Great product and easy to work with / install. I used the flat channels for two 8 foot strips of the Centric Home LED Strip Lights on either side of a beam for indirect lighting in a large room. I had to shorten one channel, as I was laying down 8 foot sections, but that was easy work with a hacksaw. The channels were very easy to line up and the LED's were easy to lay in the channel. The opaque covers are stronger than they appear, as I had to give them a pretty good bump to seat them. The channels mated up close enough that you cannot tell that there are 3 channels lined up in each direction, and the clips hold the channels solidly and close to the surface. I will be doing a similar setup in another room.
Purchased channels to overhang a whiteboard, and the result turned out very nice.
Very nice quality light, and the modular nature of this product is fantastic. Strip + aluminum track makes for very cost effective hidden strip/cove lighting. The clip-on connectors are great, although note that they don’t fit within the aluminum track.
Excellent customer service! After a shipping box opened in transit and part of my order was lost, they worked hard to expedite a replacement order with rush shipping at no extra cost, and kept my project on schedule. Great communication and follow-up from sales. The aluminum flat channels are nice. Very thin and lightweight, but sturdy. Fits the light strips perfectly, but have to solder connections to use the included end caps as their clip-on connectors won't fit. The diffusers work well.
Great company to work with. They are communicative during the whole purchasing process and all of their products are as they say they are. Been using the flat channel and the angled channel with their 95 cri 3000k tape and 4500 tape with much success. Powered by their power supplies and even using their dimmers. Solderless connections are exceptional aside from the ends not fully fitting in the flat channel. Would recommend to others and have been recommending to others.
A few points that may be obvious to everyone else. You must use a channel! The strip light glue is not removable. If you don't use a channel you have to throw it away to move it. Also the mounting brackets are a huge help in making this work.
The channel was the hardest part of my install since it wasn't hidden in my orientation so every gap is visible. Putting two of them together is hard. I cut the channel to use the connectors but that was hard as well. Installing the channels well is the difference between a good and bad install.
Last point: the brackets lift the channel above the surface. When I realized this I recessed (using a chisel) the brackets so the channel would be flush with the surface. The first one I put down doesn't do this, maybe someday I'll fix it :(
The diffusion works pretty well, I used the flat ones not corner. Mine point up, pointing down might be more of a problem.
Just what I was looking for.
Like the idea of being able to cut and solder every 2" or so to prevent dead spots. Great quality.
Easy to use. Fits the light strip perfectly.
