Track LED Lights
Track lighting is a method of lighting where light fixtures are attached anywhere on a continuous track device which contains electrical conductors. This is as opposed to the routing of electrical wiring to individual light positions. Track lighting systems are versatile lighting solutions that can be used to power spotlights, floodlights, pendant lights or any other fixtures with the proper adapter and voltage. Characterized by their concealed conductors, the tracks are used on ceilings and walls in settings that demand performance and adjust-ability. They can also be hung with rods from especially high places like vaulted ceilings.
Typical systems have line voltage running through a recessed track. The track may have more than one live conductor, so that multiple switched circuits can be used to control different fittings on the same track. This is selected by placing the tab of the connector on the fixture to one side or the other when attaching it to the track.
When a ceiling can’t accommodate recessed lighting, because of beams, for instance, track lighting enables you to position fixtures close to the ceiling, keeping sightliness clear. It’s ideal for directing light at art and objects, as well as for task lighting several areas of a larger room at once. Plus, if you tend to change positioning of your furnishings and accessories, track lighting offers much more flexibility to adjust your lighting accordingly than fixed fixtures.
Track lighting has been around for decades, yet it remains as fresh and contemporary a ceiling light fixture as ever. This is due primarily to its pure industrial look, with clean, rigid tracks and streamlined directional heads. But function is also a factor when it comes to a track lighting system, with each of the selected track heads independently and easily adjustable and brightly focused. Complete track lighting kits will also allow you to have a stylish ceiling track lighting system instantly.
The adjust-ability, bright light and modern look of track lights make them a particularly good-looking workhorse in contemporary spaces. In residential locations, track light systems commonly find their home in kitchens, highlighting task areas and accenting kitchen counters or in the dining room, complementing the dining room chandelier or other sources of light. And in the living room, the focused and directional light provided by a flexible track lighting system is ideal for picture and display lighting, as well as accenting light over the media center. Track lighting pendants can also be used in home offices and workspaces to provide functional, task-oriented illumination. In commercial spaces, track lighting is often seen in restaurants, business offices, warehouses and industrial locations, as well as airports and hotels. Finally, look to damp and wet rated outdoor track lighting if you need focused ceiling lighting for the deck and patio.
Although inherently contemporary, track lighting can fit in with a wide range of interior design styles, from homes boasting with modern design to more transitional homes. Track lighting is offered in a variety of sizes to accommodate multiple room sizes, ranging from single-track head light fixtures to multi-head track lights. You can also set the mood in any room by putting your track lighting on a dimmer switch.
