Best Staircase LED Strip Lighting Online

Based near Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - Wired4Signs USA wants to share with you our best-lighted stairway products and ideas.

Modern LED stairs light ideas

Wired4Signs USA offers a large selection of aluminum stair channels to create your dream LED stairs light solution.

The few basic choices that you have for installing your LED light strips for stairs are as follows:-

1 LED stair nosing aluminum stair treads

We have a selection of stair nosing profiles that provide excellent LED step lights.

Niza Duo - available in black,8ft lengths, with up and down-firing options

Alu Stair Nano - our smallest tread lights for stairs, available in silver and in up to 10ft lengths. Up and down-firing light options

Alu Stair - this lighted stairs profile fires light up at 45 degrees and has a very good anti-slip design tread.

Tokyo - is suitable for light strips for stairs in indoor or outdoor applications due to its clever "Easy-on" top diffuser that effectively seals the led chamber from the top. The Step profile has provision for up and down-firing led strip lights.

Alustair2 - this robust led step light has provision for up and down-firing leds or the top diffuser can be replaced but an anti-slip rubber insert. Unfortunately, this profile stock is limited and may be subject to minimum order quantities

2 Recessed - understairs LED lighting

A popular choice for underlit stairs is to mill a groove underneath a solid oak stair tread, for example, and inset a recessed led channel in the groove so that the light source is hidden from the eye. We have a huge range of led recessed led strips to do this but here are a few of the best LED channels for the job:-

Nano Line or the slash8- these profiles will give a narrow light line that does not only give you lighted stairs but also is pleasing to look at if visible from below. This thin LED strip can even be grooved into the front of a wooden step and look especially good in floating stairs lighting.

Smart IN10 - available in silver, white, and black this profile provides perfect understairs led lighting with most led strips as it is fairly deep and therefore allows the led strip to be properly diffused.

Groove10 - is an excellent choice for staircase-LED strip lighting where you have a limited depth tread. This recessed led channel is designed to be inset in wood with ribbed returns to provide a push fit into the timber. Available in white, silver, or black LED channel

The Berlin or Berlin XL - both these recessed led channels are rated at IP65 waterproofing so they make a good option for outdoor step lights or deck lights. Available in a black or silver LED channel.

3 Surface mount under stair tread lights led channel

Surface mount led channels are used in the case where the visual sighting of the LED channel on the step is not an issue or in the case of stairwell lighting, there is an existing lip on the step.

Slim8 - This is our smallest LED channel that is suitable for an 8mm wide led strip. The small LED channel comes with a number of lens options and is available in black white or silver versions.

Begton12 - This profile is very similar to the Slim but slightly bigger to house upon a 12mm wide LED strip.Available in black, white, or silver

Cabi12 - is a 90-degree LED channel that has two mounting points so that the light can shine back at either 30 or 60deg

Corner14 - is also a 90-degree LED channel but this profile gives you the option of having the back of the channel exposed to blend in with the step or to make the steps look bulkier. Available in black, white, or silver

Surface14 - This is a favorite when it comes to LED strip lights for stairs due to its classy looks and its good selection of accessories including pre-made 90-degree corners. Available in black, white, or silver

Roma or Roma XL - These waterproof LEDC channels are favorites for deck steps lights or outdoor deck lighting. We Have the facilities to manufacture custom plug-and-play outdoor stairlights and deck lighting if required. Available in black or silver as well as the option of 20ft diffuser lengths.

4 Surface or Recessed wall step lights

Flat8 - This Cove Light Recessed Drywall LED Channel can be used to make small wall-enclosed staircase lighting units

Way10 - This surface mount-led skirting profile can be used to give a downward glow for stairway-led lighting. Available in black white or silver versions.

Skirt10 - This two-part skirting profile is also ideal for courtesy lighting or LED strip stairway lighting as it profiles indirect lighting as the LED strip is hidden. The Skirt10 led skirting profile is available in white or silver versions

5 Stair handrail lighting

Handrail lighting is another option for throwing light onto stairs. We offer the service of manufacturing oak wooden handrails with led lighting or custom baluster lighting

View our huge range of LED recessed led strips to do this but the options in point number 2, above, will apply pending the design of your stair handrail with led lights.

The Groove10 is a good option to use in a stainless steel handrail with led lights as it has a spring clip to enable the led channel to be mounted inside. Contact us for help with your banister lighting project.

6 Outdoor step lights for concrete

Dublin XL - This robust LED channel is ideal for inset concrete stair lights. The Dublin comes with a drive-safe, IP65 wet-rated diffuser cover making it suitable to be installed on the surface of the tread or under the step or as driveway lights in concrete.

Floor12 - This walk-safe, floor-led channel is ideal for low voltage step lights in concrete. This profile can be used in damp or wet locations by using silicone seals, and waterproof led tape, and we also offer the service of resin filling to make a complete sealed unit.

Alu Swiss20 - This driveway-led channel is suitable for housing-led lights for concrete steps. The tough, weather-resistant diffuser is vehicle safe and while it is designed to stop water ingress, we also recommend waterproof led tape or resin filling to make a complete sealed unit.

Pros & Cons of LED strips for stairs

  • stair lights indoor applications are fairly easy to produce al long-lasting installation but outdoor stair lights need to be thoroughly weatherproofed and installed by a qualified electrician.
  • Most LED strips are compatible with our LED Stair lighting profiles but bear in mind the width of the LED strip to make sure it will physically fit into the channel. Our Honeysuckle Series LED Strip is ideal for LED chambers that are narrower than 8mm
  • If the stair nosing profile is over 96 inches in length this can affect shipping costs. Bear in mind the freight implications in such instances. This can be overcome by using shorted lengths of profile in conjunction with linear connectors and long lengths of the diffuser which can be shipped rolled up – this gives a joint-free final result.
  • Our LED Strip lighting is all low voltage so ideal to use to create solar step lights
  • Our Casambi sensors are great to use for motion sensors for stairs and the Casambi PWM4 works well for dimming your installation

How to install led strip lighting for stairs

Step-by-step guides or drawings are usually available for each stairway-led lighting installation but contact us directly for assistance if required. Here are some of the basic rules to bear in mind:-

  1. Decide what route of led lights for staircases you want to go and pick the relevant led channel.
  2. Decide what color LED strip you want. We generally would recommend low power LED strip, from our DECOR Series for stairs to avoid having to use dimmers and excessive power supplies.
  3. Work out the total wattage of your installation as per the cut sheet of the LED strip.
  4. How do you power led under stair lights:-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.
