Grote XTL LED Lights Blue


Mar 13, 2018

While LED strip lights are by no means new, most offerings were designed for interior or light-outdoor use – not for outdoor marine use. Up until recently, LED strips were relatively thick and inflexible, making it difficult to conform to contoured surfaces or bend around tight corners.

Now, however, advances in thin-film LED technology are producing much brighter lighting, using paper-thin strips that are flexible enough to bend around corners and contours. Yet the lighting is rugged enough to stand up to a harsh marine environment, where saltwater, wind, waves, and storms can often be expected. Such LEDs can also be easily installed into the existing lighting power system or a supplied battery box. As a result, the number of applications and locations for LED safety and functional lighting is skyrocketing for maritime and watercraft use.

Experienced boaters have come to rely on the XTL Marine Kit by Grote Industries, a leading LED lighting manufacturer. Grote XTL LED Lights Drivers Seat

Designed specifically for boats and watercraft, the XTL is designed to meet or exceed established industry standards. This includes being waterproof, submersible, and capable of withstanding pressure washing with hot water, rather than just rain-resistant.

LEDs can also improve visibility for steps, floors, cabins, galleys, bathrooms, anywhere that needs more light.
