icicles

Icicles hanging from roof tops and guttering are integral to what we perceive as a 'proper' winter, so it is no surprise that they feature in our Christmas decorations.

Konstsmide replicate the real thing with a 500cm (16ft 5ins) length of 50 warm white highly realistic acrylic icicles. You can extend the effect as the set is compatible with the Konstsmide 24v extendable LED light system, and the icicles can also be linked to different lights within that system.

Chasing And Snowing

Premier's Chasing Icicle Lights consist of 24 icicles strung over 7m (23ft) of cable. With a built in chasing effect, the LEDs may be mesmerising and long lasting but they are also very energy and cost efficient. 

The same manufacturer's Snowing Icicles are available in several different sets. The most basic has a choice of 5 or 7 metre strings of 180 or 240 LEDs regulated by a control box.

Their low voltage Supabrights set is intensely colourful and fitted with a speed controller, you can choose from lengths between 4.8 metres and 23.8 metres with 180 to 960 LEDs.

Multi-Action

Premier Multi-Action Nite Lites are available in the same lengths as their Supabrights and the warm white, ice white and multi-coloured LEDs can be controlled either remotely or by a light sensor  

The effects that can be achieved include fading, slow glowing, twinkling and flashing, or a combination of these. There's a timer function to activate the lights automatically at sunset and also a memory function.

See for yourself how Icicle Lights can transform your home and garden with superb effects, proving that it doesn't have to be a freezing cold winter outside to enjoy a traditional Christmas landscape..
