In the past, trying to add illumination to your bookshelves would have been a major project, not to mention a potential headache. For one thing, shelving offers very limited space in which to fit lighting such as fluorescent tubes or light bulbs. And secondly, the heat generated from traditional bulbs or florescent tubes could actually damage your books – or could even be a fire hazard!
That’s the reason why most bookshelves have remained unlit until now, and are fast becoming outdated and unattractive.
But now there’s a game-changer. With the advent of LED tape, the old restrictions and limitations are gone…..
What makes LED tape ideal for lighting up your bookshelf?
LED tapes use approx 90% less energy than traditional filament based light sources. So LED tape not only helps the environment by reducing your carbon footprint – it will also save you money on its running costs.
In fact, some LED tapes draw as little as 4.8w per metre – yet still kick out a powerful 360 lumens per metre.
A commercial-grade LED tape will give over 70,000 hours of life expectancy, and will still be outputting 70% of its original brightness even after all that time. This means LED tape is an ideal fit-and-forget product, with no maintenance and no replacement costs for many years!
