  • Suspending Satin Nickel Track Lighting Project

    At Total Track Lighting, we work on track lighting suspension systems every day. Our projects include single circuit track lighting and double circuit track lighting available in black, white and satin nickel. We currently have a project underway and wanted to share it with you. While we are still in the process of finishing this project, it is a great illustration of the type of designs we do on a regular basis.

    On this project, the client wanted to supply black wire from the track up to the ceiling. When you have a ceiling that is dark or black, black wire is a good choice. You will see from the photos here that the white wire, when straightened up, will actually look best on projects with a white ceiling and walls.

    We wanted to share this project in process so you can see just one of the many details we focus on when assisting our clients. We are always trying to get the best look, the easiest installation and outstanding lighting for your project. Our 7 Fast and Easy Steps is the best way to get started. You can also take a look at our Resource Page on suspending track lighting and our gallery of projects. We do everything we can to bring your project in on time and within budget. We have the most complete inventory for hanging track in the world and have been doing it for over 30 years!

  • HandyDadTV Landscape Lighting Design & Installation Video

     

    We partnered with HandyDad.TV and sponsored his latest video on installing LED low voltage outdoor lighting that you can watch here. We couldn’t be more pleased on how the video turned out. HandyDad.TV walks the viewer through the layout and lighting design process explaining the reasons he made the choices in using Accent Lighting and Walkway Lighting / Path Lighting. He demonstrates time saving techniques of the trade to help the viewer who may have little to no low voltage outdoor landscape lighting experience. With calm and clear explanations, HandyDad.TV guides you through the process just like a good Father would when showing you the process. HandyDad.TV lives up to his motto “Your Virtual Dad in the Cloud.” After watching his video, we believe you will have the confidence to install LED low voltage outdoor landscape lighting in your yard, garden or business.

    The low voltage LED outdoor lights HandyDad.TV installed in his beautiful backyard can be easily purchased from our complete kits section and most popular LED lights section of our website.

    Here is a list of the low voltage outdoor lights used in his video:

    Black LED Low Voltage Outdoor Landscape Lighting Spot Light LED-FG1021-BK LED-FG1021-BK
    Spot Light
    Rust LED low voltage outdoor landscape lighting hat path light LED-S215-RU LED-S215-RU
    Hat Path Light
    Bronze LED low voltage outdoor landscape lighting flower path light LED-S220-BR LED-S220-BR
    Flower Path Light
    Black LED low voltage outdoor landscape lighting flood light LED-6011-BK LED-6011-BK
    Flood Light

    The accent lighting or directional lighting HandyDad.TV used in his video was our popular non-corrosive composite fiberglass LED spot light LED-FG1021-BK that is part of our complete kits or can be purchased separately with Free shipping. HandyDad.TV wonderfully explains the reasons he chose this low voltage outdoor landscape light and we’ll let you watch to find out more :)

    The second type of outdoor low voltage lighting HandyDad.TV installed in his backyard was Walkway or Path Lighting. His choice to use our LED LED-S215-RU China hat path light and the LED-S220-BR flower light couldn’t have been better and how he placed it in his yard, well, it’s worth the watch.

    The third type of lighting HandyDad.TV implemented in his installation video was Area Lighting or Flood Lighting. Using our LED-6011-BK flood light to illuminate a voluminous tree, he knew that a wider angle of light was required and that the narrower spot light would not provide the right type of light. His placement of the light really brought a magical touch to his backyard that is very pleasing to the eye.

    If you are looking at solving problems around your home or property we strongly recommend subscribing to HandyDad.TV on YouTube. He has hundreds of helpful videos that will give you the confidence to tackle a myriad of projects you thought you never could.

    We also provide many helpful outdoor landscape lighting videos that dive deep into many of the nuances of low voltage outdoor landscape lighting that will help you along your way with your project. Please stop by our resources page to find out more :)

  • Our Recessed Lighting Parts Save the Day!

    6-IN-SOCKET-PLATE-BOLT-NUTYou read that right. Our recessed lighting parts saved the day! We were recently contacted through our Contact Us page by a contractor in distress. He asked if our 6" recessed housing socket plate would fit the existing cans in his customer's ceiling. Our team of experts quickly responded with additional questions to make sure our product would fit.

    ThFloating socket recessed housinge problem was that the recessed can had a floating / suspended socket that dangled from the housing requiring it be attach to the trim. The recessed trim his customer purchased  was not designed to have the socket attach to it. Thankfully he found us online and contacted us right away. Turns out our 6" recessed lighting socket plate with attachment screw would work perfectly. Our recessed can parts saved the day saving him time and money over alternative solutions.

    If you ever have a question about any of our products on our website contact us through our Contact Us page and our professional and knowledgeable staff will be happy to help.
