Types and uses of track lights

Preface

Track light, as the name implies, is the light mounted on a track-like surface. The lighting angle can be adjusted at will. It is generally used as a spotlight, and is used where there is a need of accent lighting.

Due to the flexibility in installation, it is generally used as a specific spotlight and is mainly for commercial use, such as shopping mall (brand stores like clothing stores and furniture stores), and spotlighting places (including car display, jewelry, star hotels, branded clothing, high-end clubs, museum, chain shopping malls, branded business halls, professional windows and counters).

Today, let's take a look at "the types and uses of track lights ".

Selection of lighting styles

The structure of track light is similar to that of the down light. It just carries the track part and electrical part so that it can be installed and used more flexibly. Here are 3 basic types of track light.

Different styles of track light can be selected according to different projects and space requirements.

Selection of track styles

Of course there is a variety of tracks for selection, in addition to a wide range of track lights. Also, different parts can be supplied along with different tracks, making it easy for people to try different tracks.

The types of tracks are generally divided as the follows.

The types of tracks should be considered in the design based on the light control system. The track has a standard length; it can also be customized using varied connectors which facilitate the track connection and help achieve various turning and installations. It can be flexibly controlled to get adapted to different ceilings and installation requirements in practical applications.


Installation methods


The installation of track light is absolutely determined by the installation of the track. In general, the track is installed in four ways, installed on the surface, mounted on the wall, embedded with frame or embedded without frame.

1. Installed on the surface

This method leaves out the track, so the ceiling will appear clean and tidy as a whole.

Special attention should be paid to the position and angle for installation under this method. At the stage of design, it is necessary to determine the position for installation and the number of lamps; at the same time, the lighting direction, use of light, human activity, and furnishing and decoration should all be combined for consideration.

2. Installation using overhead rail

This installation is fantastic. The track is hung in the air. This is similar to the lift chandelier.

When using this installation method, make a design regarding the installation and angle in advance.

3. Hidden track

This installation is a bit like the surface installation at first glance; but in fact, people hide the track into the ceiling. The groove is in the ceiling to have the track inside.

It is worth noting that the track light selected for the installation based on hidden tracks must be low rise and small, so as to avoid excessive exposure of light and the mess on the ceiling. At the same time, attention should be paid to the size of the groove, to avoid the blocking of light.

4. Embedded track

Compared with hidden track installation, the track embedded will not be too deep into the ceiling and is level to the ceiling. There will be no blocking of the light and no limit on the selection of light styles.

5. Hidden and not exposed

The biggest feature of this installation method is that the track is not exposed outside and can be embedded on the side and into the ceiling. However, the requirements for light are relatively high: the track light that is greatly flexible in angle adjustment should be selected for use so as to control the lighting direction.

Maintenance of track lights

Try not to switch frequently when using track light. This is because the current through the filament is greater than that at normal operation at the moment the light is frequently started, and this will greatly reduce the service life. Be careful not to change the structure of the light during cleaning and maintenance. Do not change some parts of the light at hazard.

Clean the dust and finger print on the reflection cover in time. Do not contact the bulb wall directly by hand if it is the traditional light source. Restore the light in status quo after the cleaning and maintenance. Do not miss or miss-install any parts of the light.
