American Lighting develops LED tape-rope hybrid kit combines ease of tape light with benefits of rope light

Oct. 30, 2012
Date Announced: 30 Oct 2012 Denver, Colo. - American Lighting, a manufacturer and distributor of lighting technologies for residential, commercial and specialty markets, is introducing the next wave of energy-efficient linear lighting - the LED Tape-Rope Hybrid light. The flexible lighting option has the low profile form factor of tape light but works like line voltage rope light, making it a versatile alternative for a wide range of indoor and outdoor lighting applications. Designed as the next generation of linear lighting, the LED Tape-Rope Hybrid is easy to work with and does not require an additional power supply. Users simply plug it in to standard 120V receptacles for an even and bright light that is 10 times brighter than regular rope light. In addition, the Hybrid light uses 75 percent less energy than incandescent rope and lasts twice as long. The small, rectangular profile is 25 percent narrower and almost 60 percent shorter than the ½ inch diameter rope light. The LED Tape-Rope Hybrid comes in five lengths – 3 feet, 6 feet, 12 feet, 30 feet and 60 feet – and is available in blue, green, white, warm white and red color options. Packaged in a convenient kit that includes the power cord and mounting clips, individual lengths of the Tape Rope Hybrid light may be interconnected up to 192 feet. The product is also UL Listed and dimmable with most standard incandescent dimmers.“We’ve had tremendous response to our tape and rope linear lighting products and have taken the best of both technologies and combined them into the LED Tape-Rope Hybrid,” said Richard Lyford, Director of Sales, American Lighting. “Our customers will appreciate a much brighter linear light in a small size, making this next generation energy efficient lighting a popular choice in years to come.”AVAILABILITYThe LED Tape-Rope Hybrid Kit is available in December of 2012.
