I purchased 4 x 395 nm strip lights, power pack, and dimmer for my home theater
The setup was a breeze although snapping the cover over the track was sometimes difficult if the strip itself was not centered in the track. Repositioning solved it
Unlike some reviews I have seen, the dimmer worked at all levels, even just above off
My only suggestion is higher power version so more than 4 strips can be run on a single circuit
I cut to length, removed the diffuser cover, drilled and countersunk holes, screwed the channels to the bottom of the cupboards through a couple of washers, soldered the low volts wiring, stuck the strips into the channel, replaced the covers and basked in the praise from my wife. I am a multi faceted craftsman of the retired guild. This is my first go round with the channels for under cupboard lights. Easy to work with. Do not forget to remove the scratch guard film from the plastic diffuser surface.
I used these to mount the centric home LED strips above the picture rail in our parlor. We have lathe/plaster walls and odd angles because it's an old house. The aluminum channels were super easy to cut and work with allowing for clean mitered edges. Also, the mounting brackets that allowed for easy removal of the channel segments allowed for us to install the channels really close to the top of the picture rail. This gave a visually cleaner look. To actually attach the brackets, we used 1/2" 3m VHB LSE mounting tape. This allowed us to avoid drilling through lathe and plaster.
Nice channel for when you don't want it sticking out very far.
One word of warning: I installed directly to wood using double sided tape (and FWIW, third party LED strip @ 3.1 W/ft power consumption) and the channel gets hot enough to be painful to touch. So using the provided mounting clips (which provide an air gap behind the channel) is probably a good idea if your situation supports it.
These channels are really nice: precisely milled, great fit of the diffuser, and strong enough to be self supporting for 2' easily. I'm using the flat ones to light the interior of kitchen drawers and they easily span the width if attached only at the ends.
The aluminum channel is just what I was looking for to complete the installation. Excellent quality and customer service.
Great quality products, quick delivery, and great customer service for any questions or concerns!
These channels work great for just about any direct or indirect lighting applications using LED strip lights
finally! a solution like none other.. i love that i dont see little dots with waveforms lighting..
