Installation

RibbonFlex Pro LED tape is a new and exciting type of lighting. It’s ultra thin and narrow, has a peel-and-stick backing and can be cut and connected at regular intervals along its length, letting you add lighting exactly where you want it. No soldering is required; quick-connectors are used to splice or join tape strips, and standard wiring is used to connect the lighting to a 12-volt power supply, color controller (for RGB tape lighting), or accessories such as an LED dimmer.

It is important to read the Installation Guidelines completely to understand how the product works, and how it can be configured, cut to size, and connected. Installation is well within the abilities of most with basic wiring skills such as stripping, splicing, extending and connecting wires.

All Armacost Lighting products and components come packaged with Installation Guidelines.
