Track lights are commonly used for showroom lighting as they provide the excellent, high CRI illumination that is essential for displaying products at their best. Light fixtures with CRI levels under 80 will make the colours look dull and washed out, making them unsuitable in a situation where it is essential to impress customers.
Showroom track lighting consists of tracks that click together, enabling them to be assembled in a range of shapes to fit the structure and size of any room. Common shapes include straight runs, squares and U-shaped track configurations. The choice is up to you; it’s all about finding what shape of track is the most flattering and beneficial for your specific showroom space.
Straight runs are used for very long wall spaces, and are usually run in two lines along the walls of a room.
Square tracks are perfect for a box-shaped room where all walls are in need of illumination. You can also run straights across the squares for supplementary illumination of displays in the centre.
U-shaped runs can be used when you need to light up the back and side walls of a room while leaving the entrance darker and more open.
