Introduction to Monorail Lighting
Monorail Lighting, also known as Rail Lighting, is a different variation of Track Lighting. Monorail lights are all mounted on a single continuous track (they can be attached anywhere). And Monorail Lighting is often referred to as flex track because some of the tracks sold are very flexible and can be curved in any shape. There are several different types of track. Oppositely, Monorail Lighting can also form more rigid pathways or can be curved very slightly. Some patterns that can be made by Monorail Lighting are "S curves" or "spirals".
Monorail Lighting is lighting in which the fixtures are hung from a single line monorail track. Monorail Lighting is attached to the ceiling using stems. The lights can be repositioned anywhere along the length of an electrified track. A bonus to Monorail lights is that they can be turned on and off as a group, and you can add or subtract light with a dimmer to meet your ambience needs.
Monorail Lighting is a practical and aesthetically pleasing type of lighting. Because of this, they do not necessarily have to be hidden, they have a very fresh, modern look and it is quite alright if they go noticed on your ceiling. But likely they will blend in well. You can mount them where they will not stand out. Monorail Lighting is typically used in multiple tracks at once.
Different Types and Applications of Monorail Lighting
Monorail Lighting is a very interesting method of lighting. It is great for task lighting because you can point each light in a different direction as needed. You see Monorail Lighting used often in restaurants, along bars or kitchen counters, even at the hair dressers.
Monorail Lighting, like Track Lighting, is typically mounted on a wall or ceiling but can also be mounted lengthwise down beams, or across rafters, as well as hung with rods from vaulted ceilings.
Finishes that are offered of Monorail Lighting includes black, bronze, satin nickel among many others. And Monorail Lighting bulb types offered include LED, incandescent, and halogen. High powered LEDs drive the light in dramatic fashion and many are approved for all different Monorail Lighting location applications.

Design and Installation of Monorail Lighting
Monorail Lighting is very useful in situations where traditional lighting is problematic or not as useful as it should be. Monorail Lighting can be very effective for isolating a work of art or other prominent design element. Several lights can be installed in a single track and pointed in any number of directions, this is key to the growing success of Monorail Lighting and other forms of Track Lighting. Traditional spotlights may take up valuable space on a ceiling, and the backlighting effect from below is often unpleasant. Monorail Lighting does not take up valuable space on a mantle or table, has no unpleasant backlighting from the ceiling, and unlike spotlights it can be hung unobtrusively from the ceiling.
Monorail Lighting is a stark contrast to the typical routing of electrical wiring because it uses electrical conductors, where the electrical wiring is hidden inside a piece of plastic or aluminum track, and then that is wired directly into a circuit or a wall socket for power. Metal plates in the socket contact the charged wiring in the track, and this is how the bulb is activated and turned on.
