How to Select
How to select Rope Lights
Rope lighting is the best lighting tool to help you decorate your house when preparing for the holidays. The following guide will help you not to get lost among the countless options, so that you can select the best ropelights for your decorative needs.
The first detail to pay attention to is the power usage of a rope light. Since rope lighting and the decorative elements that are made from it usually operate at night—well, in some cases they are used nonstop—ensuring that they use energy-saving lighting technology is crucial. LED technology is the best option for rope lighting solutions because of its durability and energy consumption. For example, LED rope lights provide almost 100.000 hours of operation while conventional fixtures offer 3-4 times less operating time.
The next detail to consider is the color of the light. The most common colors of rope lighting are white, red, blue, green and yellow and they are more than enough to help you embody your decoration ideas.
When the power usage and color options are specified, consider the diameter of the rope lighting that you are about to purchase. Most of the rope lighting is available in 3/8” and ½” diameters. All of the rope light accessories offered today are designed for these diameters. Rope lighting with bigger diameter is generally used for holiday decorating or outlining buildings. Smaller diameter is used for creating decorative fixtures with sharp curves. If you need to connect two ropes with different diameters, use a special coupling that can be found in every hardware store.
Last but not least, it’s important to pay attention to the rope light’s wire count. The wire count should remain consistent through all connections and runs of rope and accessories that are connected to it. This will help you ensure that all rope lighting fixtures operate correctly. If you plan to use steady light to decorate your house, 2 wire count is your choice. In order to create special light effects, select the rope lighting with 3, 4 or 5 wire count options. In addition to that, pair the rope lighting with a special controller for the effects to work. Special controllers could be found along with rope lighting accessories in every hardware store.
Now that you know what factors to consider, selecting a perfect rope light will no longer be a problem. If you don’t want to create decorative elements and statues by yourself, you can always purchase a rope lighting kit that has an already made figure.
