These Recessed Flat Aluminium Channels allow for a flush install into grooves or furniture pieces as well as being designed to avoid any undesirable refraction from reflective surfaces. They also work as a heat sink for them as well, which in turn will increase the LEDs lifetime as well as slowing down any brightness degradation over time.

Each channel is available with either a frosted, transparent or semi-transparent diffuser which is designed to diffuse the light from each LED in a uniform pattern and also prevents any glare or secondary refraction from occurring.

These channels can help create sleek and completely bespoke LED strip lighting installations.

-Next Day Delivery from £15.54 inc VAT (Order before 4pm - Next Working Day)

Please note: The diffuser and end caps for this aluminium channel will need to be purchased seperately.

Diffusers will affect the brightness of LED tapes when installed, as a general guide, please see the information below on how much the brightness is affected by each type of diffuser.

Transparent: 5-10% of the brightness will be taken away

Semi-Clear: 25-30% of the brightness will be taken away

Opal: 50-55% of the brightness will be taken away

Black: 65-70% of the brightness will be taken away

The use of diffusers will also alter the Kelvin Temperature of the LED Tape by approximately 10%. Opal diffusers will make the Kelvin Temperature/CCT appear warmer, Semi clear diffusers will make the Kelvin Temperature/CCT appear cooler.
