Introduction to Cable Lighting
Cable Lighting systems are a new and contemporary way to add a lighting design to your home. Some favorites of Cable Lighting fixtures are sleek, modern and airy styles. All have the extraordinary ability to be installed unobtrusively in even the most challenging of spaces.
Cable Lighting systems are similar to traditional track lighting or Monorail Lighting systems and are often lumped in the same category. However, Cable Lighting has many different components, the largest being that the lights are hung off of a wire system, rather than mounted on a track.
Cable Lighting is often installed in a location where standard lighting would be impractical. Cable lighting is often used in spaces with tricky ceilings or mounting surfaces, spaces with standard or flat ceilings. When the ceiling is fine for any use, the choice of cable lighting is largely a matter of design preference over monorail or traditional track lighting. Components needed to put your cable lighting system together which include the cable itself, connectors, power feeds and supports. Cable Lighting fixtures include pendants and spotlight heads and other hardware.

Design and Installation of Cable Lighting
Cable lighting systems are most commonly used in spaces with challenging mounting surfaces. Sometimes the ceiling is too high, is cathedral or vaulted, or is frequently interrupted by column or soffits, beams or exposed ceiling work. It is in these situations that Cable Lighting comes in handy because it can be installed wall to wall or beam to beam with just two mounts, without any vertical support at all. Usually the cable runs 20 feet maximum but if there are situations where more than 20 feet is needed, it is recommended to have some type of vertical support to prevent extra tension on the wire and mounts on the wall. The primary support and conductive wire used in cable lighting systems is a reinforced, tin-plated 10 gauge cable.
