There are two different types of EL tape and panels, Split and Parallel. The main difference between them is that Split EL Tape is a more commercial grade product made in long reels, which is perfect for linear accents, backlighting translucent stone like Onyx, advertising, retail applications and much more. It can be cut at any length and provides a brilliant light in dark environments, which makes wayfinding a perfect application for Split EL Tape. EL Tape is long lasting and extremely energy efficient, and when comparing to Neon or LED's, the power consumption is approximately 1/20th (Neon) or 1/4th(LED).
In short, Split Tape is perfect for bars, nightclubs, advertising, billboards, retail and trade show displays, movie theaters, pop-up shops, experiential marketing and more.
