Plaster-in wall washer LED aluminium channels, particularly those of dimensions 85mm x 70mm, offer a number of benefits and potential applications. They're designed to embed LED strip lights into walls or ceilings to create a seamless and contemporary look.
When considering the use of plaster-in wall washer LED aluminium channels, it's essential to plan in advance, as the installation process requires integration into the wall or ceiling structure. It's also recommended to work with a lighting designer or a professional to achieve the best results.
Hints and tips:
Diffusers will affect the brightness and CCT (colour temperature) of an LED tape when housed in a LED channel or profile. With a semi-clear diffuser 70-75% of the brightness of the installed LED strip light will shine through.
As well as the brightness, diffusers will also alter the kelvin temperature of the installed LED strip light by approximately 10%. Opal diffusers will make the kelvin temperature/CCT appear warmer, semi clear diffusers will make the Kelvin Temperature/CCT appear cooler and transparent diffusers will have no effect.
As an example, a 6000K 1000 lumen per metre LED strip light installed inside a metre length of LED channel using an opal diffuser would create a light bar with an overall output of approximately 5600K and 450 to 500 lumens.
To achieve a highly desired non-spotting finish, consider using this profile with an LED tape of more than 120 LEDs per metre or a COB LED strip light. The more LEDs per metre on your chosen strip light, the less chance there will be of a spotting/dotting effect.

Perfect for indoor use.
This profile is made from fully anodized aluminium and is corrosion proof; meaning it's ideal for using indoors in dry and damp environments such as bathrooms, when installed using a suitably IP-rated LED strip light.
