Track lighting is a series of pendants or tracks heads that are connected along a track that is most commonly mounted to a ceiling or wall. There are a few things to think about when creating your mounted lights installation: track type, design, and power, and track head and bulb type.
Initially, choose a standard track design.
There are three various types of tracks-- L-style, j-style, and h-style, all of which are not suitable with each other. Also, if you select a proprietary brand, implying it's made and offered just by that particular company, you are stuck with choosing lights from that brand just. It's suggested to select among the three basic track systems that provide more choices.
You can likewise select from curved, flexible, or straight track sections. Curved and flexible track systems are low voltage and straight track systems that run off of line voltage, or the raw voltage coming from a basic outlet. Low voltage systems utilize less energy, offer warmer and sharper light, and have more modern styles. They are more expensive, as a transformer is required to convert the standard 120V produced from the outlet to 12V. Line voltage systems are more economical, as the transformer is not needed, but use more energy than low voltage systems.

Connecting to a junction box, or hard-wiring, offers a more finished appearance. Nevertheless, if no junction box is offered, you will require to install one which might need the services of an electrical expert.
When you've selected your track head type, you'll require to select the bulb. Low voltage systems use halogen or LED MR16 and MR11 bulbs. Line voltage systems can utilize a broader variety, depending upon the fixture recommendation, such as PAR20, mr16, and mr11 bulbs. Each of these types of bulbs likewise comes in different beam angles-- area bulbs have a beam angle under 25 degrees and flood bulbs have a beam angle of 25 degrees or greater. If you choose an LED bulb, this will also supply more options based on color temperature ranging from warm to cool white.
