KEPLER™ MOUNTING CHANNEL KIT - RECESSED INSTALLATION
Flexfire 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 are sold in one meter pieces and can be mounted on practically any flat surface to give your project the finished look it deserves.
The Kepler™ is a surface-mounted channel compatible with most of our LED strip lights. It is made from aluminum and creates a beam angle of 60 degrees. Its height allows for great light diffusion, especially when it is paired with the Matte Cover.
Covers are available in three different diffusion levels (Clear, Frosted, and Matte), 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.
This channel can be mounted with clips and connectors that mount on the bottom groove of the extrusion. With these Kepler™ connectors, it is possible to achieve straight connections between channels, as well as 90-degree connections, 45-degree connections, and vertical connections. These connectors are sold separately.
The Kepler™ is compatible even with our high-output strips but it is not compatible with all Solderless Connectors, so some scenarios require lead soldering. (Please see compatibility charts for more information.)

Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the warranty on this channel?
We offer a six-year warranty on all our channels (this does not apply to KLUS channels).
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.
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.
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.
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.
How can I put the channel on a surface?
There are different options. Most of our channels come with mounting clips and screws, which is the easiest way of installing the channel on a surface. Depending on the type of channel, you can also use 3M tape, or screw the channel directly onto the surface.
