Flexible LED Neon Rope Lights

LED Neon Flex lights are a breakthrough in flexible lighting design. With their unique construction, these flexible lights can directly replace traditional glass neon with better performance, lower cost, and easier maintenance.

And with the next generation of this unique style of lighting, flexible LED neon lighting has never looked better. With LED neon, rope lights are taken to the next level, providing a continuous bright neon glow that ordinary rope lights can’t match.

See the difference in a comparison of LED Neon Flex vs. Traditional Glass Neon!


Flexible LED neon rope lighting is an ideal solution for many lighting application problems. As a direct replacement for traditional glass neon, LED neon can be use just about anywhere you would normally install glass neon. LED neon flex lights can be used as commercial building exterior perimeter lighting, interior accent lighting for bars, restaurants, or clubs, as well as back lighting, and much more. Unlike traditional neon installations, its durability and ease of installation allow flexible LED neon lighting to be installed in applications that glass neon wouldn’t typically be suited for: patron-height accent lighting in restaurants and bars, home theaters, cove lighting, architectural detail accent lighting, and more.

Consider some specific commercial uses for LED neon rope light installations. A nightclub owner can use LED Polar 2 neon rope light to outline a bar area, a dance floor, or steps within the facility, both for safety and decorative value. A hotel grounds crew can use these advanced neon string lights around the perimeter of an outdoor deck, pool area, or as attractive perimeter lighting for their building and special landscaping features such as ponds, statues, and gazebos. A condominium manager can have LED flex neon lights placed along walkways on the property for added safety of occupants and visitors, preventing accidents and possibly liability issues. The flexible nature of this lighting allows for close alignment to curves for a more professional appearance.

The Best of Both Worlds

The unique design and construction of flexible LED neon lighting has positioned it as “hybrid” product of sorts. It is designed as a direct replacement for traditional glass neon, with the outstanding optical properties you would expect from neon: extremely bright light output with smooth, uniform light distribution to give it that great neon “glow”. While keeping these great optical properties, the design of LED Flex Neon allows it to be very flexible, extremely durable, consume a fraction of the energy glass neon uses, and last much, much longer. And installation is much simpler, not requiring a master craftsman to shape and install any glass. LED Neon is the next generation of neon lighting.

Now let’s look at things from a slightly different point of view. Here is a plastic-tubing encased product that is very flexible and can be bent into almost any shape. It can be made to length to fit the job needed. It is super easy to install using mounting tracks or clips. Stopping here, we may well be discussing LED rope lights. But now we look at the optical properties of flexible LED neon, and here’s where things get kicked up a notch. Rope lights have 1-inch plus spacing on their LEDs and, with their clear jackets which allow you to see the individual LEDs, create a “dotted” appearance when viewed directly. This is not ideal for certain applications. When a lighting fixture is visible directly, you may want a product that will give off a continuous glow of light, not a “dotted” effect. This is where flexible LED neon takes over. Its tight chip spacing and unique jacket housing create a solid, continuous line of light, without any distracting hotspots. So if you have a lighting application that you thought was best for rope lights or tape lights, and hadn’t considered a neon product, take a closer look.

The superior optical performance of glass neon. The flexibility and ease of use of LED rope lights. Plus, some added benefits that neither one has.

To protect your investment and ensure optimum performance, we highly recommend the use of surge protection equipment on all lighting products.
