Extra Deep V2 Profile Channel, Black, 3 Metre Length

SKU: 1816-BLK/3M Categories: ,


With a depth of 18mm, our Extra Deep V2 Channel is perfect for recessing at an even deeper level than our V1 channel. This taller channel will also prevent any visible spotting of the LEDs when using LED Tape with only 60 leds per metre.

These Recessed Flat Aluminium Channels are suitable for housing and protecting our LED strips. They allow a flush install into grooves or furniture pieces as well as prevent the much unwanted secondary refraction from reflective surfaces. They also act 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 or semi-transparent diffuser which helps diffuse the light from each LED in a much more uniform pattern and also prevents any glare or secondary refraction from occurring.
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
