Track lighting or rail lighting, has long been popular in shops, showrooms, galleries and museums, offering an efficient and adjustable lighting system. Cosmetically though it’s always been a bit too industrial for most homes. That’s why we’re so excited about our new ranges of track lighting systems designed especially for the home, these have been completely overhauled to be sleeker, easier to use and available in a range of colours and finishes.
We now often see track used in high-end kitchens, home gyms, even entire homes, opening up the benefits of these modern systems to interior designers and home owners. The main benefit of track lighting is the ability to move light heads anywhere along it with ease, add and remove lights, and offer an installation that gives you loads of light fixtures without the need to drill huge holes in the ceiling that would be necessary with the same amount of downlights.
Moving and adding lights is usually as simple as turning a small thumbscrew, and due to the guarded electrical connections in the track this is completely safe and easy, no wiring needed.
Installation-wise track is really useful, it can span between two points, for example an atrium or portion of raised ceiling, some tracks can even be suspended to provide lower level lighting in high ceiling rooms. For normal architectural situations though you’re just as wise to use track lighting, the rails used need very few supports and installed with just a single screw means minimal holes in your ceiling as well as a faster installation.
Track lighting offers a clean, minimalist look that can be completely customised to your space. Teamed with its ease of use for both installer and home owner this really does offer the most flexible lighting solution today.
Our lighting experts are always on hand if you need advice on what track is best for you, installation queries, even checking you have all the components you need.
