LED stands for light emitting diode. An LED is a semiconductor
device that emits visible light when electrical current passes through
it. LED rope lights make great decorations during the holidays but
they look just a good any time of year. They are ideal for lighting
building outlines, holiday light sculptures, trade show lighting
and night clubs. These popular lights work well on commercial buildings
because they are bright enough to compete with all of the other
lighting that is so common in commercial areas LED lights produce
an amazing 8.5 lumens per foot, compared to traditional incandescent
lights which only produce 3 lumens per foot. These lights also have
a very long life, making them ideal for the heavy usage required
by commercial entities. They typically last an average of 50,000
hours but can last for up to 100,000. Traditional rope lights only
last an average 5,000 hours.
There are several equipment pieces that make installing LED rope
lights easier. Mounting clips are pretty easy to install and are
very similar to the clips used for other holiday lights. U-channel
clips, on the other hand, create straight outlines on building surfaces
such as wood, metal or brick. They are generally 3 feet long and
sell for approximately $1.39 each.
There are several advantages to using LED lights over traditional
incandescent lights. LED lights consume less power. Because their
consumption of power is so low (30mW to 200mW), people can actually
save money and energy by using them.
LED rope lights are also safer than their incandescent counterparts.
They use less heat and so they pose less of a fire hazard or burn
danger for small children. They don’t use filaments to heat
them up, but instead are heated up as a result of energy exchange
between the materials used.
These powerful lights are appropriate for indoor or outdoor use.
They are available in several different colors such as red, green
and white among many others. The price of the lights will vary depending
on the color. This is because different materials are used to create
the different colors and some of those materials are more expensive
than others. White LEDs, for example, are the most expensive because
red, green and blue LEDs are combined together to make a white LED.
LED rope lights are sold on large spools and range from 100 feet
to 300 feet in length. They vary in price from $2.95 to $7.95 per
