ceiling track – ceiling48 & ceiling
You are looking to install a straight line the length of the ceiling – or does your lighting design incorporate more unique features? Is the space you are designing in an old building where the lighting concept did not allow for or envisage light in this part of the room? – Buschfeld ceiling track is mounted with the aid of a few thin screws and an adapter. This simple way of mounting the track is as interesting for a permanent lighting solution as it is for a temporary installation, which is an important criterion when installing or dismantling. The design principles for Sense System (48 V) and LightLight (12 V) are initially the same. Below you will find examples of the most common applications, indicating which components are used in combination with the ceiling track. The product numbers quoted are to be read as examples; they apply to components with a white finish.
Using the Buschfeld adapter provided, the ceiling track is mounted beneath the ceiling or on the wall (see detailed drawing). The dimensions are extremely compact: the mounted profile is a mere 10 mm wide and 34 mm high, including the mounting equipment. These dimensions enable you to plan the track layout as the infrastructure for your lighting design concept. In the case of room corners / horizontal-vertical corners – using the newly developed T-connectors in a choice of angles plus cross connectors you can change the direction of the track in a choice of three directions. Given that ceiling track is very simple to install and does not intrude in the space to any significant degree, it is also possible to plan and install ceiling track in an existing space.
Besides applying straight lengths of track you can also apply ceiling track in the form of ring-shaped components, or as an entire ring-shaped section of track. With the Rondo version, be it 48 V or 12 V, you can decide what diameter you require, the smallest being 500 mm. The control gear can be flush-mounted or mounted directly on the track.
Square and Starry Sky can be found within Freestyler structures. Besides the suspended version, it may also make sense to consider planning and installing a ceiling-mounted Freestyler structure. The modular system that Freestyler is based on is there to inspire your creativity. Design the structures to fulfil your visions.
Use the sections of ceiling track as design elements. With our Freeforms it is entirely up to you what path you wish the track to take. Should you be working in a larger space and designing an extensive track layout, it is advisable to base your lighting design on a clearly defined infrastructure. Luminaires can then be distributed evenly along the track to provide appropriate / interesting accent lighting.
Here, too, Buschfeld track can form the infrastructure for a superordinate installation. Parallel tracks make it easy to position the luminaires evenly throughout the space. This can give rise to a lighting grid – with a very high number of luminaires.
Think out of the box! The new star-shaped connectors and the 45° or 60° T-connectors provide you with even more options for fulfilling your wildest design dreams.
Sense System is operated at 48 V, with lighting control provided by Casambi or Xicato Controls. LightLight (12 V track) also requires a ballast, and possibly also control. If your design incorporates a combination of Buschfeld track with a product from another company, in this case Fez DZ from Baltensweiler, please do not hesitate to ask us to check what is possible.
Dimensions in millimetres. We continually refer to the modular system on which Buschfeld lighting systems are based. When it comes to your design, this means that you can define track layouts using standard track, angles and corners available.
