Aluminium LED housings designed to accommodate larger amounts of high-powered LED strip lighting to create ultra-bright luminaires for primary lighting applications.
It depends. If your installation of LED strip is out of direct sight, in many cases you can install without profile. However, our aluminium profiles are great for:- Diffusing the light (takes away spotting).- Easier to clean, i.e., under kitchen cabinet.- Looks more professional.- Less likely to damage LED strip as it gives a reasonable amount of protection, i.e., best way to mound LED tape.
When you visit an LED profile product page, you will notice the dimensions of the profile in the description. You need to ensure the inside dimensions of the profile are wider than the LED strip lights.
You can simply butt together. For a more in-depth answer and how to get the best seamless end result, read the article on how to join LED profiles, here.
