15 Watt Red LED Tape

5050 SMD, 60 LEDs per metre
Commercial Grade

Availability: In Stock for next day delivery

InStyle LED’s 15-watt red LED tape is a thin and very flexible light source, producing a smooth effect when shone onto any surface. With 60 branded 5050 SMDs per metre, our 15w tape is three times as bright as our standard 5w tape – which makes it perfect for general lighting, high-powered lighting features, or in locations with strong ambient lighting.

Our 15w single-colour LED tapes actually pull around 14.4w per metre – enough to offer the output you need for bars, restaurants, hotels, signage, exhibitions etc. We supply our bright red strip lighting in 5m reels as standard (with cut-points every 100mm for trimming and joining), or our cutting and soldering service can deliver your order pre-cut to the correct lengths for your project, no matter how large or small.

InStyle stocks the following LED tape colours as standard: Red / Green / Blue / Amber / Pink / Orange. We often have other shades in stock, and we can manufacture to meet specific requirements on request.

We supply commercial grade LED tape using premium components, with consistent colour batching, and which can also be supplied with an IP67 rating – ideal for exterior projects, in bathrooms, and any location where resistance to water is required.

If you need to install dimming for your LED tape, we’ll offer a range of options – wireless, DMX, Triac, 0-10v and others.

To work out what transformer you require this is quite simple. You take the amount of LED tape you have in metres and x this by the wattage of the LED tape you have, again per metre.

For example 11m of 14.4w LED tape: 11 x 14.4w = 158.4w Therefore you would require a 200w transformer.

For more information, see our support page on LED power supplies and their output.

For this type of LED tape you will require just a transformer to get this working. You connect the 2 core starter lead coming out of one end. This is then wired to the transformer, red wire goes to + and the black wire is wired to -. The 2 core cable can be extended as required for you to mount the transformer as far away as required.

For more information, choose one of these links for support and advice on how to install either simple or larger LED tape projects.

LED strips are designed to be very flexible. Their PCBs (printed circuit boards) are so robust that many LED tape products can be bent up to 90 degrees with no difficulty.

Be aware that higher-power LED strips are less flexible than lower-power ones. This is because the LED modules are placed closer together on high-power strips, and require wider PCBs (for more heat dispersal).

For more info and examples, check out our support page.

Deciding on which wattage you require is all down to what kind of application you are fitting the LED tape in.

The 5w and 10w is ideal to be used as feature lighting. Lighting to highlight areas, as a secondary lighting. Ideal for covings, drop down ceilings signage etc. to give a smooth halo effect. The 10w would be preferred to the 5w for these applications if there is a high amount of ambient lighting.

The 15w and 20w is ideal to be used as general lighting or as feature lighting for areas larger than covings etc. For example washing down front bars / back bars / under kitchen cabinet lighting as ‘working light’

For more information, see our support page discussing how bright your LED tape needs to be.

IP67 Heat-shrink type is required in areas where you will need resistance to water. For example bathrooms, kitchens and exterior. The heatshrink version is waterproof but it cannot be submersed, for example in a pond. The IP67 Heat-shrink is a protective coating over the LED tape, this makes it easy to wipe to clean etc.

For more information, see our support page describing the waterproof LED strip light options we offer.

All the LED strips are cuttable. Each can be cut at various points, either 50mm,100mm,150mm or 200mm depending on whitch wattage version you have. We can either cut the lengths to your specific lengths as required or you can do this yourself. Once cut to length to join this to a transformer or another piece you will need to be capable of soldering, or if not we also supply 2 types of clips. One type is a starter lead clip, which is s clip that joins onto the off cut and has a cable coming out of it. The other clip is a ‘tape to tape clip’, this clip joins 2 pieces together.

For more information, see these links offering advice and support on cutting and soldering your LED tape, or using clip-on connectors to extend your tape’s length.

InStyle LED manufacture and supply commercial-grade LED strip lights – which means our products are high quality and built to last, using only premium components and branded LEDs:

  • Brighter LEDs
  • Vibrant and consistent colours
  • Accurate life expectancy
  • Sturdy PCBs
  • Excellent resistor management
