The Direct Wire Under Cabinet LED Fixture is a popular under cabinet fixture that features a sleek, clean design with superior lighting capabilities. It offers a simple one piece installation and maintenance-free performance for up to 50,000 hours. This stylish fixture comes in a sturdy aluminum housing with a glossy, powder-coated white finish, and is available in 3 sizes to fit your individual lighting needs.
Our under cabinet fixture emits very little heat but shines brightly with a warm white color of light that is comparable to the color of halogen under cabinet lights. The diffuser lens of this high-quality light fixture is made of glass and spreads the LED light evenly without diminishing the brightness of the superior Nichia LED chips.
This Under Cabinet LED Fixture is powered by standard 120V power but offers the power savings of energy-efficient LED lighting. This UL Listed LED fixture can be directly connected to standard household wiring, or plugged into a wall outlet with an included power cable.
Designed for simple operation, this under cabinet fixture can be turned on and off with the house wiring circuit or with the built-in on/off rocker switch. It can also be dimmed with selected commonly-available magnetic low voltage dimmer switches (also known as a forward phase dimmer switch). For installations involving multiple lighting units, an 18-inch inter-connector accessory cable is included, which allows daisy-chaining of up to 32 under cabinet lights.
This high quality under cabinet light fixture combines style with simplicity for a superior lighting solution to illuminate a single area under a cabinet, above a counter, or a complete under cabinet lighting project.
