Shallow V2 Channel 16×6.3mm, Black, 3 Metre Length

SKU: 1663-BLK-3M Categories: ,


This popular choice of standard aluminium channel is ideal for almost any project be it a kitchen, bar or an office. These Recessed Flat Aluminium Channels with no trim 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.

Available with either a frosted, semi-clear or 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
