    Used planet lighting but there are plenty on the market since - will be interesting to hear others replies. I need some for a job soon so I'll be following this one.

    Just been fitting the Ansell cobra tape on a job in cool white which has come up really well. I'll take a picture tomorrow when I finish it off. You can buy it in different lengths and then also cut it down at approx 3-4cm intervals. It is plug and play but there is a little bit of soldering required if you need to bring in right angle bends etc

    I use hiline-lighting. High cri, good quality strips and drivers. I only use the 24v strip, i don't think they even do a 12v strip. Not the cheapest but you get what you pay for, a lot of strip you can buy won't even tell you what their cri is because it's so low, let alone the other details. All the info on their website so you know what you're getting isn't budget manufactured rubbish.

    Hello Guys,

    I applied for Electrician work. I was asked to provide ECS card and IPAF card but unfortunately I don't have IPAF card. I called the providers but they seems not to know what type of IPAF training I required.
    Please can anyone help me here. Even when I checked, there is upto 8 IPAF.

    Thanks ...

    Shouldn't you start your own thread somewhere else?

    You'll need 3a3b for normal work. Check out the 'Nationwide' site for all IPAF stuff. Then learn how to start your own thread and not just push buttons!
    All the best!

    @tomspark93@tomspark93 looks great, very clean an clinical, coolwhite has its place. This is one I did a few months back using the hiline lighting kit. RGBW kit controlled on zwave rgbw dimmers. The under cabinet strips were supposed to light the glass up, but the glass fitter got the depth wrong so the extrusions were in the wrong palce, doesnt look too bad though. 20161128_093952.jpg 20161128_094017.jpg 20161128_094112.jpg

    Ooo
    I do love some pretty pictures.
    Looks very smart.

    Only ever get basic kitchens. Few sockets here or there maybe a few triangular led under cabs if it's really posh:D

    Stummish wins the prize for number of different light sources in a small space. Looks pretty though.

    @Leader@Leader I know, customers get what they ask for if they insist! I'd have just had the strip and the pendants myself.

    Just as an aby, did the room have a high ceiling height? Most of the kitchens I've, would never be able to fit that split level ceiling in.

    Feeling inspired by this to step out of my rut and have a go with the led strip lighting, but I'm a bit put off with the step change in parts - have I got out of bed on the wrong side today?
    I pick a brand (Ansell looked good), buy the tape, then a few transformers (because it's never one run of cabinets), then some cables, then some connectors then some corners then some profiles and then some other profiles then some mounting clips and maybe some 90 degree connectors, they look good. And then I see myself getting to the job and having a dooh moment (shoulda bought more of ...). Is there a grab and go kit?

    Know what you mean Wilko.

    I'm not really impressed with the 3M adhesive tape LED's, and the extrusion can knock up the price. So IMO would not use the adhesive tape stuff for under cabinet, with steam etc in kitchens. I tend to use Axiom LED Strip Lights for under cabinet, but then its not colour changing, dimmable etc.

    I've only had one customer so far that wanted colour changing u/c lights, but he wanted to do that himself, so I just provided the lighting points, and never got to see the end results.
