Monorail supports and hardware consists of the essential pieces that help to suspend the monorail down from the ceiling. When paired with the right heads and track, these elements offer the opportunity for very flexible placement of monorail lighting fixtures and give you the ability to mount lighting up near the ceiling or dramatically dangling down. Different height monorails can help you create a beautiful and functional light system that perfectly suits your space.
When searching for the right monorail supports for your monorail system, keep in mind that there are two main types to choose from: stems and power feeds.
Stems – A support stem offers the structural backbone to hold a monorail system at the proper height. Aside from their functional use, the stems can also be slightly decorative, coming in a range of different lengths, widths, colors, and finishes to coordinate with any space.
Power Feed – The power feed fills the crucial role of carrying electrical power down from wiring in the ceiling to the monorail track where it can be used by the fixtures that are attached. Monorail power feeds may require a specially shaped track canopy than the stems do, so be sure to check the specifications to get components that are compatible. Regardless of what type of power feed your monorail track lighting uses, most systems will only require one to operate the whole fixture, making it much quicker and simpler to do the wiring for a whole room of lighting.
Naturally, you’ll want to purchase both the stems and power feeds in the same length and style to ensure that your fixture looks balanced and uniform. If, however, you would prefer that your monorail system comes with all the coordinating pieces already together, be sure to take a look at our monorail lighting kits, which have everything you need already included.
