Calypso™ Mounting Channel Kit - Recessed Installation

$10.00 - $270.00

Calypso Mounting Channel for recessed installation



Flexfire LEDs Channel Kits are designed with you in mind to ensure that your strip light lives a long, healthy life. By acting as a heat sink and providing a barrier from dust and debris, aluminum channels can extend the life of your strip light while also making maintenance simple. The channels can be mounted on practically any flat surface to give your project the finished look it deserves.

The Calypso is a broad profile suitable for recess-mounting our LED strip lights. Available in two different diffusion levels, this channel allows users to maintain a low profile while providing protection to your lights.

This channel is made from aluminum and creates a beam angle of 95 degrees. It is compatible with all of our strips and all of our strip connectors making it one of our most versatile channels yet!

Covers are available in two different diffusion levels, Frosted and Matte. They are made of polycarbonate and are UV resistant. End caps and mounting clips are included with this product for ease of installation and additional ones can also be purchased separately.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What’s the warranty on this channel?

We offer a six-year warranty on all our channels (this does not apply to KLUS channels).

Q: Will I see spots if I use a cover with this channel?

It depends on what LED strip light you're using. Brightness and a large amount of chips per foot are the two main factors that contribute to a seamless line of light. You can get more information by taking a look at our Diffusion Chart, but in most cases, the Matte Cover eliminates dark spots and creates a continuous line of light.

Q: What if I only need to purchase extra accessories for my channel?

Accessories are available for each channel as standalone items for purchase under the dropdown of each channel's product page.

Q: If the LED strip light solderless connectors fo not fit inside the channel, what options do I have?

You can solder the leads on the LED strip light.

Q: Can I put your high output strips, like the UltraBright Industrial Series, and the UltraBright Render Series, inside this channel?

You can use the Render and the Industrial Series with this channel, but not all channels are the same. Please check the Compatibility chart for LED strips for more information.
