Track Lighting FAQ

  • 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.

  • 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.
  • How do you design track lighting?

    The beauty of track lighting design is the flexibility with the ability to move and aim the track fixture along the track. The design depends on what is being highlighted or illuminated, as well as the type of track system (rigid or flexible). To learn more, see the Lighting Control & Application Tips (pg. 152) in the Juno Trac Lighting Product Guide.
  • How do I update my old track lighting?

    Since power is already in place, an electrician can easily update your track lighting by swapping out the old track stick for a new one. A simple track fixture replacement can also update and modernize the look. If replacing fixtures, be sure that the fixture adapter is compatible for the existing track system.
