The LED Lighting System Your Cabinet Maker Needs to Know About

Quality, functionality, price and aesthetics all play a role when searching for under cabinet lighting. It’s hard to research and really understand each product line within the marketplace. After all, lighting is one of those weird products that can look one way to someone and completely the opposite to another.

If you are in the middle of a remodel or simply perusing for LED lighting benefits, this is the one to forward on to whomever is working on the project. The installer can get a grasp for what this system from Tresco Lighting really offers them. Tresco designs and manufactures a full line of superior quality LED lighting options that are UL/ETL listed.

It’s As Easy As 1-2-3

The Tresco LED lighting system revolves around a plug and play power supply, so no hardwiring is needed. An electrician isn’t necessarily required if wiring stays outside of the walls, but it never hurts to have a professional handling your project.

After the power supply, you need a controller that turns the lights on, off or dims them. Tresco Lighting offers a wide variety of round or rocker switches, sensors, wireless dimmers and more. Once a controller is decided upon, the LED light fixture is chosen. This system offers puck lights, stick or linear lights, tape lighting and other accent options.

A Truly Universal System

All Tresco LED lights are designed to work with a single 12V DC power supply. This is great for those who need to mix and match various light fixtures throughout a project. Rest assured that all Tresco lights are compatible with one another.

This interchangeability also allows you to change your LED lighting over time. If you decide after an install you need a different color temperature for a certain section, you know that these fixtures will co-exist.

The Tresco Lighting power supply will still need to be used and is only compatible with 12V DC Tresco light fixtures and components.

A Fixture for Any Application

Whether you are looking for an under cabinet, in-cabinet, toe kick, shelf, cove or closet light, Tresco has a number of LED fixtures to take a look at.

Under Cabinet Lighting

Under cabinet lights are commonly found in kitchens. They are not only functional, but are also aesthetically pleasing. Easily highlight decorative surfaces and make tasks like cooking and cleaning less challenging.

Puck lights and linear lights with wide beam spreads are recommended. By utilizing a large degree of beam angle you can get the most out of each light.

In-Cabinet Lighting

In-cabinet lighting is great for accenting your glassware, wine collection or antiques with glass doors.

Base cabinets can also utilize in-cabinet lighting with door sensors to light up dark corners or drawers. Tresco Lighting even has a “Lazy-Susan Light Kit” that is made specifically for those darker blind corner kitchen cabinets.

Toe Kick Lighting

Toe kick lighting can be used as an accent in bathrooms, kitchens and closets. Tresco Lighting’s FlexTape product is a tape light with adhesive backing that is generally used in these applications.

The long rolls of tape light allow installers to cover large projects. Choose from warm, neutral, cool or daylight LED temperatures. This product, like the puck lights and stick lights, work with Tresco’s plug ‘n play power supply.

Shelf Lighting

This application can either be decorative, as in the case of open shelving, or utility lighting when additional illumination is desired, such as dark or deep cabinet spaces.

Linear lighting, hidden behind the frame or recessed beneath the shelf, is most common.
