What is the Skirt10 LED channel?
Skirt10 is a skirting or baseboard lighting channel with a reflective cove in the profile which is designed to allow LED lighting to shine indirect light onto the floor. This channel is ideal for accent illumination in passageways, hallways and corridors. It can also be used for baseboard accent lighting in kitchens. The baseboard or skirting lighting system consists of a base profile which is mounted to the wall and houses the LED strip, and a cover profile which is clipped on after installation. This profile is available in anodized silver or white.
