplies, it can be used in flashing or steady state modes in indoor or outdoor applications. The design is safe with no mercury, no glass to break or gas to escape and it’s highly energy efficient too. In application, it is easy to install, requiring virtually no maintenance compared to alternative lighting technologies.

About mikeltukl
About Light Tape Light Tape UK Ltd have launched a revolutionary, cost-effective slim and flexible electroluminescent 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 advertising displays and graphic display light boxes. It can even replace neon signage, notably for graphic display light boxes, where Light Tape enables greatly reduced box thickness to just 12mm, a huge reduction on other commercially available florescent light signage systems, which are 40mm thick. Light tape 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 Light Tape light boxes, the weight of the system is considerably reduced making it easier and safer to handle. Light tape provides an 85% - 90% energy saving against other commercially available florescent light boxes and Light Tape 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 Light Tape 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 Light Tape, 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 Light Tape can be seen for miles. A NASA study for the Air Force on Light Tape showed the technology easily visible from distances over five miles away. Notably Light Tape penetrates fog, snow, haze and other normally poor visibility conditions. Light Tape 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 fiber optics, Light Tape 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 Light Tape. Light Tape is the most versatile light bulb ever developed! Patent protected Light Tape is the thinnest, longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the World. Light Tape is extremely light, flexible and very easy to install. We offer multiple colors, a variety of widths and lengths of 100m or longer.
