Track lighting, developed during the late 1960s, consists of a series of lights mounted on a track that acts as an extended power source. Introduced more than 30 years ago, track lighting made spotlighting popular in the home. While track lighting was initially bulky, overly bright, and unappealing, today’s low-voltage track lights are more streamlined and attractive.

Lighting tracks are either free form or fixed form. On a free form track, the number of spotlights, as well as their position on the track, is flexible. In addition, multiple light fixture types from the same track lighting manufacturer can often be combined on the same track. For instance, spotlights can be used for accent lighting on one part of the track while a pendant light can overhang a table in another area. The track carries the current, and the lights are plugged in, via a connector, whenever they are needed.

On a fixed form track, several light fixtures are already attached at pre-determined intervals. The angle and swivel of the individual lights can usually be adjusted, but they can’t be repositioned along the track. Although fixed track lighting is less versatile than free track lighting, it is economical and convenient for a variety of uses, and today it is the most common form of track lighting used in residential applications. The price of fixed form track lighting makes it an affordable choice for people of all budgets.

Both types of track lighting are available in 120 volt and low voltage versions, with power delivered directly or via a transformer to one end of the track. Lighting tracks are most often mounted on the ceiling, but may be mounted on a wall or even a floor. Straight track sections may be joined to form longer straight or angled runs. And while curved track can be expensive, it is readily available. In rooms with high ceilings, track lighting can be hung on cables or rods, allowing for dramatic uplighting effects.

In recent years, track lighting has been further refined and is now available in bare wire formats for those who are seeking a minimalist look. In this dramatically appealing setup, two tensioned cables support small, low-voltage lights that can be repositioned along the twin cables. This type of lighting is very low-voltage 12 volts allowing them to be touched and moved safely. These types of lights are usually connected via a transformer to a power source, and are tensioned from wall to wall or from ceiling to floor. While bare wire lighting has traditionally been used in museums and for displaying objects, it is being used more and more in the home, particularly in contemporary homes that are best served by its dramatic effect. Some bare wire lights can even be moved along the wires by remote control!
