The tape light can be used outdoors and it is not IP-67 compliant.
Hey Lee, We do offer power supplies that are rated for outdoors use. Contact us at email@example.com for more information regarding your project. As an alternative, you can purchase a weather proof enclosure (I.E Home Depot Internet #100567817) for your components to protect them from the elements.
Armacost Lighting’s RibbonFlex Pro is a component based system, allowing you to select only what you need for your project. To have a functioning lighting setup, you would need to add a 12-volt power supply (like our 60-Watt, homedepot.com item # 203227258), and a color controller, (like our Slimline controller, homedepot.com item # 205622961), plus any connectors or other accessories required for your project. See the installation instructions for a thorough guide on planning and configuring your lighting. For more thorough design or installation assistance tailored toward your project, please contact our support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org
This outdoor model is completely encased in a polyolefin tube that provides better protection from the elements, and is better for heat dispersion as compared to common “glue-drip” coatings that will yellow and crack over time. It utilizes a genuine 3M foam-core adhesive used in the automotive industry. Each component of the strip assembly, from the thickness of the copper, to the precise specification of the LED chipsets, is closely monitored and controlled to our requirements, ensuring a consistent product no matter where or when you purchase it. Our best-in-class RGB chipsets are specifically engineered to render a wide range of bold colors, as well as truer whites and pastels found in more sophisticated lighting designs. Unlike bargain strip lights with no safety certifications, RibbonFlex Pro RGB is CSA-certified for wet locations and conforms to UL standard 8750. Not least of all, our knowledgeable support staff is on hand to provide design and installation expertise that usually is not found with inexpensive direct-import LED strips. We’d love to share more with you on what sets our product apart, reach out to us at any time at email@example.com
For assistance in designing your lighting layout, please submit your project details to our support and design staff at firstname.lastname@example.org. Our knowledgeable team will help you select exactly what you need to accomplish your desired end result. Depending on your configuration, you may be requested to provide additional information. If possible, providing even a rudimentary, dimensioned sketch of your intended lighting layout can greatly help our staff in determining your desired results, and if there are any other important considerations for your application.
This Custom Color RGB tape lighting can produce a wide variety of colors and color-changing effects - these are determined by the color controller that you choose to pair with this lighting. Armacost Lighting’s Slimline RGB Color Controller (homedepot.com Item# 205622961) comes with a handheld remote control, and comes preprogrammed with 30 designer colors and 6 color changing effects. Our Custom Color RGB Controller (homedepot.com Item# 203569114) does not have a remote option, but it can be fine-tuned to produce a greater range of more precise colors. Please note that these controllers, and your power supply, must be shielded from the weather in an appropriate outdoor enclosure. Please contact us at email@example.com for further assistance with your project.
The parts you mention are available from homedepot.com. Perform a search for “Armacost” on the home depot website and you will see the full line of products on hd.com. Our outdoor RibbonFlex product features an automotive-grade 3M tape that features an extremely strong, permanent adhesive. Prepare the stone surface by cleaning it with acetone, ensuring it is dry and dust free. Doing so will ensure maximum adhesion, and should provide a great hold for your lighting. You’ll also want to make sure the wires and wire leads are supported around the tape lighting, as the weight of a dangling wire can prevent the adhesive from permanently sticking. For added adhesion, you can use a waterproof adhesive, like hd.com SKU# 202533796 or 551082. This adhesive would be applied after the tape light is in place with the 3M tape and used sparingly (a drop or so) every 6 to 12” on the side of the tape light. These adhesives can also seal your connections to minimize corrosion. Feel free to contact Armacost Lighting’s support staff at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have additional questions.
