It's easy to create a custom light fixture with these components and our LED strip lighting. The 36" long aluminum channels are available in three profiles and can be fitted with a polymer cover to conceal the LEDs and diffuse the light output. They are particularly useful where installed lighting will be visible, such as on the underside of a shelf or in a display cabinet, or to soften lighting to eliminate reflective hotspots on a nearby surface. The channels and diffusers can be cut to length using a fine-tooth handsaw and run in sequence to create a longer fixture. To enclose the channels, end caps are available in pairs (one cap with a passage hole for wires). Metal mounting clips are also available separately.
 
Selecting a channel:
 
To select an appropriate channel style, consider the installation. The surface-mount channel is an easy retrofit to an existing construction and can be affixed to a surface using metal clips (available separately) or double-sided tape. This channel can also be friction fitted into an 11/16" wide dado.
 
The flush-mount channel is a good option for new construction where a low-profile, flush-mounted light is desirable. The channel friction fits in an 11/16" wide dado; the edges of the dado are concealed with the flanges on the channel. The channel can also be surfacemounted using double-sided tape or metal clips (available separately).
 
The corner channel, designed to present lighting at a 45° angle, is useful for projecting light against an adjacent surface. These channels are intended to be surface mounted only, using double-sided tape or metal clips (available separately).
 
Selecting a diffuser:
 
The diffusers are available with frosted (translucent) or opal (milky) surface finishes. The frosted diffuser allows good light transmission, but the LED lights are somewhat visible. The opal diffuser provides more uniform light diffusion and good LED concealment.
 
Note that each channel component is specific to the channel type; components cannot be interchanged. For example, diffusers and end caps for flush-mount channels cannot be fitted to surface-mount channels.

Need a Saw?
 
We found this to be an excellent saw for cleanly cutting through aluminum and plastic. The blade is 6-1/2" long by 1-1/8" deep and has 24 tpi (cuts a 0.014" kerf). The handle is lacquered maple. Made in USA.
