Although LED drivers are not specific heat-producing devices, they may still approach temperatures of up to 40 C. Therefore, we don't recommend installing drivers anywhere near combustible surfaces. While our LED drivers use free air convection cooling (allowing more heat to be transferred away from the heat-sink), they should always be stored in a well-ventilated space. Do not risk cutting corners and installing in tight areas, which can impact the efficiency of the driver; it is always better to be safe when it comes to installing power supplies.
