How to create a wow factor with flexible linear lights


Flexible linear lights are the perfect light design element to create a wow factor in any environment. Thanks to their elegance and diffused light they emphasize any setting where they are located. Let’s discover the secrets of these lights.

Flexible linear lights – what are they?

First of all, let’s find out what flexible linear lights are: they are long composite light ribbons with small LED chips positioned at regular intervals between them. These strip lights, available in various lengths, are very thin which makes them excellent for various uses, both indoors and outdoors.

This type of LED light is available both with the LED chips inserted inside a polyurethane body, or left exposed. The choice depends on the lighting effect you want to obtain, as well as on the environment in which the linear lights will be installed. If the linear LED lights used are left covered by the polyurethane body, not only is their beauty undiminished, they are also more resistant.

Flexible linear lights are the perfect solution for effective yet impactful lighting. This type of lighting, in fact, thanks to its structure, adapts to any type of application. Its flexibility makes for an element that fits in with the architecture of the context, whatever it is.
