About Light Tape UK and Light Tape®


Light Tape UK Limited is Based in Barnsley South Yorkshire and is the exclusive distributor for Electro-LuminX® products in the UK and Ireland and has been trading since 2005.

Light Tape UK Limited launched a revolutionary, cost-effective slim and flexible electroluminescent lighting strip system that operates from low amperage supplies to provide numerous applications for use in industrial and commercial areas. Uses range from directional strip lighting in fire and safety applications to automotive, architectural and entertainment applications, as well as advertising displays and graphic display light boxes. It can even replace neon signage, notably for graphic display light boxes, where Light Tape® enables greatly reduced box thickness to just 12mm, a huge reduction on other commercially available florescent light signage systems, which are 40mm thick.

Light Tape® itself is just 0.5mm thick (as thin as a business card) and lightweight affording inherent flexibility of use and with this and the thinner Light Tape® light boxes, the weight of the system is considerably reduced making it easier and safer to handle. Light tape provides an 85% - 90% energy saving against other commercially available florescent light boxes and Light Tape® is also the longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the world. It can be supplied in a range of colours and widths, with lengths of up to 300ft or more. By varying supply voltage and frequency, the brightness and hue of Light Tape® can also be adjusted.

Driven by specially devised power supplies, it can be used in flashing or steady state modes in indoor or outdoor applications. The design of this state of the art product is both safe, there is no mercury incorporated in it, no glass to break or gas to escape, and is highly energy efficient too. A 25mm wide by 300ft long Light Tape®, consumes less power than a 100W light bulb whilst also being at least twice the brightness of alternative EL technologies.

In outdoor illuminated signage applications Light Tape® can be seen for miles. A NASA study for the Air Force on Light Tape® showed the technology easily visible from distances over five miles away. Notably Light Tape penetrates fog, snow, haze and other normally poor visibility conditions. Light Tape® is easy to install, and requires virtually no maintenance compared to alternative lighting technologies and the flat, flexible, plastic lamp generates no heat and can be wrapped around corners." bend radius is just 2mm. And unlike fibre optics, Light Tape® loves to be flashed sequentially or selectively which not only enhances applications but also significantly extends life. Multi-channel sequences and flashers are also available for use with Light Tape®.

Light Tape® is the most versatile light bulb ever developed! Patent protected Light Tape® is the thinnest, longest and brightest electroluminescent lamp in the World. Light Tape® is extremely light, flexible and very easy to install. We offer multiple colours, a variety of widths and lengths of 500 feet or longer.
