You should be able to use it both indoors

cutting length depends on voltage. The low voltage version can usually
cut in 3" or 4" (inch) sections. Cutting units for high voltage
LED neon are typically 1.5 ' or
2.5 ' (foot.) These dimensions are good for planning, especially for lighting up
large letter signs.
Before executing the job, check exact sizes on the propriatory Manual

efficient lights here.
want to illuminate existing signs with a U shape section, can I use
these neon rope lights?
First, I assume these are transparent or at least translucent signs,
such as large letters. You can light up those if
the U shape (called channel) have a wide enough web (this is
the bottom of the channel when you look inside.) However, if you want
to light up a narrow channel sign, LED neon ropes will be a little
tedious to use as the bending radius is about 4cm min. Use instead LED
Or you can even have a
chasing pattern - a hypnotic customer magnet -
if you use LED rope lights of course.
