LED wall washer is to let the light wash the wall like water. The effect here is that the LED wall washer hits the light on the wall, which is similar to the use of the floodlight, but the effect is softer. Moreover, LED line lights are mostly used to outline architectural outlines, or to make digital screen effects. Of course, they can also be installed in corners to allow lights to find the wall, but LED wall washers are more flexible.

LED-wall washers are mostly high-power products, and LED line lights are mostly low-power. Since the LED wall washer depends on the irradiation height, there is generally a certain distance from the wall, and the high-power LED wall washer is more suitable. Moreover, the LED line lights are contoured, and low power can be used. LED wall washer is difficult to dissipate heat and waterproof. Drainage and convection design are required. In the production process of LED wall washers, first use the wall washer glue filling machine for glue treatment, and then use glass glue on the glass cover. Bonded for structural waterproofing.

There are also differences between the two in terms of the use parameters of lighting fixtures. For example, in terms of the power of lighting fixtures, LED wall lights are mostly high-power, and LED line lights are mostly low-power.

When the LED wall washer is installed, it depends on the height requirements of the lighting, and there must be a certain interval with the wall. Only a high-power LED wall washer can do it. Moreover, the power of LED line lights is small, which is difficult to achieve. Moreover, LED wall washers are more difficult in terms of heat dissipation and waterproofing, and more careful planning is required.

The wall-washing lamps have improved the basic functions of line lamps: light-gathering, glue filling, and waterproof IP67, various possibilities to achieve lighting effects.

The LED wall washer is obvious, it has a bracket that can be flexibly adjusted as needed, and has a large size, while LED line lights rarely have such a large size. In addition, most of the LED line lights are square, and the design of the LED wall washer is not fixed due to its bracket.
