  • Best variety of LED diffuser tubes for sale online

    Wired4Signs USA stocks an exciting range of polycarbonate LED lighting tubes including our very own Smokies series. LED tube lights offer a uniquely interesting option for creating artistic lighting fixtures for permanent and temporary installations. These light tubes are particularly effective when combined with RGB or programmable RGB pixel LED strip for colorful effects.

    We stock our LED light tubes and accessories at our warehouse in Knoxville, Tennessee and can ship to all parts of the USA.

  • What are LED diffuser tubes?

    LED diffuser tubes are translucent, rigid plastic tubes with an LED light source installed inside. These tubes are typically made of polycabonate or methacrylate plastic. The purpose of the LED light tube is to:

    1. a structure to protect, accommodate and hide the LED strip
    2. diffuse the light emitted by the LED strip

    The LED strip in mounted onto an aluminum heat dissipation plate which is installed inside the frosted diffuser tube. This helps to draw the heat away from the LED strip and makes it easy to slide the strip into the diffuser tube.

    These LED lighting tubes present a solid color – either white or smoky black – when off, but boldly take on the LED color across their entire surface when illuminated, creating a stunning visual effect.

    LED tube light systems consist of the frosted diffuser tube itself, an aluminum heat dispation plate, and a variety of end cap and mounting bracket options. LED diffuser tubes can be cut to size to fit the application, or we will cut to length for you. (See our blog on tips for cutting led channels.)

  • Pros & Cons of LED tube lights

    • LED diffuser light tubes light up their entire surface to create a fully illuminated tube for eye-catching effects.
    • Smoky black polycarbonate LED diffuser tubes are used to create lights which can be hidden to the eye when they are off, and yet boldly catch your attention when on.
    • Programmable RGB pixel LEDs can be used to create impressive "living" lights.
    • Care is required to seal the wire entry and end caps if the tube is used outdoors.
    • Because the aluminum LED mounting plate is completely enclosed in the polycarbonate tube, the maximum LED power that can installed is limited to prevent excessive heat build up.
  • How to install LED tube lights

    Step-by-step guides or drawings are usually available for each type of LED tube diffuser, but these are the basic steps for setting up your installation:

    1. Decide what diameter tube you required for your LED light.
    2. Decide what color (or RGB) LED strip you want.
    3. Pick an LED strip of your chosen color which matches the maximum width and power rating specified for your LED tube.
    4. Work out the total wattage of your installation as per the cut sheet of the LED strip.
    5. Choose the correct rating and features for your LED drivers based on your installation requirements taking into account for example whether you require dimming, etc. More on this subject can be found on our blog about choosing the right LED driver.
