Due to the competitive nature of the LED market today, it can be confusing to know just where to find the "best" product currently available. Prices online can range from the absurdly cheap to considerably expensive, and if a customer can order a cheap LED strip from somewhere then they may not question the quality on offer.
So, what makes Hi-Line Lighting's LED Strips amongst the best on the market, and are we really just idly saying that to get plenty of custom?
The truth of the matter is that Hi-Line Lighting was started because the company genuinely believes in the product it sells; it's passionate about designing lighting systems which will endure for many years.
Anyone can simply go away and purchase a cheap LED tape; say, the average Joe who doesn't have a particular amount of knowledge regarding LED lighting. As professionals, though, we believe in turning to and supporting knowledgeable companies and manufacturers, so that we can access the best products available, which continue to evolve year by year.
Colour consistency is one such area in which you can easily separate the good from the poor.
With the naked eye, you may not initially be able to spot poor colour performance. However, sometimes installing several LED strip lights on the same project can yield inconsistent results, whereby colour degradation may appear more obvious. This can often be due to a poorly manufactured batch of lights.
Let's use an example of 1000 LEDs being produced, which consist of mixed up BINS ("Binning" being the the process of grouping together LEDs in order to maintain a consistent output). Approximately 100 LEDs will have the proper "BIN E", which can provide the purest colours; the rest are either abandoned or sold to LED manufacturers. The trouble with the latter, however, is that these potentially defective LEDs are then sold on by companies who are only interested in low production costs and not necessarily the needs of the actual customer.
During the production of our own LED Strips, we select only one BIN and this BIN type is the closest you can get to the Black Body Curve; this means that we can achieve the purest colours, with excellent consistency, which in turn means that you will receive the same BIN LED strip for every order you place with Hi-Line.
Because of the above, this is the reason why our products appear at a more premium price range. We strongly believe that we offer excellent value for money, which only supports the old adage that sometimes it really is a case of "You get what you pay for."
