    Share this page:

    LED tape is a revolutionary product that allows LED lighting users to put light in places that were once thought to be impossible, and to create lighting fixtures and lighting effects in new and inexpensive ways. In short, it is disruptive technology - and it all starts with a strip.

    Ordering Information:

    Each type of QolorFLEX LED Light Strip is identified by a part number which consists of 7 sets of characters. Each character set specifies a particular attribute of the tape. Please refer to the Part Number Key to confirm you order the product needed. For a brief description of the different tape attributes, refer to the TERMINOLOGY section below. 


    LED SIZE                      
    Refers to the actual chip size of the LED. In general, larger the chip size, the more light  output is possible. Single color QolorFLEX LED Tape is available in 2 chips: 5050 (.50mm x .50mm) and 3258 (.35mm x .28mm). Multicolor QolorFLEX types (RGB, RGBA, RGBCW, RGBNW, RGBWW, RGBI) all use the 5050 chip. Our Adjustable White (WWCW) uses the 3528 chip size.

    QolorFLEX is available in both 12 and 24 Volt configurations. 24 Volt strip allows for longer continuous runs and requires half the amperage of 12 Volt strip to operate.

    QolorFLEX is available in a variety of different colors and combinations of colors. Single color white stripes are available in cool (CW), natural (NW), and warm (WW) color temperatures. Adjustable white (WWCW) has a combination of alternating cool and warm white chips which can be controlled to achieve a specific color temperature according to preference. Multicolor strips consist of RGB tricolor LEDs plus a fourth color (amber, cool, white, natural white, warm white, indigo) LED, which enables the mixed color output to be tuned and or balanced as needed. 


    QTY LED'S PER METER                   
    This is the number of LEDs contained in a meter of tape. More LEDs produce more light output. 

    QolorFLEX is most commonly sold in full reels which contain 5 meters (16.4ft) of product. Each end of the strip sold this way has a soldered pigtail of color coded ribbon cable for attaching to dimming / power devices. For custom lengths less then 5 meters, "CTL" should be substituted when ordering, and the desired pigtail configuration discussed with our sales department as is needed. For an 18" sample length without pigtails use "0" as the length designation. Please contact your nearest dealer to help with custom quotes. 

    Indicates the approved use environment. IP 20 is Approved for indoor use only, IP 67 is Suitable for outdoor use.  

    Currently, all QolorFLEX Tape is available with a white (1) background color as a standard product.

    If a background color other than white is required, contact our sales department for custom pricing and lead times.   

     QolorFLEX LED Tape at Pip's Island case study

    "For this show, we needed LED tape that could react like a high end theatrical fixture, dimmers that would dim at low levels, and quality that would last. That is why we specified QolorFLEX."

    What makes QolorFLEX® LED Tape unique?

    QolorFLEX is a carefully selected family of 40+ reliable and durable LED tapes, dimmers, and accessories for professional entertainment and architecture.

    Each product is manufactured to our exact specifications. For example:

    • LEDs are binned during manufacturing, and all reels are unspooled, rechecked for binning, accuracy, and quality before shipping.
    • Each tape includes leads on both ends, which saves both time and money for lighting and scenic professionals.
    • Ribbon cables are consistently manufactured in a logical RGB order for easy installation.

    What makes our 20 styles of 24V QolorFLEX LED Tapes ideal for installations?

    1. 24V LED Tapes Have Less Voltage Drop

    This means that longer runs of QolorFLEX 24V LED Tape will appear consistently bright throughout the strip – even towards the end.

    2. Higher Voltage LED Tapes Are More Efficient
    Since Amperage is equal to Wattage/Volts, you require less amperage when working with higher voltage LED tapes. This means that you won’t fill up your dimmers as quickly as you would when using 12V LED tapes.
