LED Base Molding (LBM)
Flannery’s LED Drywall Base Molding (LBM) creates a linear light reveal at the bottom of a vertical gypsum wall. The LED Drywall Base Mold is installed with 5/8” thick gypsum board and is available in varying heights. Flannery’s LED Drywall Base Mold comes with a frosted diffuser and allows for a ½” wide or smaller LED strip to be applied to the reveal’s side wall (LED’s and wiring are not provided).
LED Drywall Base Moldings are standard extruded aluminum alloy 6063 T5 and are .050” thick. Flannery’s LED Reveals come in 10′ lengths and shall have a standard Mill Finish for field priming and painting unless specified otherwise. Clear Anodized and Chem-film finishes, as well as other factory finishes and custom paint orders are available. You can view our factory finishes to see if we have what you are looking for or if you do not see the finish, you are looking for, chances are we can color-match it or we already have it! Flannery Trim wants to always make sure we can get you the right look and feel for your building project.
Attach the LED Drywall Base Molding Part A through the taping flange to the drywall and framing with screws or other approved fastening methods. Part B is inserted up and in behind Part A and glued to the substrate creating the base reveal. All reveals and diffusers must be cut accurately and installed with tight, neat joints. Manufacturer recommends that a carbide tip blade along with blade lubricant be used when cutting any aluminum trim. The frosted diffuser should be cut with a double edged blade to reduce cracking. Installer must consult with LED manufacturer for LED light strip installation and wiring procedures and methods.
Flannery offers pre-fabricated Inside and Outside Corners for intricate wall designs that utilize an LED reveal around corners. Pre-fabricated corners are mitered and then welded at the nailing flanges. Factory welded corners come with 6” legs, however custom leg lengths can be ordered.
In addition to pre-fabricated corners, Flannery also provides wiring notches in the side wall of the aluminum base molding and behind the diffuser to allow for the wiring of the LED strips to return back to the power source. These notches are concealed once the diffuser is in place.
