The VBD-CH-RS5 LED Aluminum Channel is a popular choice for cabinets, shelves, closets, staircase, decorative, and vanity lighting applications. It is made of anodized aluminum in a Silver Grey color and comes in two lengths: 2.4 meters (94.4 inches) and 3 meters (118 inches), depending on the place of delivery. The channel is compatible with LED strip widths of up to 12mm and includes a frosted polycarbonate diffuser material that reduces light glare and protects the LEDs from dust and damage. The dimensions of the channel are 3000 x 17.62 x 8.18mm (118 x 0.7 x 0.32in) and 2400 x 17.62 x 8.18mm (94.4 x 0.7 x 0.32in).
The VBD-CH-RS5 LED Aluminum Channel acts as a heat sink for the LED strip installed in it, thereby increasing the lifetime of the LEDs. It can be recessed in a groove or mounted onto the surface using double-sided tape or screws. The channel comes with a pair of end caps with wiring holes.
The VBD-CH-RS5 LED Aluminum Channel is suitable for indoor and outdoor projects and can be cut using a regular hack saw. When used for outdoor purposes, it is recommended to use waterproof strip lights with an IP 66 rating or higher, and to seal the endcaps with silicone to prevent contact with water. The diffuser material is resistant to UV rays and moisture. The VBD-CH-RS5 LED Aluminum Channel is also available in Black Color in the same size.
