ABOUT TRACK LIGHTS & LIGHTING
Track lighting systems consist of tracks fixed to, or hung from, the ceiling to which lighting heads can be attached. Track lighting provides practical flexibility as to the future positioning of lamps; it can also produce a striking and decorative effect.
Track lighting is available in two main forms: line voltage and low voltage. The low voltage systems require a transformer. The advantage of a low voltage system is that it can use smaller compact bulbs; these can be just as bright as line voltage bulbs. It is generally wise to space lighting heads at least one foot apart. Line voltage systems usually have a limit of around 1900 watts for a single run. Low voltage systems usually have a limit of around 300 watts for a single run. The lamp heads fitted to track lighting can be spot lights, pendant lights, or fluorescent lights. LED lamps are also available, providing reduced energy consumption.
