When it comes to our 2110 Series of LED Strip, it's important for us at Hi-Line Lighting to instruct customers to take care when handling them prior to and during installation. The reason for this is that as LED strips continue to evolve, we're able to pack LED chips into them more densely, whilst maintaining high efficiency and CRI values. We're now at a stage where 700 LEDs per metre is achievable and suitable connectors are being designed for them. It stands to reason, then, that due to the smaller dimensions of the chips being used, in addition to the tighter spacing between them, accidents may happen should they not be handled carefully. Never forcefully bend your strips or apply great pressure the the chips, as this could result in them coming away from the FCP. It's also worth reiterating that an aluminium flat bar or LED Profile be used for installing the strip on to, as this helps with dissipating the amount of heat generated by these high performers.
