New COB Tape Lights and 5 Ways to Use Them

radialux 4.2 cob tape light by alloy led

You’re probably thinking about new ways to spice up your environment using LED tape lights.

Many of our favorite projects make use of this technology, providing a beautiful, updated aesthetic.

We assure you that you are making the RIGHT CHOICE!

Why Should You Try Tape Lighting?

A tape light is a cluster of Light Emitting Diode (LED) lights that are lined up on an adhesive strip of circuit board.

The adhesive makes it an easy option for lighting up tight spaces to add a subtle design with dramatic results.

You can truly customize the design and installation process, expanding the boundaries of traditional light fixtures with tape lighting.

This technology is flexible and practical… exactly what you want your space to be!

5 Ways We Love Using Tape Light:

#1 Stairways and Pathways

Lining your stairways and tricky pathways with a good tape light is a great safety measure.

Illuminating your walkway can be especially helpful in areas that are hard to navigate for young children, older adults, and people with disabilities.

#2 Shelves, Cabinets, and Toe-Kicks

From Michelin star dining to a home cooked meal, a high-quality tape light can come in handy for illuminating dimly lit cabinets and shelves in kitchen or storage spaces.

Make it easier to search for what you need right when you need it.

#3 Retail and Dining Establishments

Tape lights are a favorite of restaurants and lounge owners as they’re a good way to add artistic flair and color to the scene.

Liekwise, shopping malls and stand-alone showrooms benefit from LED tape lights to create a specific mood that suits the theme of the store.

These businesses can also use the lighting to highlight products or menus within their spaces.

#4 Home Interiors

You can also use a tape light for home improvement projects in your own space.

Whether you’re remodeling the kitchen or designing a custom walk-in closet, a tape light will surely complete the vision for your home oasis.

BONUS: You can even use them for home theater set-ups since they’re very easy to attach!

#5 Architectural Design

In the service industry, you may want to create a space that reflects your style, and with a little creativity from a lighting designer, you can add tape lighting as a design element that features your creativity as a professional.

Corporate offices often make the choice to use discrete ambient lighting incorporating the building architecture to invite clients into the work space atmosphere.

What Kind of Tape Light Do I Need?

Marvel Lighting has a vast selection of Tape Light, Channels, and Accessories.

Exterior applications will require a wet-location rating and strong connections. Interior tape light may also need to be high output for high ceilings or side output depending on the application. Consider whether you need ambient or task lighting, or whether you’d like to maximize the design of your tape lighting to do both.

Dimmable or non-dimmable drivers will determine the luminosity of your tape lighting. Be mindful, too, of load maximums, voltage, and electrical specifications that you can find on each product listing.
