With the development of LED technology in our time tree decoration has become very popular, it is no longer so expensive and very effective.
In this article we will analyze what is a clip of light, what it is and how to choose the right one and how to decorate your garden with it.
How to decorate your garden: what is clip-light?
Clip-light is an LED street light, which operates from a step-down transformer (it converts the current 220V to 24V, if the product is damaged, the shock will not occur) with an increased level of dust and moisture protection (IP not below 44), which makes it absolutely safe for people. It can be used in all weather conditions, operating range from -40 to +60 degrees. During operation, the diodes do not heat up or damage the wood.
How to decorate your garden: types of clip-light
The clip-light garland is very similar to a regular one and comes in standard sets of 30, 60 and 100 meters. They all come in 10 m or 20 m segments, connected in series to each other. The set comes with a step-down transformer. They work in a constant glow mode.
Clip-light Spider – these are ready-made sets for decoration. Apart from the transformer, they have a 3 or 5 ray splitter in the set.
They can be in modes:
- Constant glow (fixing).
- With the controller (chasing).
Garlands come on a wire made of PVC (it is recommended to decorate in the warm period, because with the onset of cold weather it hardens and can break during decoration), rubber or silicone (more adapted for installation in the cold season, they do not harden at temperatures below 20 degrees).
The garland can be connected in series, one after the other, if you plan to hang it on the branches in the old way (this method is also suitable for decorating a high-rise tree). With a long garland, it’s easy to dress up the tree – just wrap it on the trunk or randomly arrange it into branches.
If you are planning to decorate a branch tree, you need a clip-light rider, which comes with a 3 or 5-beam splitter. With the help of separate branches, you can draw each branch. The splitter can be placed in any part of the cliplight – both immediately after the transformer and between the garland threads.
The process of winding decoration does not require any technical devices, it is quite time consuming, but it is thanks to it that you can achieve the maximum effect in decoration. If you want to find yourself in a fairy tale – you have to work hard and carefully wind the wire on the branches, the more often – the brighter your magic tree will shine!
At the end of the season, it is advisable to remove the winding from the tree – it grows and tight wires can hurt it. If you plan to use such décor all year round – we recommend taking off the winding once a year and doing it again.
