Aluminium channels, also called aluminium extrusion, are used to house LED strip lights for a variety of purposes. The first being to protect the LED strip from any unwanted contact and ensure their longevity. Being aluminium, they are also a great conductor of heat and help dissipate the heat created by high output LED strip lights, ensuring they last their full life.
Aluminium channels also aid with installation as channels can be mounted in various positions, locations, recessed or surface mounted, allowing the LED strip to be simply stuck inside the channels.
Lastly Aluminium channels also offer a better dispersion of light with their frosted diffuser, light is diffused and spread evenly. Aluminium channels can also reduce the glare of direct LED strip lights along with reducing hot spots.
Lights2you has a wide range of aluminium channels with varying shapes, sizes and colours. All prices are per metre but can be supplied up to 3m continuous if required or even custom sizes cut to specific measurements to accommodate custom joinery.
