Light Channel .3 Surface Mount

Start the ordering process by selecting the desired length and lens option. Then order the LED Soft Strip, End Caps, Power Feed Joiner, and Jumper. At 0.35 inches tall the channel is low profile, made of paintable aluminum, and fits a 24VDC LED Soft Strip inside. The channel and lens may be cut in the field, and may be joined together using the Light Channel Snap & Light Solderless Jumper/Power Connector. Mounting Clips are included with every 2 feet of channel, and may be ordered separately as replacement parts. The Clear Lens provides maximum light levels and will show LED dots. The Diffuser Lens will reduce LED dots but will not eliminate them. To eliminate LED does use Light Channel .6 Surface Mount with a Diffuser Lens. Both the Clear and Diffuser Lens are Gel Color Filter Suitable allowing for color personalization. Zircon LED Gel filters are recommended and can be purchased from the dealer www.leefilters.com. Gel filter life is 5,000 hours before needing to be changed.
