ANL Lighting  introduces a new range of LED customisable strip enclosures developed by strip lighting specialist Vibe Lighting.

Strip lighting is increasingly being used in unconventional places as well as to replace fluorescent and incandescent linear lighting. Offering a wide choice of strip lights in various wattages and colours, Vibe Lighting has now added LED customisable strip enclosures to this range.

Compatible with most LED strip lights, Vibe’s LED strip enclosures are designed to simplify straight linear lighting installations. These strip enclosures are ideal for use in shelving, cove lighting, corridors, signage, decoration in exhibitions and events, and any linear lighting application.

Product Development Manager Stephen Forsyth explains that Vibe Lighting has provided the perfect solution for protecting LED strip lights, creating a 'fluorescent tube like diffusion' that allows the LED strip with its individual LED chips to have a smooth spread of light and soften the look completely. This customised aluminium extrusion is easy to install and can be used for continuous linear installations and run for as long as required.

The aluminium profile of the new Vibe customisable strip enclosures not only encases the strip, but also works as a heat sink to maximise the life of the LEDs. By staggering the PMMA diffuser over the joins of the aluminium backing, it provides rigidity and a straight clean line to deliver an excellent finish for the design.

Key features of Vibe's customisable LED strip enclosures include standard lengths of 300mm, 600mm and 1200mm, customised to any length required to suit the application; surface mount or recessed installation options; frosted PMMA diffuser as well as end caps and mounting brackets for easy installation; and IP44 rating for protection against objects greater than 1mm from affecting operation, as well as against splashes of water from entering and damaging the strip.

Vibe supplies an ever growing network of lighting retailers and hardware stores, electricians, landscape designers, architects and builders with a wide range of lamps, light fittings and other electrical merchandise.
