COMMERCIAL TRACK LIGHTING
« on: October 09, 2018, 12:58:21 AM »

Commercial track lights are used in a range of different areas such as retail shops, offices and art galleries. As they are very flexible and adjustable they suit a broad variety of different projects and will most likely be a suitable light to use whether you are lighting up an art piece or a desk in your office space.

Before you install your track lighting system, a good thing is to ask yourself some questions. Will the fittings are suspended or surface mounted? The distance between the displays/walls and lights? What track types and configurations are you having? Power feed, connectors, track joiners, end caps? CRI, wattage, beam angle and light fitting design? These are all things good to keep in mind.

The most common and easiest mounting method to use for places like art galleries is surface track systems. For ceiling heights ranging from 2.7-3 meters, you can usually just install the tracks directly to the ceiling. Suspension track lighting happens when you have a very tall ceiling and want to lower the tracks down to a more convenient height. The lights can be suspended all the way from 6 meters down to 3 meters if needed.

The different track types are 4 wire (3 circuits), which is the more commercial and bulkier type of track that allows dimming from a wall switch dimmer and the other one is the single circuit – a lighter, cheaper and easier profile to install. It allows dimming to all tracks on that circuit at the same time.

The track configurations come in straight runs for longwall spaces, squares with straights for box-shaped rooms in need for centered illumination as well and U-shapes for rooms where you want to keep the entrance darker and illuminate the back of the room and the two side walls illuminated.
