I can look into it later.
If you want to step up your finished product even more then I'd run the wires on the inside of the angle aluminum and use small zipties to hold it in place. The green dotted lines would be the wires on the inside of the angle aluminum, blue is zipties. If you don't want to drill, or use zipties, then some good quality hot glue in the channels would hold the wire in place, too.

In this application id have to use grommets where the wire penetrated the metal. That'd be my only drawback.

No need to go through the aluminum with the wire, just bend it 90° after it come off the strip, and then bend it around and into the channel. I tried to show that with the green lines but it came out messy.

Just curious bro, how are u getting 400 watts out of a 350 watt driver..?
Like yourself, and as u no, ive owned 4 of them LRS drivers, running the boards, but never seen them run up to 400 watts?
Thx
It all depends on what have connected to the driver, and how hard you push the driver. I run the 150W driver with 4 strips connected and pushed to 180W.

Ya it just kinda puzzled me when u can look up the specs on a driver, and it says max output of 350w , but it can actually go alittle higher..
Guess its like u said, it all depends on what u got it connected to..
Thx TFC

They usually rate them lower than they are capable of so people don’t push them too hard and shorten the lifespan of the electronics. If you push them too hard, they will run hotter, and that can shorten the lifespan of the driver.

It'll push close to 400. I rounded up. The strips are rated for 50,watts each. 8 strips each light.
@Bustenbeans put a watt meter on it. I think it was 392 all the way up

Yeah we have videos of them drivers hooked up to an amp/watt tool and the Apogee 500 the video's were to big to load I'll toss some of terpys ppfd maps with a single 350 and show what they can max out at. Yup 390 and then some
