Introduction to Track Lighting
Track Lighting lights are all mounted on a single continuous track (they can be attached anywhere). Track Lights are movable lights on track, they can be repositioned anywhere along the length of an electrified track. A bonus to track 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.
Track Lights are easy on the eye, so they do not necessarily have to be hidden; they have a very fresh, modern look. But you can of course mask them or mount them where they will not stand out. Track Lighting is typically used in groups of at least 3-4 tracks, and rarely is just one alone used.
Different Types and Applications of Track Lighting
Track Lighting is a very interesting method of lighting. 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 Track Lighting includes black, bronze, satin nickel and others. And bulb types offered include LED, incandescent, and halogen. High powered LEDs drive the light in dramatic fashion and many are approved for all different location applications.

Design and Installation of Track Lighting
Track Lighting is very useful in situations where traditional lighting is problematic. It 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 Track Lighting. Traditional spotlights may take up valuable space on a mantle or table, and the backlighting effect from below is often unpleasant. Track lighting does not take up valuable space on a mantle or table, has no unpleasant backlighting, and allows floodlights and spotlights to be hung unobtrusively from the ceiling or upper walls.
Track Lighting is a stark contrast to the typical routing of electrical wiring – Track Lighting contains electrical conductors. The exposed 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. A socket or lamp assembly can happen after you mount the track to the wall or ceiling.
