IP67 Rated outdoor LED strip lights
When installing LED strip lighting in an outdoor setting it is important to ensure the correct IP rating is specified. IP67 rated are completely protected against dust and submersible in water up to 1 metre for 30 mins. As they provide a substantial level of water protection IP67 strips are regularly used for outdoor lighting projects.
The protection is provided by a silicone covering that completely encases the circuit board. Unlike cheaper gel coatings silicone does not discolour or crack with changing temperature for long term protection.
As a company we stock a variety of single colour and colour changing IP67 tapes suited to a range of installs. Shop our range today and find the right IP67 LED strip for your outdoor lighting project.
Installing Outdoor LED strip lighting
To ensure longevity when installing LED lighting outdoors there are measures that can be taken to prevent water damage. Once an IP rated strip is cut it is important to reseal the tape with a silicone sealant. This prevents water from accessing the circuit board through the incision made when cutting the strip.
Any connections made outdoors must be properly sealed to prevent water from travelling down cables into components. This happens over a prolonged period of time and can be prevented using products like our raytech GEL connectors. These connectors protect junctions against water ingress and ensure complete water protection.
