What is Monorail Lighting?

What sets monorail lighting apart from most other lighting techniques is its deeply customizable styling options. The main difference from its popular twin, track lighting, is that monorail lighting features flexible rails that allow for creating curved tracks while other lighting systems (such as the common track lighting) are restricted in their installation. Since monorail lighting can be bent for circular installations and hung from slanting ceilings, it offers the potential for unique applications of lighting within the home.

Monorail lighting systems are comprised of a single rail where either monorail lighting pendants or heads are attached. The monorail is a two-conductor, low-voltage rail that can be cut to custom lengths and joined with other rails with connectors to provide longer runs. You can choose between straight and geometric shapes for your rail so that any home and any light scheme can be accommodated.

Crafting a flexible track lighting system for your home takes a little more consideration than applying a simple light source such as a wall sconce. For one, you need to make sure that your lighting heads and pendants will fit into the track that you choose. Also, since monorail lighting systems are usually low voltage, they require their own transformers. Depending on your installation requirements, the type of transformer you choose can vary between surface mounted and remote options.
