What is Magnetic Track Lighting, and how does it work?

Magnetic track lighting is a low-voltage track lighting option for indoor use. It is an assembly to accommodate various light sources using magnetic attraction. The track system allows the lighting fixtures to be easily mounted and moved on the steel channel without tools but still provides secure mounting on its clip-on magnet.

The standard magnetic track lighting system has a steel channel that is pre-installed on the ceiling. The ends of the channel are bent up at 90-degree angles to provide easy mounting points for the fixtures. The fixture attaches directly onto the channel through a strong magnet, which creates a firm hold and allows the fixture to be easily changed or moved.

How to choose Magnetic Track Lighting?

The best magnetic track lighting system should be easy to install, compatible with most light fixtures on the market, and should use the same accessories as other standard track lighting systems.

You should carefully consider the height of the room where you will be installing your magnetic track lighting. Magnetic tracks are available in 7, 10, and 12-foot lengths, so make sure there is enough ceiling space.
