A 2-meter LED aluminum profile is a commonly used size for LED strip lighting installations. An LED aluminum profile, also known as an LED aluminum channel or LED extrusion, is designed to house and protect LED strip lights from dust and other elements, which can extend the life of the LED strip.
They are typically used in various lighting applications such as under-cabinet lighting, staircase lighting, ceiling lighting, and more. Their 2-meter length is convenient for many applications, as it provides sufficient lighting while maintaining a sleek and professional look.
These profiles often come with diffusers, end caps, and mounting clips to aid with installation. The diffusers help in spreading light evenly and reducing the glare produced by the LED strip lights. End caps provide a neat finish at the ends of the profile, and mounting clips aid in the installation process.
Choosing a 2-meter LED aluminum profile is mainly determined by the length of the LED strip light you plan to install. Make sure to measure the intended area accurately before buying to ensure the profile will fit as required. If the area is longer than 2 meters, multiple profiles can usually be linked together to reach the desired length.
Remember to ensure your chosen LED strip lights are compatible with the profile. Check the internal width of the profile and the width of the LED strip to ensure they will fit together. LED strips typically come in widths of 8mm (for single colour or dimmable LED strips) and 10mm or 12mm (for RGB colour changing strips).
Finally, the style and finish of the profile should complement the overall design of your space. LED aluminum profiles come in a variety of styles and finishes, including surface-mounted, recessed, corner, and pendant styles, and can come in colours like silver, black, and white.
