Are there any precautions necessary when mounting track lighting?
Track lighting is relatively easy to install and can provide a wide variety of lighting possibilities. If you plan to install lighting that plugs directly into an electrical outlet, your only concern should be that the wire is not too close, or touching, the track lighting. When installing permanently mounted lights, make sure that the power has been cut off, either at the circuit breaker or fuse box, before you start. It would be preferable to screw the track into a ceiling beam, if it is ideally located. If it is not convenient to attach it to a ceiling beam, it is not the end of the world. Most track lights are light enough that they can be held in place using a toggle bolt. The wiring for track lighting is standard and easy to install.
