1. Make sure you know the requirements for your project, then compare lumen output,CCT and CRI when looking at options.
2. Compare the size and number of beads on the roll.
3. Understand the wattage and voltage that the LED strip light uses.
4. Make sure that the products have verifiable quality.
2.What is an LED strip light and how does it work?
A LED strip light is a flexible circuit board that is populated with LEDs.
Strip lighting allows you to install powerful, energy efficient, discreet lighting fixtures in places you normally wouldn’t be able to reach.
3.Can our LED strips be cut?
Yes, they can be cut to desired lengths. Check out our how-to article on cutting LED
4.Can our LED strips be soldered?
Yes,Forstled LED strips can be soldered. This is the ideal method to install strip
5.Do our LED strips have an adhesive on the backs of the strips?
Forstled strip lights have 3M brand adhesive that allows for a very easy and secure installation. For heavier outdoor-rated strips, we recommend using the silicone mounting brackets for a more long-term mount.
6.What specific adhesive is used on your LED strips?
Non waterproof IP20 and waterproof IP65 use the 3M VHB 4930 adhesive tape. Outdoor water resistant IP65 uses the 3M 9731 adhesive tape.
7.How long will the LED lights last? Our lights
have been rigorously tested and have an expected lifespan of 50,000 hours before dropping to 70% luminosity. This means that if
you use the light 12 hours a day, it would be expected to last 10 years longer,and will still maintain a brightness of 70% .
Higher-output strips require a heat sink to reach the expected lifespan.
