LAIKA™ MOUNTING CHANNEL KIT - SURFACE 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 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 Laika™ is a shallow profile suitable for surface-mounting our LED strip lights. It is paired with a wrap-around cover - available in two different diffusion levels, allowing users to maintain a low profile while providing diffusion to the lights.
This channel is made from aluminum and creates a beam angle of 110 degrees. It is compatible with all of our strips, even our high output LED strip lights, but please note that our LED strip solderless connectors are too large to fit inside this channel. (Please see compatibility charts for more information.)
Covers are available in two different diffusion levels (Clear and Frosted), and 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
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 Frosted 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.
