Introduction to Track Lighting
Track lighting comes in a variety of shapes and sizes. It can be used in residential and commercial applications as a source of accent lighting to illuminate shelves and artwork, task lighting over kitchen islands, or even ambient lighting in long, narrow rooms like hallways. There are three types of tracks: H, J, and L. If you already have track lights that you are trying to extend, it is very important to match the type of track because H, J, and L tracks are not compatible with each other. These different types of track all come in single or two (dual) circuit options and have similar lamp heads and accessories. When choosing the type of track lighting is right for you, first decide if you need a single or dual circuit track. Single circuit tracks mean all the track heads turn on and off together; with dual circuit tracks, you can have two groups of track heads synced to turn on and off independently of one another.
Track Lighting Types
We primarily carry H-type compatible products, but we also offer some L-type and J-type compatible track heads. Available in low or line voltage options, you're sure to find the track lighting to meet your needs. If what you want isn't in stock, give us a call and sometimes we can place a special order with the manufacturers. If you prefer quick and convenient installation, take advantage of our track packs, which include all of the accessories and parts you need to install your track-lighting system or one of our fixed track all-in-one fixtures. We also carry a wide variety of track heads including well-known styles like the step cylinder or barn door heads and more unique styles like the wireback and clasp-fingered track heads. Most of our track light fixtures are designed for use with either single or dual circuit tracks with the positive contact able to flip up or down depending on which circuit you want it use it with. Our track heads come in either line or low voltage and several finish options.
