How to install Track and Lights

When laying out your track plan, take the following steps.
  • Measure the length of the track you will need.
  • Determine where along the track you will need power, whether at the end or somewhere along the track.
  • Select the proper track connecting units needed for your plan (T-connector, L-connector, flexible connector, etc.).
  • Select the style, finish, and quantity of track lighting fixtures you will need.
  • Keep in mind that on a track system you can add fixtures to it later if needed
All of our low and line voltage track heads are available in versions compatible with each standard, including Halo or Juno which gives us the flexibility to meet different customer demands and heads are available in a 3-Wire Single Circuit system compatible with Halo system or J-style compatible with Juno system.

Each standard differs in its connection between the fixture (the head) and the track, so while the fixtures themselves look exactly the same, it is important to choose the right fixture to match the standard of the track you have installed or plan to install.

If you are starting from scratch, we recommend the three-wire single circuit track is a standard as it is the most popular.

Track lights are a convenient and versatile way to provide task or accent lighting, directed to shine on a specific area or subject. Once the tracks are installed, adjustable fixtures may be installed or removed from the track with a simple twist. This flexibility allows you to achieve the mood or presentation you desire by simply pointing the light where you want it.

Later, you can change the presentation by redirecting the light, adding or removing fixtures.
