Easy Installation and Long-Lasting Energy Efficiency A standout feature of Kichler’s TaskWork LED Tape is its simple to use, plug and play connectors for fast and easy installation. A complete range of accessories incorporates a variety of connector options, including straight track holders for clean, even runs and varied lengths of interconnect cables to create angled turns for consistently directing light exactly as desired. While one side of the tape features tough 3M™ adhesive that sticks securely to rough surfaces, the other side features enclosed LED chips on a choice of a black or white strip. A silicone coating provides additional protection from weather elements. It is easy to clean and safe even when within thereach of children. TaskWork LED Tape connects to a plug-in or direct-wire power supply. When power is in a remote location, an added wire section is available to reach from the power supply to the tape without voltage drop. The outdoor/wet tape is available in 20-foot, 10-foot, four-foot and 12-inch sections and can be cut every four inches. It should only be cut to end a run as cut pieces cannot be connected back together due to the silicone coating. TaskWork LED Tape not only uses less power than xenon or halogen alternatives, it also offers low wattage compared to incandescent light and a 50,000-hour lifespan, or 20 years of life under normal use, with a five-year warranty.
