Track Light FAQ

  • Can you replace track lighting fixtures?

    Track lighting fixtures can be replaced; however, the track fixture adapter must be compatible with track system that’s currently installed.
  • Are track lights out of style?

    Track Lighting may not always be the first aesthetic choice on a designers’ list for today’s lighting layout styles. However, it is highly versatile, and for some applications, like concrete ceilings or where lighting versatility is needed, track lighting is still a top choice. Also, with track lighting offered in slimmer profiles and with modern track fixtures, track lighting can still easily complement almost any current style and decor.

  • Are track lights standard size?

    There isn’t a standard size to track lights (fixtures). Track fixtures come in many shapes, sizes, and function options to fit the desired need of the lighting application. 
  • What are the three types of track lighting?

    The three main types of track lighting are H-Type, L-Type, and J-Type. The differences between the three track types are the number of wires and the shape of the buss bars (what connects the power to the track fixture). H-Type is a 3-wire system with three thin, flat buss bars. L-Type and J-Type are 2-wire systems with two cylindrical buss bars.
  • Do all track lights fit the same track?

    Not all track lights fit or are compatible with other track systems. Each track system requires a specific track light adapter to work with the given track system.
  • Can you mount track lighting on a wall?

    Track Lighting is typically mounted to a drywall/gypsum, T-bars, or concrete ceilings. Since tracking lighting is a surface mount system, it can also easily be installed on a wall, suspended from a ceiling, or on a beam with the appropriate hardware.
