RGB LED Strip Diffuser

RGB LED strip diffuser has become more and more popular as color changing LED strips have been widely used for commercial and residential lighting projects. We offer many models of RGB LED strip diffuser and channel. How to choose the right one for your RGB or RGBW LED strip light project? We list several considerations here for both DIY users and professionals.

Top 7 things you need to know before choosing LED strip channel.

Why choose RGB LED strip diffuser and channel?

There are three major reasons for choosing LED channel and diffuser for RGB or RGBW LED strip project.

RGB Strip Diffuser






1. RGB LED strip diffuser and channel help mount the RGB LED strips. In certain area, it would be difficult to mount the LED strip directly to the mounting surface, such as concrete, drywall, ceiling. If stick the LED strip directly to these types of surface, the bonding between the LED strip and the surface may be not strong enough to hold the LED strip for long lasting installation. At this time the LED strip channels come into play.

2. LED strip channels work as heat sink, offer better heat dissipation, and provide better heat management of the RGB or RGBW LED strip. This will be good to the lifetime of the LED strips.

3. RGB LED strip diffuser and channel deliver better diffusion effects for RGB or RGBW LED strips.

It is easy and natural to select the RGB or RGBW LED channel and diffuser for the function of installation assistance and better heat dissipation. However, it is not so natural to get the right diffusion effects. Before buying RGB LED strip diffuser and channel, we recommend you read the following reference for the diffusion effect.

The diffusion effect of RGB LED strip diffuser and channel

The diffusion effect of RGB LED strip channel and diffuser

Many times the RGB or RGBW LED strip project requires a good diffusion effects, such as dotless lighting, or acceptable vague light dots. If that is the case, please use the below reference of selecting RGB LED strip diffuser and channel.

NOTE: The general reference below is based on using frosted diffuser. And the RGB, RGBW and RGBCCT LED nodes are based on those used on our LED strip lights. They are the integrated all-in-one types, not the alternatively-placed ones you may see on the markets.


The relationship between the RGB LED strip diffuser and channel and the LED density of RGB, RGBW, RGBCCT LED strips

Below is a reference as what RGB LED strip diffuser and channel to use to get dotless strip lighting.

RGB LED strips

60 LEDs/m - LED strip channel height 20.5 mm

84 LEDs/m - LED strip channel height 14.5 mm

120 LEDs/m - LED strip channel height 12 mm

RGBW LED strip (also known as RGB + White LED strip)

60 LEDs/m - LED strip channel height 20.5 mm

84 LEDs/m - LED strip channel height 14.5 mm

120 RGB + 2 x 160 White LEDs/m - LED strip channel height 12 mm

RGBCCT LED strip (also known as RGB + Tunable White LED strip)

60 LEDs/m - LED strip channel height 20.5 mm

84 LEDs/m - LED strip channel height 14.5 mm

Note: the LED strip channel height refers to the distance between the LED strip (e.g. the light source) to the frosted diffuser.

RGB LED strip diffuser channel and RGBW LED strip of super high LED density

To achieve the best diffusion effects by using lower RGB LED strip diffuser channel, we offer a specially designed RGBW LED strip with super high LED density. It features one row RGB LEDs and two rows of white LEDs. Its LED density is as high as 120 RGB + 2 x 160 White LEDs/meter.

To achieve dotless lighting, it can use RGB LED strip channel that is only 12 mm (0.47) high. This gives a lot of choices for selecting the LED strip channel and diffusers.

This RGBW LED strip has super high brightness for both RGB color changing light and white light. Its white light offers as high as over 3000 lumen per meter, which is over 900 lumen per foot. This super RGBW strip light is the choice for big space or rooms.

No diffusion requirement on RGB LED strip diffuser and channel

If the project does not need to consider the diffusion effect of the RGB or RGBW LED strip lights, how to choose the right RGB LED strip diffuser and channel? The factors to consider would be the width and height of the LED channels. As long as the width fit the LED strips and the height is easy for installation space, it can be a good choice.

If you are going to use LED strip connectors and place the connectors inside the LED channel, you need to consider the width for both the LED strips and the connectors.
