What a LED extrusion/profile is and how to use it

LED Extrusion

Lighting strips have sometimes been problematic for home decoration, but now LED strip lights can be incorporated in a variety of ways that will expand your creative options. 

It has never been easier to mount LED strip lights.  In addition to being used indoors and outdoors, these strips can also be used in the basement. 

Extrusions from KLUS can be used for any lighting application you need, whether it is indoors or outdoors.

Aside from their practical benefits, extrusions are also aesthetically pleasing.  Furthermore, they act not only as a connection between the strips of light and the surface to which they will be attached, but also serve to create a finished and stylish appearance for the LED light. 

Strip lights can be mounted on a wall, shelf, cabinet, or another stable surface of any kind.  You can also cut the extrusions to the exact length needed, just as you can with the lighting fixtures.

Additionally, extrusions offer other benefits.  Because these LED lights are waterproof, they can be installed near water outlets. 

In addition to protecting the strip lights from water, this will ensure that the lights can be used outside without worrying about being wet from rain, snow, or other forms of possible weather damage.

Extrusion of LEDs – what is it?

A Led drywall extrusion is a type of casing that contains LED strip lights. LED lighting is typically contained within aluminum extrusions which make it safe.
