Discreet Micro-linear LED Lighting

“Lighting is everything. It creates mood and has an emotional effect on you” – Zak Bagans, Author.

Our micro-linear range of extrusions and LED sources offer unparalleled flexibility for discreet linear lighting in a breadth of applications such as illuminating alcoves and displays, creating a feature lighting around furniture or illuminating ceilings, walls and floors.

Our comprehensive range of aluminium extrusions, flexible LED tapes with high lumen packages, and driver options will provide the right solution for almost all indoor or outdoor architectural areas.

We specialise in tailor-made products – so we take the headache out of finding and assembling the perfect lighting solution for you. Our experienced team will then draft up a lighting design and supply you with a sign-off drawing for your approval. We then cut and build all the individual lengths and fit them with secure plug-and-play connectors so all you have to do is unpack, install, and turn it on.

For this brand new distribution centre in Somerset, we provided elegant lighting for each of these beautifully designed shared pods. Discreetly positioned behind each seat the 1.2 metre Optos 1 aluminium channel features a high efficiency flexible led at 3000K with an opal optic.

We also offer IP rated micro linear solutions that can be integrated into many outdoor or communal areas, including walkways and stairs. We supply an IP65, 67 or 68 module combined with an IP rated driver and connectors that continues to deliver excellent elimination under challenging conditions.

Our Neonflex Kit offers a premium waterproof seal and is available in vertical or horizontal bending radii for custom applications. It is made from a heat-resistant silicone and polyurethane material making it UV and salt-water resilient. See more of our micro-linear projects




Our micro-linear range is very simple to work with. All of our micro-linear extrusions, LED tapes/boards and power supplies are interoperable and between them give you an incredible number of options and flexibility. Below are some key points that you should be aware of if you plan to build your own system.

  • Aluminium Extrusion – deciding on a suitable extrusion to hold your LED tape or board is essential. Firstly establish the direction of the illumination that you require. You can then select the extrusion with the appropriate optic position and direction. We have a suitable range for surface mounting or recessed installations and all our aluminium extrusions have excellent heat dissipation.
  • Power Supply – all of our micro-linear LED solutions utilise a DC 24V power supply so the only considerations are what control options are needed and how much power you need to run in all on. Each LED tape and board has a watts per metre value. Simply multiply this value by the number of metres you need to illuminate to tell you the minimum capacity power supply you will need.
  • Cut Points – each of our micro-linear flexible LED tapes and boards can be shortened using cut points at equal intervals along their length. This length varies from product to product and should be checked against your overall length requirements. Our cut points range from 8.3 mm to 100 mm.
    Copper contact pads located at the end of every cut point segment allow for electrical connection anywhere along the length of the LED tape/boards. This also allows shorter pieces to be joined together into a longer chain – reducing wastage.
  • Maximum Run – there are limits to the maximum length you should power in a single run due to something called a “voltage drop”. This electrical resistance gradually reduces the amount of voltage as it travels through the tape, resulting in less light output at the farthest end. As a guide, our Optaline boards can be run for up to three metres and our Microflex range up to six metres before any perceivable difference. However, our Superlength range is specialised for much longer runs of up to thirty metres without loss, thanks to its innovatively designed constant current circuit. The only limit is the capacity of the power supply.
