Introduction to Track Lighting
Track Lighting is mounted on a single continuous track and may be placed for multiple different lighting purposes. Track Lighting Heads are movable lights on a track, that can be repositioned anywhere along the length of the 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 Lighting is easy on the eye, so it does not necessarily have to be hidden. They have a very fresh and 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 used alone.
Different Types and Applications of Track Lighting
Track Lighting is typically mounted on a wall or ceiling but may also be mounted lengthwise on down beams, across rafters, as well as hung with rods from vaulted ceilings.
Track Lighting Fixtures come in multiple different finishes from black, bronze, satin nickel, to name a few. 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 Fixtures
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, whereas track lighting systems may be mounted on the ceiling and will accentuate a mantle or table perfectly.
Track Lighting is a stark contrast to the typical routing of electrical wiring because it 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 may happen only after you mount the track to the wall or ceiling.
