IP20 Strip Lighting
The IP20 rating officially stands for “touch by fingers No protection”. The 2 in IP20 stands for being able to withstand basic touch and rudimentary dust protection. It won’t survive hard impacts or anything like that, but you can safely touch it with your fingers. The 0 in IP20 stands for no water protection whatsoever. These LED strips also provide the best amount of cooling since both the front of the strip and the back of the strip are non-obstructed, so heat can go both ways which means IP20 strips generally last the longest. The LEDs are also able to shine brightest and most brilliantly because there is nothing obstructing them or to color the LEDs differently.
That means these LED strips are ideally suited to be used indoors, but probably won’t last all too long outdoors (even if protected).
