Commercial track lighting offers an energy-efficient and convenient way to incorporate lighting solutions into any space. Boasting adaptability and versatility, track lighting can be installed in a variety of different settings and proves particularly popular for use in commercial and retail spaces.
Track lighting systems function using two main elements. The track itself, which can be mounted onto ceilings, walls and suspended or recessed AND the LED track lights, which are installed along the length of the track.
These LED track spotlights can be mounted anywhere on the track and are fully adjustable. All the system components are anchored in a single electrical system, thereby eradicating the need for structural remodelling and offering an easy and simple retrofit option.

While commercial track lighting has much in common with recessed lighting and both can be used for spotlights and full illumination, there are features to differentiate the two. Recessed lighting is installed in the ceiling. These hidden fixtures blend into the ceiling, taking up less visual space but often requiring structural remodelling upon installation.
Track lighting, however, is mounted directly onto a ceiling or wall surface, allowing for a minimally invasive installation process. As such, recessed lighting typically costs more to install than track lighting.
Recessed lighting is often the ideal choice for a more subtle solution. The hidden fixtures blend seamlessly with the ceiling surface. For spaces with low ceilings, recessed lighting is often the best option, as track lighting will protrude down into the ceiling space.
While recessed lighting is a permanent fixture, track lighting can be rotated 360 degrees. The spotlights allow for easy adjustments depending on requirements, thereby offering enhanced versatility and the ability to illuminate any area.
LED track lighting has many positive points that we’ve already touched on, including the ease of installing, especially as a retrofit option with minimal disruption. It also offers the flexibility to highlight specific areas or products, a priority when used in a retail environment, as you can pinpoint the directional light quickly and easily.
Another advantage is the variety of track spotlight styles and colours available to suit your retail environment, you can choose from contemporary to more industrial designed spotlights for commercial sites.
We supply a 3 circuit LED track system, allowing you to split the lighting into areas. Compared to other fixtures and depending on the track length, style and number of spotlights, the initial costs may be more, but using energy-efficient LED lighting will ensure that ongoing costs are reduced.
When we talk about LED surface track lighting, this means the track is mounted and screwed directly on the ceiling. Installation is simple with tracks being able to be fitted wherever required and is a minimally invasive installation process. The track comes in different lengths and but can be cut to fit your measurements. For longer LED surface mounted lights, you can join tracks by using a coupler and linking them together.
Surface-mounted track lighting isn’t just limited to ceilings and can also be installed on walls, either vertically or horizontally. It’s a great option for lighting objects at different angles.
Popular in retail and commercial spaces with high ceilings, suspended track lighting allows the lights to be lowered closer to products or areas that need to be illuminated. This can be achieved using suspension wire kits or fixed threaded rod kits. This type of mounting also provides an attractive industrial finish to space. It can also be cut and installed to make any length, rectangle, square or shape required.
Recessed track lighting is installed in the ceiling, the Track itself is recessed, thus reducing the visual impact of it. It generally would cost more to install than the surface mounted option. It is, however, the ideal choice for a more subtle solution with the installation blending more seamlessly with the ceiling surface. For spaces with low ceilings, recessed track lighting is often the best option.
There’s now a workable dimmable solution for all types of LED lighting. Dimmable track lighting is available and designed to give more control over the brightness and ambience required. Mains dimmable spotlights also reduce energy consumption and are compatible with many circuit track lighting systems.
