Aluminium LED strip light extrusions help to prevent contact damage if the LED tape is positioned within easy reach. And though they are not waterproof, extrusions can help prevent moisture. (For more protection against water, consider installing IP67 LED tape in the extrusions.)
InStyle LED stocks a range of extrusion profiles, each offering different advantages. They include our optic lens extrusion, which actually ‘throws’ light further by narrowing the LED tape’s light beam – and our recessed extrusion, which adds a plush finish to your LED strip lights.
What’s the difference between LED Extrusions & LED Profiles?
There is no difference. The terms ‘aluminium extrusion’ and ‘aluminium profile’ are interchangeable.
What types of LED Extrusions are available?
Where to use LED Extrusions
Our aluminium extrusions can enhance and improve all kinds of LED strip light installations. They are an ideal addition in restaurants, hotels, bars, and clubs.
What is the length of an LED Extrusion?
As well as our standard LED strip lights, we also offer splash-proof (IP65) or fully waterproof (IP67) tapes, sealed with heatshrink coatings.
If you choose to cut one of our IP67 tape lengths yourself, it will no longer be guaranteed water resistant… but you can fully reseal the tape back to its original protection rating by using a heat gun and heatshrink.
How to install an LED Extrusion
Extrusions can be fixed in place using countersink screws, straight into the extrusion. Alternatively, you can purchase fixing brackets if you prefer. These can be attached in place, and once they are in position, your extrusion can be clipped onto them.
