Bendable Profile 18 x 5.7mm, 2 Metre Length

SKU: TL-1857-2M Categories: , ,


This channel is made from high quality Aviation 6063-T5 aluminum alloy which is Double-Anodized and Corrosion-proof. It is designed to fit any of our flexible LED strips that are between 8 and 12mm wide. This special material allows you to bend the profile, ideal for bespoke projects and curved walls/tables/objects.

One of the accessories offered for the extrusion are covers that shade and protect LEDs inside the profile. Polycarbonate diffuser, standard polypropylene end caps and mounting brackets (made from steel with zinc or chrome finish) are used for the extrusion as supplementary accessories.

End caps protect the extrusion from dust which can make LED strips dirty and consequently deteriorate the lighting parameters.

The extrusion can be mounted to surfaces with the use of double-sided adhesive tape or mounting brackets. The mounting bracket guarantees easy and secure mounting of the extrusion to a desired surface. It can also be used as a connector between extrusions.
Please note: This aluminium channel does not come with a diffuser as standard, this 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
