These methods about how to install track lighting systems

Rail mounting method

1, ceiling mounted

track lighting systems are placed against the ceiling, as if they were attached to the ceiling, called a ceiling mount.

2, embedded installation

The ceiling is slotted, and the track and the luminaire are hidden deep into the trough to keep the ceiling clean and beautiful.

In addition to keeping the ceiling clean and beautiful, the embedded installation also eliminates the space height of the hanger and reduces the pressure on the space. Although the embedded rails can be “hidden and ugly”, sometimes the electrician can open the dark trough and hide it.

▲ Embedded installation reveals gaps on both sides

If it is slotted because of the embedded installation, and it is worried that the exposed gap is unsightly, the value of the face is lowered. Then using an embedded rail with a flange will be a good choice . This can meet the embedded installation requirements and block the slotted slot.

3, hanging installation

▲ Suspended installation

Suspension installation is the most amazing installation method. Here are two examples of the opposite. Let’s take a look at the first one. Maybe the guide rails are too soft, so the construction party feels that this strength will not be enough, so a square steel is added to it. In fact, the guide rail itself can be directly hoisted. If a sufficiently hard guide rail is used, it can be hung on the ceiling without adding materials such as square steel.

The other is seen in the mall, and it is interesting that all track lighting systems are arranged horizontally and vertically into a checkerboard format. But if you look carefully, you will find that the guide rails are not connected to the system. The cross-shaped rails in the figure are only suspended close to each other. Some people will say, what about it, no one looks at it anyway. In fact, this practice will increase the wiring and backplane behind track lighting systems, and the cost is self-evident.

Therefore, track lighting systems wants to be beautifully installed and practical. It is not just that the two rails are placed together. It is really not so simple and easy to install beautifully. In actual engineering projects, there are a variety of rail accessories and connection methods that make the entire rail system very beautiful.

Rail accessories

Reliable accessories are essential if track lighting systems are to be installed safely and securely. The T-bar Easy Clip is a highly practical rail accessory for the Ace Rail. It does not require any tools. It only needs to place the Easy Clip on track lighting systems and then gently rotate it to lock track lighting systems .

▲ Ceiling T-Bar Suspension ClipsWhen we use two rails to splicing together, but the middle part is relatively fragile, the connecting part can be strengthened by track lighting systems connecting clip to play a reinforcing rib.

If you are worried that the steel wire is easy to shake, you can use the screw to strengthen the fixing, so that the steel cable or the screw can be used to make ttrack lighting systems sturdy and “stealth”.

In addition, if we are in the store, do some celebrations, display types of activities need to hang posters, flags. The decoration such as the flag can be directly hung on track lighting systems by the hook assembly .

Rail connection method

In the exhibition hall of the ace rail, you can see that there are manyconnectors for the rail system . How should we use and use these connectors? Let’s continue to explain them.

▲ Various connecting devices for the rail system

1, square rail system

When a square rail system is needed, we don’t need a terminal or a tail for wiring. Only four “L” connectors are needed. Pry the round piece of the corner piece, and then open the two screws to enter the line from the inside, and splicing together to form a square rail system.

▲ Four-wire guide rails

But many people are confused about the direction of the four-wire adapter.Due to the directionality, the original construction of a rail system requires four joints, but we use a convertible “T” joint, now only need two joints, it is very convenient.

3, movable “L” connector

Here is an interesting way to share with you. If you need to build a three-dimensional rail system, use a movable “L” joint so that the two rails can be connected in two different directions, thus making the entire rail system three-dimensional. mode.

4, non-conductive joint

In reality, the rail systems we see are all connected in one piece, but the cross-section of the wires in the project is only about 4 square meters, and the guide rails cannot be connected indefinitely. If we want to build a larger rail system, we use multiple entry points, and the system uses a non-conductive connector to connect the system . With this connector, the live and neutral wires inside are not connected, but the ground wire is Unicom. In this way, not only can the rails be connected into a system, but also the rail system can be repeatedly grounded to form a grounding grid, which is safe and reliable.
