QolorFLEX is a carefully selected family of 40+ reliable and durable LED tapes, dimmers, and accessories for professional entertainment and architecture.
Each product is manufactured to our exact specifications. For example:
- LEDs are binned during manufacturing, and all reels are unspooled, rechecked for binning, accuracy, and quality before shipping.
- Each tape includes leads on both ends, which saves both time and money for lighting and scenic professionals.
- Ribbon cables are consistently manufactured in a logical RGB order for easy installation.
1. 24V LED Tapes Have Less Voltage Drop
2. Higher Voltage LED Tapes Are More Efficient
Each type of QolorFLEX LED Light Strip is identified by a part number which consists of 7 sets of characters. Each character set specifies a particular attribute of the tape. Please refer to the Part Number Key to confirm you order the product needed. For a brief description of the different tape attributes, refer to the TERMINOLOGY section below.
Refers to the actual chip size of the LED. In general, larger the chip size, the more light output is possible. Single color QolorFLEX LED Tape is available in 2 chips: 5050 (50mm x 50mm) and 3528 (35mm x 28mm). Multicolor QolorFLEX types (RGB, RGBA, RGBCW, RGBNW, RGBWW, RGBI) all use the 5050 chip. Our Adjustable White (WWCW) uses the 3528 chip size.
QolorFLEX is available in both 12 and 24 Volt configurations. 24 Volt strip allows for longer continuous runs and requires half the amperage of 12 Volt strip to operate.
QolorFLEX is available in a variety of different colors and combinations of colors. Single color white stripes are available in cool (CW), natural (NW), and warm (WW) color temperatures. Adjustable white (WWCW) has a combination of alternating cool and warm white chips which can be controlled to achieve a specific color temperature according to preference. Multicolor strips consist of RGB tricolor LEDs plus a fourth color (amber, cool, white, natural white, warm white, indigo) LED, which enables the mixed color output to be tuned and or balanced as needed.
QTY LED'S PER METER
This is the number of LEDs contained in a meter of tape. More LEDs produce more light output.
QolorFLEX is most commonly sold in full reels which contain 5 meters (16.4ft) of product. Each end of the strip sold this way has a soldered pigtail of color coded ribbon cable for attaching to dimming / power devices. For custom lengths less then 5 meters, "CTL" should be substituted when ordering, and the desired pigtail configuration discussed with our sales department as is needed. For an 18" sample length without pigtails use "0" as the length designation. Please contact your nearest dealer to help with custom quotes.
Indicates the approved use environment. IP 20 is Approved for indoor use only, IP 67 is Suitable for outdoor use.
Currently, all QolorFLEX Tape is available with a white (1) background color as a standard product.
|Light Boxes and Podium Lighting at the Democratic National Convention 2020 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin||“We chose the QolorFLEX 12v RGBCW LED Tape for the light boxes because it would work with our existing 12v custom dimmer assemblies and, more importantly, we had the confidence that it would be flicker-free and look great on camera.” - Philip Rheinheimer, Set Electrics Team Lead, PRG Scenic Technologies|

the back wall, behind the performers on stage. We wanted a bright neon sign that could change color, and be able to tour with the show. QolorFLEX NuNeon gives us what we wanted and needed – something bright, and colorful, with the flexibility and durability to last through our upcoming tour. We can have the sign stand out, or recede, based on similar or contrasting light color of the back wall. It is super bright, and really pops when we want it to. It gives us many layers of options.

|QolorFLEX NuNeon, RGB and Accessories, QolorFLEX RGB LED Tape, and QolorFLEX 4x2.5A Dimmers in Freaky Friday Presented by Coolidge Middle SchoolDrama Department in Reading, Massachusetts||
With a SHoW Baby 6 wireless DMX system already in place, the creative team for Freaky Friday was looking for a way to create an urban Chicago setting using bright, color-changing LED products that could be controlled wirelessly. With limited transition time between scenes and a cast including 55 middle schoolers and an additional 45 students working backstage, the ideal solution would not only add dimension and visual interest, but also require minimal relocation after installation, and be simple and safe to use in a high traffic area.
The script called for an oversized hourglass that would be “broken” in half on stage. This presented one of the largest challenges of the show to the creative team: Designing a prop that could create a magical effect, while using two separate lighting and wireless DMX control systems.
City Theatrical’s QolorFLEX NuNeon was selected as the lighting solution to outline the Chicago skyline that spanned the 40-foot-wide stage. The skyline was set in two layers, one at each wireless DMX controlled portal, to add dimension with color-changing RGB LEDs that have the look and brightness of traditional neon, but with easier setup and wireless DMX dimming control
