This is the narrowest Profile LED Technologies have to offer, suitable for IP20 rated LED Strips up to a PCB width of 8mm. This profile is small and discreet which makes it perfect for accent lighting. Having a width of only 10mm and a depth of 11mm it can be used in tight areas where there is little space.
An internal dimension of 8.6mm means it will only cater for the narrow LED strips. A range of LED Strips Lights we do that would fit in this would be our model flex range. A good example of where this aluminium LED Profile could be used would be a staircase bannister or surface mounted to a skirting board.
As well as providing a sturdy housing this LED profile also acts as a high-quality heat sink to dissipate heat. Brighter LED Strips tend to emit more heat than lower-powered strips. Because of this, it is important that the more powerful LED strips are mounted into a profile for this reason.
Mounting your LED lighting strips inside this profile is a quick and easy process. Simply peel off the sticky tape from the LED strip and carefully place it within the LED profile. All of our profiles come supplied with all the accessories required, these include:
- LED Strip diffuser
- Diffuser end caps
- Mounting clips
- Mounting brackets
One of the main benefactors of using LED aluminium profiles is that it will extend the life of the LED tape installed. LED Technologies offer a range of different styles of profiles, from recessed LED profiles to corner LED profiles.
LED Strip Profiles help to protect the LED strips from dust and dirt and they also soften the light from the LEDs reducing glare. Aluminium profiles are easy to clean and will also provide protection from cleaning materials. Commonly used cleaning materials can easily damage the LED Strips.
