Side-Emitting LED Tape

335 SMD, 60 LEDs Per Metre
Commercial Grade

Availability: In Stock for next day delivery

InStyle LED’s side-emitting LED tape uses diodes that are differently shaped to the ones found on our standard LED tapes. They’re designed to shine sideways across the PCB, rather than directly up and out, which makes this specialised LED tape perfect for use in curved areas or for curved plinth lighting.

Our side-emitting LED tape is available in a choice of whites as standard – warm white or pure white. Or we can manufacture your order to the specific shade (Kelvin value) of white that you require.

Side-emitting LED tape is supplied with 3M self-adhesive backing for easy installation, and uses 335 SMDs. It’s also available in an IP67-rated version, for projects that require resistance to water.

Like all of our strip lighting range, InStyle LED’s side-emitting white LED tape is available in standard 5m reels and can be cut to the nearest 50mm. If you need something larger or smaller, we can cut your order to the length you need.

InStyle LED supplies commercial grade LED tape using premium components, built to last and always with consistent colour batching.  If you wish to dim your LED tape, InStyle can offer the accessories you need, including DMX controllers and receivers, TRIAC (mains) dimming, 0-10v dimmers, and more.

FAQs

When looking to use white LED lighting you may think it would be a very simple choice to choose as there is only one option…white?
Wrong; there are actually different various shades of white to choose from.

The 3 main shade descriptions of whites are:

  • Warm White (also known as soft white) – being described as warm white does not mean that it is warm to touch, the warm is actually describing the shade of white the LED lights up. Warm white tends to be a slightly yellow/brown in colour just like your standard halogen light bulbs. Warm white tends to be used to give a warm, homely feel. The technical specification of warm white is anything from 2700k – 3200k (lower being warmer)
  • Pure White (also known as daylight white, commercial white, bright white) – this is the closest resemblance to daylight white, it tends not to have any yellow (warm) or blue (cool) tint to it. This is used in commercial applications and also to highlight areas; it is generally brighter than warm white. On the kelvin scale pure white would be anything from 4500k to 6000k (lower being warmer)
  • Cool White – this white is used the least out of the 3 as it is generally too ‘cool’ (blue tint) for commercial and general use. However it is the brightest white and can be used to highlight areas. It still looks very white and the blue tint is extremely faint. This is great to create a cool, crisp feel. On the kelvin scale this would be 6500k+

For more information, see our support page explaining all your white LED tape options.

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.

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

The LED tape can be dimmed in various ways.

1 option is with our dimmable transformers: these are available in 12v/24v and in 30w and 100w. These can then be dimmed off a standard Triac wall dimmer (standard in households).

We also have Triac dimmable receivers; these go in-between the transformer and the LED strip. These work with both 12v and 24v version and are ideal for larger projects that use larger transformers such as the 320w.

Another option is with our 0-10v receivers, these can be used for both the 12V and 24v version. They go in-between the transformer and the LED tape and can be linked to such systems as Lutron.

We also have the option to dim via DMX. We have DMX receivers available to work with DMX desks and systems to allow you to fully dim as required. Again these go in-between the Transformers and LED tape and can be linked together to dim all the receivers at once.

For more information, see our support page comparing options for LED dimming.

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.

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.
