5 Watt Colour LED Tape

3528 SMD, 60 LED’s Per Metre
Commercial Grade

Availability: In Stock for next day delivery

Thin and flexible, InStyle’s 5-watt single colour LED tape is just 8mm wide and 3mm in depth. This versatile light source has 60 branded 3528 SMDs to every metre, which will give you a smooth effect when shone onto any surface.

Our 5w LED tape actually pulls 4.8w per metre… and is ideal for use as feature lighting in bars, restaurants, hotels, covings, domestic settings and much more. All of our LED tape lines are available in standard 5m reels, with cut-points every 50mm for trimming and joining. Alternatively, we at InStyle LED can supply your LED tape ready cut, to the exact lengths your project requires – no matter how large or small.

Instyle stocks the following LED tape colours as standard: Red / Green / Blue / Amber. 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, built to last with consistent colour batching (our 5w colour LED tape has a life over 50,000 hours), and is also available with an IP67 rating – which can be used 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 7m of 4.8w LED tape: 7 x 4.8w = 33.6w Therefore you would require a 60w 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.

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

Find out more on our ‘commercial-grade LED’ support page.

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 which 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.

If you’ve ordered your LED tapes cut to custom lengths from us, with all the starter-leads and flexible leads for corners that your project requires, then you’ve most likely got everything you need already!

Cinema Room Coving

I used the blue LED Tape for coving around a cinema room. I was indecisive on whether to have the 15w or the 5w. It turns out the 5w was a lot brighter than I thought and it was perfect for the job

Bright Red LED Tape

I purchased 8m of the Red LED tape to use on a exhibition. The LED tape was supplied by InStyle in 2 x 4m lengths to avoid voltage drop and they came complete with starter leads to the lengths that I had requested. I powered both strips off of one 60w transformer. The LED tape was very bright and the job looked great. I will send in some photos
