aluminium channel for under cupboard lights

Why should not use LED strip without aluminium channels

Do aluminium channels help LED strips when used for kitchen under cupboard lighting?

Yes, aluminium channels can help with LED strips in a few different ways:

Protection: Aluminium channels provide a protective casing for LED strips, helping to prevent damage from dust, moisture, oil and other environmental factors that can be found in a normal kitchen. This can extend the lifespan of the LED strip and help it to function more reliably over time.

Heat dissipation: LED strips can generate heat, which can affect their performance and lifespan. Aluminium channels can help to dissipate this heat, allowing the LED strip to operate at a lower temperature and reducing the risk of overheating.

Diffusion: Some aluminium channels have a frosted or diffuse cover, which can help to soften the light emitted by the LED strip and create a more uniform and appealing glow. Also the lights will have a dotless appearance compared to led strip alone.

Installation: Aluminium channels can make it easier to install LED strips in a variety of locations, such as under cabinets, along staircases, or in outdoor areas. They can help to conceal the LED strip and create a more polished and professional appearance.

In summary, aluminium channels can be a useful accessory for LED strips, providing protection, heat dissipation, diffusion, and easier installation.
