New Rio Grande Waterproof LED Light Strip Increases Lumens Per Dollar

new rio flexible waterproof led light stripLED Waves is pleased to announce some exciting new upgrades to our brightest flexible light strip. The Rio Grande Waterproof is now available in longer 5 meter spools (approx. 16.4 feet) with bare wire ends. This is welcome news to our many lighting design customers who use the Rio Grande in bigger and brighter projects!

Previously available in only 3 meter spools, the 5 meter Rio Grande Waterproof Flexible LED Light Strip features the same powerful LEDs, spacing, and overall technical specs. You can cut, connect, and control these strips the same way you would with the original.

There are a couple of slight changes, however, that only add to the quality of this popular LED strip. First, we improved the waterproof sleeve on the Rio Grande, using a new silicon blend for better light transmission from all sides – while maintaining its IP65 protection.

We also improved the Rio Grande price! By ordering longer lengths and larger quantities of these strips in 2700K and 4000K (the most commonly used CCTs for our LED strip lights), we got great rates on our stock, which we’re passing onto our customers.

The Rio Grande is now more affordable than ever at $119.95 per 5 meter spool. With up to 1,014 lumens per meter, it’s the best & brightest value in LED light strips. Call us at 1(800)986-0169 for custom cutting and sealing or other special orders.

Art Transforms Sound Into LED Light Waves

Murmur is one of the loveliest LED light art installations we’ve seen. This multimedia piece invites participants to speak into a cone-shaped device connected to a wall. Their voices are transmitted through a pulsing LED strip and then splashed onto a screen in a number of moving abstract light designs.

Murmur — From sound to light, by talking to walls. from Chevalvert on Vimeo.

A collaborative creation by French design studios 2Roqs, Chevalvert, Polygraphik and Splank; Murmur transforms sound into light waves (LED Waves, eh? eh?) – opening up a conversation with an unlikely audience. What would you say to Murmur?
