LED Lighting Strips: A Versatile and Functional Lighting Solution

In less than a decade, light-emitting diodes, or LEDs, have redefined how homes, businesses, and even local governments approach and measure illumination.

Semiconductor-powered LEDs provide a direct light source that’s more compact, lasts longer, and consumes less power than traditional halogen and compact fluorescent (CFL) light bulbs. Any of these factors alone should be enough to encourage most people to consider LEDs, but together they make a compelling argument for why now’s a good time to rethink your interior and exterior lighting.

SAL has been Australia’s leader in LED technology since 1998, and they’ve created one of the most innovative lighting product lineups found anywhere in the world. They’re true pioneers of LED lighting, and you’ll be amazed by how much they can help you spruce up your home or office lighting.

Remake Your Living and Working Spaces with SAL LED Lighting Strips 

From luxurious residential track and batten lighting, to stylish architectural and flood lighting, SAL is no stranger to ground-breaking LED solutions. That’s why when you’re looking for ways to add new depth to old spaces in your home or office, programmable SAL LED strip lights are the perfect complement for your other contemporary lighting fixtures.

Let’s be honest: while there’s no shortage of LED talking points, at the core they’re about saving money and energy. Their natural, low-power efficiency means:

  • They’re not burdened by the costly loss of energy on heating gases and metal filaments to produce light;
  • They don’t emit a dangerous level of heat that can damage surrounding features or fixtures; and,
  • They’re capable of lasting 5-10 times longer (https://www.energyrating.gov.au/document/fact-sheet-led) than their halogen and CFL counterparts.

These are the reasons why high-quality SAL LED lights are so highly respected and so widely accepted. You can safely and conveniently install SAL LEDs in locations that might not be feasible or even possible with traditional lighting sources, and the subtle but striking effect they’re going to have on your living or working environment will astound you.

  • IP20 – IP65 protection rated from water and moisture intrusion;
  • Corresponding IP-rated driver;
  • Roll lengths up to 50m; and,
  • 5mm – 10mm widths.

Along with SAL’s high luminosity neon strips, you can easily create custom-length LED strips by cutting and splicing them at the appropriate points; and they come in a range of colour temperatures that include:

  • Warm white (3000K);
  • Cool white (4000K);
