As LED strip lights have the properties to be installed nearly anywhere, they come with a self adhesive back so they can be stuck onto nearly any surface and location. Due to the wide range of surfaces that the LED Strip Lights are stuck to, we unfortunately cannot guarantee the adhesive on all surfaces. The strip lights are also able to be cut every 50mm so they can be shortened to very accurate lengths.
Please be informed that any and all IP65/67 LED Tape will be supplied to each customer in 5m reels.
For example, if you were to order 7m of tape - it will come to you, ready-soldered, in a reel of 5m with an attached 2m of tape.

The brand new Spectricline of LED strip lights will massively improve your lighting experience. These strip lights bring more vivid lighting, with a greater lumens to energy expenditure ratio than ever before. The life expectancy has been increased, with a whopping 50,000 hours of usage delivering a versatile light every single time.
Add Protection To Your LED Strips
Being as versatile as they are, internally and externally, all LED strip lights are available in a range of IP ratings (waterproofing) so they can be installed almost anywhere. A breakdown of these waterproofing options are listed in the table below:
Having no protection against water, IP20 LED strip lights are advised to be installed internally as they have no protection against water.
With a small silicone coating that is capable of withstanding splashes and jets of water, IP65 LED strip lights are advised for internal installation in bathrooms or externally where water can't easily access them.
Surrounded by silicone, the IP67 LED strips are designed to be installed externally in garden feature and external displays.
Being the most resistant to water, the IP68 comes encased in silicone and the IP68 Nano has a layer of hydrophobic silicone. This makes the strip lights highly workable compared to standard IP68. Both can be submersed to depths of up to 10m. This makes them highly usable in bespoke places such as swimming pools.
Due to the silicone coating on them, IP65, IP67 and IP68 strip light are available in lengths of up to 5 metres. As the IP20 doesn't have any coating and the IP68 Nano has a extremely thin layer of hydrophobic silicone, they are available in lengths of up to 10 metres.
All LED Strip Lights are charged by the metre however, so when you're ordering your tape, you will need to specify the length you require, rounding up to the nearest metre.
These products come with RGB LEDs that can mix varying amount of Red, Green and Blue to achieve a spectrum of 16 colours including cool white. Our power supplies do not have the function to control colour so you will also need to purchase a RGB controller.
We sport a full range of controllers that can have either an Infrared or Radio Frequency receiver. The infrared controller requires a direct line of sight from the controller to change the colour and modes whereas the Radio Frequency controller does not require this direct line of sight and needs no directional input. These styles are the most used for domestic installation.
For large commercial installations we strongly recomend using zonal controllers combined with our DMX system, which offers significantly increased load capacity. These controllers function very similar to the more domestically used controllers but far surpass their maximum loads.
All of our controllers have a variety of options such as colour changing, mode setting and mode speeds.
These strip lights can be dimmed, however you will need to dim them from controller meaning you shouldn't purchase any of our dimmable LED drivers as the controller will then not operate.
Our power supplies have varying maximum loads to accommodate a whole multitude of lengths of strip. Our controllers have maximum loads starting from 72 watts so please factor this in when buying strip lights. Below is a list of notable lengths and their wattages in 14.4w/m RGB LED strips:
■1 Metre - 14.4 Watts;
■3 metres - 43.2 Watts;
■5 metres - 72 Watts;
■10 metres - 144 Watts;
■15 Metres - 216 Watts.
With such products it is advised that you run about 10% under the maximum load of the power supply so it can manage its heat better, runs more efficiently which then maximises it's lifespan.
Amplifying The Life Of The LED Strips And Providing A Cleaner Look
LED strip lights come with an expected lifespan of up to 50,000 hours, which is nearly 15 years! This lifespan can fluctuate depending on the conditions which the strip lights are installed. In the table below, there are the three main conditions that affect the lifespan of the strip lights:
Cool air temperature surrounds the LED strips and/or has good ventilation.
Air around the LED strip is warm and does provide good ventilation.
Use IP Ratings when only necessary.
Use of IP Rating when unnecessary e.g. IP65 in where there no chance of water.
Having the strips mounted on a surface which can dissipate heat very effectively (e.g aluminium).
Strips that are mounted onto a surface which dissipate heat poorly (e.g. wood).
If all three of the favourable conditions are met, you can look at up to a 50% longer lifespan of 75,000 hours!
Helping with this extension, we sell aluminium profiles that are very effective at dissipating heat and in turn increasing the lifespan. On top of this life span extension, the aluminium profiles come with the option of having a clear or frosted diffuser to complete the full look.
IP65 LED strip lights that are mounted onto a surface that isn't an effective dissipater of heat, then they are not covered by any form of warranty. Replacements for these will then be charged at 50% of the retail price when purchased with aluminium profiles.
Extendable 5 Year Mirrorstone Warranty
Our full range of Mirrorstone manufactured LEDs and all of their related products come with a 2 year warranty. Above this, the full range of LED spotlights, LED light bulbs and LED tape can all be extended out to 5 years at no extra cost. This extended warranty can only be applied for and extended within the first 90 days of your order.
We have a series of 'How To' videos available for you to watch on our YouTube channel to help with the installation of LED strip lights.
Also, if you are having problems wiring your LED RGB strip lights then please refer to the below wiring diagram.
If you purchase any amount of LED strip lights then we will send it out as one full, uninterrupted length e.g. 1 x 5m rather than 5 x 1m.
If you have any questions about the difference in our controllers, the extendable warranty, wholesale rates & trade enquiries or any other queries, please feel free to contact us by e-mail on email@example.com or by telephone on 0116 321 4120.
Good value for money, very nice, easy to install and use.
Made to measure for my pong and they are fantastic and the multi colour are a must
Love them but there are 3 Leds in the strip that are differ colours to the rest of the strip.
Brilliant as always!!!!
Good product, good price, not the best at sticking to kitchen units, you will probably end up using silicon
I bought some strip light lights from another UK based company, they stopped working after a few weeks very poor quality. but after shopping with wholesale LED lights I was quick to see the the amazing quality of products they sell and the free made to measure service they offer. Thanks for the great service.
Got these to put round the back of my T.V. looks awesome and was really easy love them.
Bought some RGB LED Strips for our Kids playroom. The kids absolutely love it when the colours change from red to green to yellow etc. I also bought the wall plate with remote controller. This is one of the best investments I've made for my home in a while. The whole team there are great and each dealt with any query I had very efficiently. Highly recommend ordering from these guys!!!
Installed these for a customer who had been quoted 5 x the price by another company. These turn out not only to be cheaper but also better quality then the other company. Support was super and the Alex who I spoke to was very helpful and you can tel he has true experience of the product. I asked for custom cuts and this was done for me FOC too!. Items deleiver with 2 working days. Installed and looks amazing. WLED are now my prefered supplier for tape.
Quick delivery, great really bright lights. Great work.
Very powerful led strip lights, using rgb controller to dim lights down. When on full rightness easily light entire wall. Really happy with quality - does't feel as cheap as ebay ones do. Would buy again- thank you. Travis.
I was unsure whether to order these after finding them on the web-site so I called the sales department direct to ask a few questions. The person I spoke to was extremely helpful and answered all my questions. I old him I'd go away a dm thinka bout it and call him back which I duly did. He remembered the conversation we had and placed my order. I received the good the next day and was delighted with the product. It took me literally 15 minutes to install and has made a huge improvement to the room in which they have been fitted. (Home bar)
Fantastic product bettered only by the service I received.
light level is bright and colours look nice. control was easy to connect after calling customer service to help understand. was prepared and cut for me before i got which speed up the installation for us. have got it installed n an external bar in pub courtyard.
