Our biggest selling aluminium channel, this the 17x8mm profile is suitable for just about any project you can imagine. An ideal choice for display units, false ceilings, under kitchen units and more. Suitable for both dry and damp locations.
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.
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
