Waterproof LED lighting has become an important lighting source for the maritime industry. It is used for a variety of purposes, from improving safety conditions on deck by installing continuous LED light lines to highlighting characteristic features or simply to enhance the inviting ambience of a living area. The liniLED System has been designed to offer a versatile solution for all these scenarios.

The liniLED System is a concept that consists of many high-end LED luminaires, including a wide range of flexible IP68/IP69K submersible LED strips. All the products are dimmable, with low power consumption and European quality, design and manufacturing. Designed to withstand the most severe weather conditions and hazardous environments, the liniLED top and side emitted LED strips are provided with a special co-extrusion technology.

By introducing the opportunity to preassemble the LED strips with a unique IP68/IP69K mirror welded connector, the indoor and outdoor possibilities are endless – even underwater. All products within the range have various complementing mounting, connecting and control options, while a special selection are also UV, chlorine and seawater resistant. The Diffuse LED strip range comes with the special IP68/IP69K connector as standard. Thanks to their beautiful homogenous light effect, the liniLED Diffuse LED strips fit into nearly every interior and exterior.

The liniLED LED strip assortment is available in various luminous intensities and lighting colours (2,000K up to 6,500K, tunable white, RGB, red, green, blue and amber), in lengths from 5 centimetres to 20 metres.
