Coming with sequenced warm white & cool white LEDs, the Mirrorstone 14.4w/m dual colour LED strip light can be used in all domestic installations as well as a wide range of commercial projects.
Due to strip lights versatility to be installed in practically every domestic environment, they come with a backing that is self adhesive to amplify this versatility. Due to the wide range of surfaces that the LED Strip Lights are stuck to, we unfortunately cannot guarantee the adhesive on all surfaces. These strips can also be cut to the nearest 100mm so you can get lengths of strip lights cut to lengths that are specific to your installation.
Did you know that all of our LED Tape is dimmable? Simply use alongside a dimmable driver to alter the brightness!
Please note that all IP67 and IP68 tape comes in lengths of up to 5m max, and will not fit in any of our aluminium profiles.
IP65 tape comes in maximum lengths of up to 25m, and will be soldered tape to tape every 5m for any lengths over 5m. Although 25m lengths are available in this way, there is no guarantee that it can be ran continuously due to power drop. Please get in touch with us if you require further information about this.
IP20 tape may or may not come soldered tape to tape, as this depends on how it arrives to us from our suppliers.

Shield Your LED Strips From Water Damage
One of the reasons for the aforementioned versatility is due to the IP Ratings available for the strip light. The available IP Ratings and their uses are in the table below:
Offering no protection from any form of water, you are advised to install IP20 LED strip lights where there is no water access. It has a vast use in almost all internal installations.
Coming with a silicone layer for added protection from water, IP65 LED strip lights are normally installed in bathrooms and external.
Get Your Strips Cut Free Of Charge
Like previously mentioned, these strips have cutting points every 100mm. As not everyone is able to solder LED strips, Wholesale LED Lights offers a free cutting and soldering service where we can make up the lengths to your specification. This service is only available for strip lights purchased at Wholesale LED Lights. Despite only using three cores on the LED strip we can still extend cable on the end with the 4 core LED cable.
All LED Tape is priced per metre. If you purchase any amount of LED strip lights then we will send it out as one full, uninterrupted length e.g. 1 x 3m rather than 3 x 1m.
Illuminating The LED Strip Lights And Variable Colour Temperatures
Foregoing that the strip contains sequenced warm white and cool white, you have the option of changing the intensity of each colour to get a wide range of colour temperatures ranging from 3000K up 6000K. Our power supplies do not operate the strips as well so you would need to purchase a dual colour controller.
Despite the common perception that being dimmable, the strip lights require a dimmable LED driver. They are dimmed from the controller at low voltage so you will only need a standard LED driver.
The range of power supplies we sell can accommodate for a wide range of lengths of strip. Notable lengths of LED strip and their total wattages are in the list below:
■ 1 Metre - 14.4 Watts;
■ 3 metres - 43.2 Watts;
■ 5 metres - 72 Watts;
■ 10 metres - 144 Watts;
■ 15 Metres - 216 Watts.
With all low voltage LEDs, be it MR16 spotlights or LED strip lights, it is advised that you run at about 10% under the maximum load of the power supply. This is to help manage the heat better in the and make run at its most efficient. This can then help maximise the lifespan.
Boost The Lifetime Of Your Strip Lights And Bring An Entire Appearance To Your Lighting
LED strip lights have a huge lifespan of up to and over 50,000 hours. This lifespan equates to around 15-20 years! This lifespan can change depending on the installations conditions. The table below, states three main factors that can extend or reduce the life of strip lights.
LED strip lights that are mounted onto a surface which dissipates very effectively like aluminium.
A surface that dissipates heat poorly, such as wood, can cause the LED strip lights to have a shorter life span.
Only use IP ratings when you need to.
Using IP ratings either more than you need or if when you don't need to.
If the temperature of the room the strips are in or the air temperature around the LED strip lights is cool.
Warm air in the room and around the LED strip lights can make the strip lights run at a warmer temperature and reduce the life of the strips.
If all these three favourable conditions are met then you are looking at up to an extra 50% lifespan of up to 75,000 hours!
To aid with this life extension, we have a range of aluminium extrusions that are brilliant at managing and dissipating heat. In addition to this lifespan increase, the extrusions can also provide a more complete finish with the option of coming with a frosted or clear diffuser.
IP65 LED strip lights that are not mounted into a profile are not covered by any form of warranty due to heat dissipation issues. If you have any IP65 LED strip lights that fail due to this reason then replacements will be charged at 50% of the retail price when bought with aluminium profile.
