Track lights, as the name suggests, are lights mounted on a similar track. The angle of illumination can be adjusted arbitrarily. Generally used as a spotlight, it is used in places where emphasis lighting is needed. Speaking of Long lifespan LED track light, we have to trace its history. The earlier track lights are generally metal halide lamps and tungsten halogen light sources. Since 2012, LEDs have gradually matured In the era of the market, the track lights on the market were gradually replaced by the previous metal halide lamp light sources by LED light sources, thereby achieving more energy-saving and environmental protection. Nowadays, the commonly known track lights are also slowly called LED track lights.

Due to its flexible installation characteristics, it is generally used as a specific spotlight. Most commercials, such as shopping malls (clothing stores, furniture stores, and other brand stores), car displays, jewelry, star hotels, branded clothing, high-end clubs, museums, chain stores, brand business halls, professional windows, counters, etc. Focus on lighting.

The structure of the track light is similar to the downlight, but it is equipped with a track part and an electrical part for more flexible installation and use. The basic styles of track lights are divided into three types:

Different track light styles can be flexibly selected according to different projects and space requirements.

Track style selection:

There is a choice of lamp styles, naturally, there are also track styles to choose from, and different track accessories can be equipped to facilitate everyone to try a variety of track forms.

In the design, it is necessary to consider the combination of lamp control to select the type of track. The track has a standard length, and there are various types of connection heads and connectors to facilitate the connection of the track and achieve various transitional installation. It can be flexibly adjusted according to different ceiling directions and installation requirements in practical applications.

Installation method:

The final installation form of LED track light is determined by the installation method of the track. The installation methods of the track are generally four types: surface installation, wall installation, embedded (with frame), and embedded (without frame).

1 surface mount

This installation method saves the track part, so the ceiling will look clean and tidy.

However, this installation method should pay special attention to the installation position and angle. At the design stage, it is necessary to determine the installation position of the track lights and the number of lamps; at the same time, the projection direction and use of the lamps should be considered in conjunction with human activities and furniture layout. .

2 Hanging rail installation

This type of installation is so powerful that it hangs the track in the air, which is similar to the hanging chandelier. When using this installation method, pay attention to designing the installation method and angle in advance.

3 hidden tracks

At first glance, this installation method is a bit like surface installation, but in fact, people hide the track part in the ceiling, design the groove in the ceiling, and install the track part into the groove.

It is worth noting here that the track light selected for the installation method of the hidden track must be low and small to avoid excessive exposure of the lamp and make the ceiling look messy. At the same time, pay attention to the size of the groove opening to avoid the edge of the groove blocking the lamp Outlet.

4 Embedded track

Compared with concealed installation, the installation method of the track is not too deep, flush with the ceiling groove, and the light outlet of the lamp is not blocked, so there are not many restrictions in the choice of lamps.

5 hidden

The biggest feature of this installation method is that the track is not exposed and can be arbitrarily embedded on the side and ceiling. However, the requirements for the lamps are relatively high. Due to the special installation, it is necessary to select the Use track lights with larger adjustment angles to match.

6 Other forms of expression

With the diversification of scene requirements, manufacturers have also opened their minds, and track lights have become more flexible and more observable.

Of course, in addition to a variety of tracks, track lights are not far behind. Make some optical designs on the lamps and lanterns, such as jumping from the scenes of birds and fish!
