The Light Tape® product offers practical, economical decorative solutions for use in many aspects of Interior and exterior architectural lighting design and more. Snap-N-Light application and LumaGrip™ stair nosing products feature as prime examples of the more obvious uses of Light Tape®, but Light Tape® can also provide alternative lighting solutions for use in architecture and interior design but also for:  Exhibitions, events, point of sale, hotels, bars, restaurants, safety clothing, emergency egress and health and safety.

LumaGrip™ – Illuminated stair nosings have been available for many years but they have always been bulky, complicated, high maintenance and expensive. LumaGrip™ is set to change this with a range of illuminated Anti-Slip Nosing’s that replace existing aluminium and PVC nosing’s. LumaGrip™ also comes with the added benefits of having a higher anti-slip rating and a glare free illumination for both indoor and outdoor applications.

The DDA (Disability Discrimination Act) has recently been updated to provide extra protection for the partially sighted, putting emphasis on both the illumination of stairs and making columns and pillars in public areas more visually apparent. Light Tape can assist in both these areas with cost effective simple solutions.

What is Light Tape?

Light Tape® is made up of 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 per cent energy saving against other commercially available light sources such as neon and cold cathode.

Light Tape uses 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. Due to its ultra-thin profile of less than 1mm Light Tape® provides a neater, modern, space saving alternative that is easy to install with little to no maintenance and has a long working life of up to 40,000 hours.

Snap-N-Light – is the easy-to-install display lighting system for building decoration applications.

Snap-N-Light is the perfect solution for fixing the Light Tape® in place and providing protection from the elements. It is extremely user friendly and consists of mounting clips and Light Tape® already encased in clear plastic extrusion, wired and ready for installation providing an IP67 rating coupled with an ultra low carbon footprint.

LumaGrip™ uses Light Tape’s patented electroluminescent technology that is illuminated without glare and can be seen when going both up and down the stairs.

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.
