Outdoor IP65 UltraBright™ Design Series LED Strip Light 

warm white LED strip lighting example


The Outdoor UltraBright™ (IP65) Design Series LED strip lights are 16ft 5in or 8ft reels of high intensity LED chips on flexible strips of printed circuit boards (PCBs) with a strong adhesive backing. To achieve weather protection, the strip is coated in silicone plastic casing. Sometimes referred to as "LED tape lights", the flexible design of LED strips allows for the addition of light in basically any space you can imagine. UltraBright™ LED strips are great at providing elegant, discreet lighting and are commonly used by architects and lighting designers in professional installations.

Q: What is the importance of UL Listed?

UL is an acronym for the Underwriters Laboratories. They are an independent product safety certification organization. A good summary used by UL is, "a not-for-profit organization dedicated to public safety." This means you can install these LEDs in commercial spaces, industrial applications, and in your home with peace of mind.

Q: What is the product warranty?

We offer a 15-year warranty on most of our LED strips. Our warranty on power supplies ranges from 2 to 7 years which is model dependent.

Q: What is the lifespan of your strip lights?

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 were to use your lights 12 hours a day, every day, the lights would be expected to last longer than 10 years. Even after that time has elapsed, the lights will maintain a brightness of 70%.
Higher-output strips require a heat sink to reach the expected lifespan.

Q: What is color temperature?

The color of light can be quantified by referring to its color temperature. White light is measured in Kelvins (K). Most white lights fall in a spectrum between 1800K and 6500K. When falling below 3000K, the light is noticeably warmer. On the other end of the spectrum, the lights have a blue-ish tint and cooler tone when passing above 6500K.

Q: Which color temperature should I choose?

Choosing the correct color temperature lights for your project is very important, and as important as the brightness you choose. Consider the look and feel you want your project to have. What other color lights will be present? What material and color are the materials you wish to light? We can help you choose!

Q: What is a 3014 SMD LED chip?

3014 SMD (Surface Mounted Diode) represents the size of the LED chips on the strip. A 3014 SMD chip measures at 3.0mm x 1.4mm. Click here for more information on LED chip sizes.

Q:What are lumens (lm)?

This is a quantifiable amount of light produced by an LED strip or other light-producing product. This is how we measure light output.

Q: Do you sell your outdoor rated lights by the foot?

No, we do not. We stock out IP65 outdoor rated lights in 8’ or 16’ lengths. For certain projects, we may be able to produce special lengths for you. Please let us know your requirements. IP68 waterproof strips are available in 16’ lengths that may be special ordered and subject to a one month manufacturing lead time.

Q: What are the recommendations on adhering outdoor-rated strip lights?

All of our outdoor-rated lights come with mounting brackets. The strip also has a 3M adhesive on the back. We recommend using both for the most secure installation. They can also be installed within a mounting channel.

Q: What does IP mean? What is the difference between IP65 and IP68?

This is a rating system that defines the ability of a product to be able to work in different environments. IP is an acronym "Ingress Protection". It is a measurement of the protection an item will have against solid objects (dust, sand, dirt, etc.) and liquids.
An IP rating is comprised of 2 numbers. The first number refers to the protection against solid objects (dust, etc) and the second number refers to protection against liquids. Read an article on IP ratings, here.

Q: Can I cut reels that are outdoor rated IP65?

Yes. Be sure to reseal the strip light each time it’s cut to prevent water damage. A lot of clients like to use a liquid electrical tape.

Q: How flexible are these outdoor strips?

The IP65 is flexible like a measuring tape. Because we use a soft silicone sleeve to make the strip water resistant, it is still very flexible.

Q: What is the maximum run length of the UltraBright™ lights before voltage drop?

Maximum continuous string of lighting in series: 16ft 5in (5m)
Longer connections are possible in parallel with the correct power unit.  What is voltage drop?

Q: Which Power Supply do I need for my (x) feet of LEDs

The length of LED strip lights of your project will determine the size of the power supply you need. View our Power Supply chart to find the exact LED power supply you need.

Q: Which wire gauge do I need?

Different setups require different wire gauges (wire thickness) for safety and performance. The current and run length will determine the exact gauge of wire needed for your project. Read here for more information on how to select the correct wire gauge for your LED strip light installation as well as managing voltage drop.

Q: How do I mount the lights

The 3M double sided adhesive that is found on the back of the LED strip allows you to install them in most locations. Be sure to thoroughly clean the surface to remove all dust and particulate matter before mounting the strip. Certain surfaces may require you to take additional measures to secure the strips lights into place. Feel free to call us with any questions.

Q: Can I cut the strips myself?

Yes, LED strips are made to be cut to your desired length. Using sharp scissors, you can cut the strip every few inches (on a line that's marked after every third LED).

Q:Wow these are bright! What do I do if I want to dim my LED strip lights?

All LED strip lights are dimmable. The LED strips can be dimmed either through our dimmers [PWM dimming], or by a Lutron wall dimmer

To dim the lights you have two options:

  1. If you plan to dim your LED strips using a hardwired Lutron wall dimmer, you need a Zurik dimmable driver. This driver itself will be dimmed from the Lutron switch.

  2. If you do not plan to dim the lights from a hardwired wall dimmer and want to dim them with one of our dimmers, you will need a non-dimmable LED driver [Mean Well or Flexfire LEDs Brand]
