NOVA™ MOUNTING CHANNEL KIT - SURFACE 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 can be mounted on practically any flat surface to give your project the finished look it deserves.
The Nova™ is made from aluminum and creates a beam angle of 80 degrees. It is a surface-mounted channel that can be paired with either a round or square cover, offering completely different finishings for lighting projects. This channel is also great for heat dissipation and lengthening the life of the LED strip light.
The added height of the covers is meant to produce a single line of light. Each cover option is available in two different diffusion levels (Clear and Matte), offering full diffusion for most products in our UltraBright™ Series with the Matte cover (please see compatibility charts for more information).
The Nova™ is compatible with all of our strips, even our high output LED strip lights, and it is wide enough to fit all of our Solderless Connectors with the exception of our ColorBright™ RGBW LED strip.

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 do 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.
