LED Track Lighting: How To Choose The Right Fixtures For Your Lighting ApplicationsTrack lights + LED light bulbs = directional lighting heaven.

Track lights are installed on ceilings and walls in locations that demand performance and adjustability. These lights are ideal for directional lighting—for example: focusing light on artwork or other objects and task lighting. Track lighting is flexible, so adjusting lights to match rearranged furniture is easy to do, and this lighting solution is the best alternative for locations that cannot accommodate recessed lighting.

What To Consider Before Choosing Your Track Lighting Fixtures

Track Type: A track lighting system can be line or low voltage, single or two circuits, and flexible or straight. Before you buy track lighting fixtures for your track lighting system, you must identify what kind of track you have or what kind of track you want to buy. Keep in mind that every light fixture will not be compatible with every track system. The fixtures are determined by the manufacturer, adapter standard, and voltage needed for the track you have.

Layout: The lighting track you have is straight or flexible and it has a single-circuit or a two-circuit configuration. Also, the lighting system is either installed directly to the ceiling or suspended from it. Take these factors into account when choosing the types of fixtures you need. You can have any layout you want for your track lighting system using track connectors and different track lengths.

Choose Your Fixtures

To pick the right fixtures for your track lighting system, you must determine if the fixtures are compatible with the track system in place. Also, consider what is being illuminated. Fixtures that are installed to illuminate artwork are usually different from light fixtures used for general lighting. Furthermore, lamps differ in diameter and brightness.
