A plaster-in LED profile, also known as a trimless LED profile, is a specialized type of LED housing designed to be seamlessly integrated into plastered surfaces like walls and ceilings. They are popular choices for modern, minimalist interiors and offer a sophisticated and streamlined lighting solution.
The process of installing a plaster-in LED profile involves embedding the profile into the plaster before it dries. Once the plaster is dry, the LED strip can be installed into the profile, resulting in a lighting fixture that is flush with the surrounding surface, with no protruding elements.
This flush installation allows the light to blend seamlessly with the architecture, creating a clean, sleek look that accentuates the architectural features of the space. It also ensures that the lighting fixture itself doesn't become a focal point, but rather enhances the overall aesthetic of the interior design.
Plaster-in LED profiles are suitable for both residential and commercial applications. They are ideal for creating soft ambient lighting, highlight features, or providing practical task lighting. They can be installed in various settings, including living rooms, kitchens, hallways, bathrooms, offices, galleries, or retail spaces.
However, the installation of plaster-in LED profiles requires planning and professional execution. Due to their integration into the building fabric, it's more challenging to move or adjust them once installed compared to other types of LED profiles.
As with other LED profiles, plaster-in profiles also offer the benefits of heat dissipation for the LED strips, prolonging their lifespan, and often include a diffuser to distribute light evenly and reduce glare.
