A 'designer' LED tube

Wandlite LED tubeWandlite have produced a new concept in LED tube lighting. It is a versatile, waterproof, 12v, long-life LED tube light with 360 degree lighting, perfect for exhibition displays, backlit walls, outdoor illumination and interior lighting, according to the company. It was launched at LuxLive 2013 in London's Earls Court in November.

Jonathan Evitt, founder, wanted to design a light which was visually attractive, to get away from the utilitarian design of tube lights and produce something different. The spirally-wound LED tape gives a new visual slant to this type of product and the semi-translucent end fittings means the whole light glows from end to end.

Manufactured in Britain, the Wandlite tube runs off a standard 12v power supply but draws only 1.2 amps per metre. In situations where electrical supply is not possible such as outdoor events, campsites or emergency/ disaster relief, together with the right adaptors, it can be connected to a solar-powered panel, rechargeable battery, cigarette lighter or 12v car/truck battery. And it can also be connected to generator power.

According to Wandlite, the tube can be used in many markets to provide cheap, clean, eco-friendly lighting such as exhibition & display, events and retail. Available in 800mm, 950mm, 1000mm, 1250mm and 1500mm and 2000mm tube lengths, it can be used either as a stand-alone light, or connect two or more tubes together. The light can be supplied in custom lengths and colours if required.

Jonathan said; "We're very excited about the launch of the Wandlite LED tube at LuxLive this month. It's been a few years in the making and I've honed the design so that it not only meets the strictest quality standards but also have not compromised the design element."
