LED Track lighting has become one of the most frequently used products for commercial lighting in the past decade thanks to the exceptional technology and affordable pricing it comes with. It is by far the most flexible light fixture you will find for commercial applications such as art galleries, retail stores, showrooms and office spaces, but also for many residential applications. LED track lighting allows you to move the light fittings around, aim them in any direction, change the light levels and use different beam angles, all to create that customized lighting design for any given application.
Track Lighting Range
10W LED Track Lights
The 10W LED Track light is normally used in residential spaces such as lounge rooms kitchen areas or in exhibiting areas inside of cabinets to light up displays. It is the ideal lighting for areas where you want to achieve a more gentle illumination. The light fitting is identical with the 15W track light in size, but the cost is only $99 +GST
15W LED Track Lights
15W LED Track Lights are normally used in applications with a lower set ceiling up to around 3 metres in height as you wouldn’t be in need of a stronger light output here in order to achieve sufficient lighting. Some common applications are for example art galleries, retail and high-end residential spaces.
$129 + GST
30W LED Track Lights
This light fitting is used in applications with a ceiling height above 3 metres and is often seen in commercial applications such as retail and showrooms.
$161 + GST
40W LED Track Lights
If you’re dealing with a very tall ceiling above 4 meters, a 40W track light is normally necessary for sufficient lighting. Showrooms and retail are some common applications.
$171 + GST
Track or Rail for Track Lighting
The tracks for cheap track lighting comes in two different models to fit different needs and preferences. To achieve general dimming of all the light fittings at once, the standard single circuit 3 wire track is installed which is the cheaper and lighter track type. In applications in need of a more customized lighting design, a 3 circuit 4 wire track can be installed which allows you to dim the lights in three different groups from a wall switch. This is however, a chunkier and more expensive track type that takes a bit longer to install.
Single circuit 3 wire track: wholesale priced at $24+ GTS per metre.
3 circuit 4 wire track: priced at $44 + GST per metre.
To adapt the tracks to any given application, accessories like suspension kits and different joiners can be used. The suspension kits are used to suspend the tracks from the ceiling in order to bring them down to a more convenient level. These come in 1.5 and 3-metre lengths that can be adjusted up or down. You’ll need 1 suspension kit per metre of track.
To create a suitable lighting design for your application, the tracks are easily joined together into different configurations via L, T and straight track joiners. These allow you to e.g. create squares, straight lines, U-shapes and much more. In a long rectangular application, you may, for example, run one or two straight runs of tracks throughout the room, or if you have a square room, a square of tracks may be the ideal design. It’s all about finding what configuration will be the most suitable for the given application. To finish off the ending tracks, there is also end caps available.
Track Lighting Cheaper than Downlights
Downlights are often mistaken for being the cheapest commercial lighting product on the market as the light fittings themselves are found at a very low cost. What seems to be looked over is, however, the cost of the installation that is a lot more time-consuming and complex than the installation of track lights. Considering the fact that a hole needs to be cut in the ceiling for each and every light fitting that also needs an individual cable run to it, the installation process of 20 downlights is 1-2 days with a labour cost of around $200.
While the track light fittings are a bit more pricey than the downlight fittings, installing the track lights is a very quick and simple procedure. Running 20 meters of track along a ceiling will take around 2 hours at the most and may cost you around $200 labour fee.
The track light might cost you $170+ GST for the track and the light but the install cost is around $10 for each light, downlights might cost you $85+ GST for the light but the install can cost you $130 making downlight significantly more expensive.
Comparing the two, choosing cheap track lighting over downlights is often a better alternative as they end up being more affordable and leave you with a lot more freedom to adjust and adapt the lighting in your application.
