Aluminum Profiles (also known as aluminum channels or extrusions) are used with LED Strips to create unique and dynamic lighting fixtures that can be used in areas that are hard to light with traditional bulbs. This profile is specifically designed to sit on the edge of stairs to illuminate stair edges. Many environments are now requiring lights on the stairs as part of safety code, and these profiles are a fantastic solution. They are also incredibly stylish and are safe to step on with the extra grip supplied. The profile houses up to 12mm wide of LED strip.
