Can track lighting be wall mounted?

Because it is surface mounted, track is particularly easy to install, especially in remodels. The track is usually mounted to the ceiling but it can be mounted to a wall, a beam or dropped from the ceiling on stems or cables.

Also asked, are all track lighting compatible?

It's important to keep in mind that not all track lights (fixtures) fit all track types. The three standards were developed by the early manufacturers of track lighting (Halo, Juno and Lightolier), and we carry fixtures that are compatible with all three systems.

Secondly, how far should track lights be from the wall? Mount the track fixture parallel to the wall. If your ceiling height is 9 feet or lower, place the track about two to three feet from the wall. If the ceiling is between 9 and 11 feet, place the track about three to four feet from the wall. Then, space the fixtures the same distance apart as the track is from the wall.

In this regard, can track lighting be plugged into an outlet?

A plug-in track light requires no electrical wiring, but must be located near an outlet. Hardwired track lights require electrical connections be made at a junction box (an electrical box in the ceiling or wall) during installation.

How do you connect power to track lighting?

  1. INSTALL THE MOUNTING PLATE.
  2. MEASURE AND MARK FOR THE TRACK.
  3. ATTACH THE TRACK TO THE MOUNTING PLATE.
  4. SECURE THE TRACK.
  5. TWIST ON THE LIVE-END CONNECTOR.
  6. ATTACH A CORNER.
  7. TWIST ON A LIGHT.
