Tivoli Boosts Design Opportunities with Its New Ground Breaking Elite Series TivoTape™

Tivoli Boosts Design Opportunities with Its New Ground Breaking Elite Series TivoTape™ Without a doubt, LED Tape Light has become a staple in most Lighting Designers creative palette’s. However, there have been some limitations which have challenged that creativity, and Tivoli Lighting has continued to work hard solving those challenges. In regards to Low Voltage LED Tape Light, there is a distinct difference between maximum load lengths to maintain Class II listed status and the maximum run lengths before experiencing significant voltage drop, which will result in lumen loss. Tivoli has solved that with the design of our proprietary Zero Drop Elite TivoTape™. Most LED Tape uses from 1-3 oz of copper for the traces. TivoTape™ Elite embodies 4oz copper traces. Read more »
