One of our most popular LED channels! Aluminum Profile "Y3" can be used to create beautiful 3" wide recessed lighting. High capacity makes this housing suitable for general lighting applications. It can be seamlessly installed to make continuous runs of evenly diffused lighting up to any length (use joining hardware). It can be used in homes, offices, and commercial spaces and is adaptable with almost any design or space.

With aluminum profile "Y3", one must have the required minimum depth (1.375"). The housing can be screwed directly into framing or solid ceiling above the drywall or can be installed using drywall retaining clips.

Mounting Method #1 (Direct Screw)

  1. Create hole specific to your mounting screw diameter in the center of the housing. If using a single row of high-output LED tape make sure to counter-sink hole so screw will sit flush with housing.

  2. Anchor housing to framing or solid ceiling using screws.

  3. Install LED strip over mounting screw (if applicable).

Mounting Method #2 (Drywall Retaining Clips)

  1. Create cavity for lighting. Note: spring activated clips require 4" of clearance from cavity to solid ceiling, and 3" from center of profile to framing (opens up inside ceiling).

  2. Squeeze clips together as you install light fixture so they can go inside of cavity. As recessed LED housing is inserted, clips will engage and "latch" onto drywall inside of your ceiling.

To cut your aluminum profiles and make your lighting fixtures a custom length, simply snap the lens onto the profile, and place the channel onto a miter saw with the lens facing down. By doing this you can easily cut both the channel and lens to your desired length at the same time.

To achieve dot-free evenly diffused lighting in Aluminum Profile "Y3" choose from the following DOTLESS LED strips. For the best effect we recommend using two rows of LED strips.

3 of 5 Didn't Ship On Time May 13, 2021
Reviewer: porter lighting from ADDISON, TX United States  
We chose 2nd Day Air for our order - we submitted it on Tuesday thinking it would ship out on Wednesday and be here on Friday. It shipped on Thursday and we received it on Monday and our customer was not happy! We were still charged 2nd-day air . I called and they told me the shipping manager was going to call me but never received a call
