Surface-mounted Solutions

Your lighting design often needs surface-mounted luminaires, when common challenges make track and recessed unsuitable. Consider surface-mounting when...

  • open ceiling designs.
  • plenums are too shallow for recessed fixtures.
  • budgets are too limited for track systems.
  • obstacles like beams or dropped ceilings block the lighting. Surface-mounted pendants can be extended to avoid the obstacle.
  • no dimming system. Surface-mounted IDM OBMs can be individually dimmed, without expensive and complicated track systems. 

 Surface Mounted Luminaires


All track fixtures have equivalent standard outlet-box-mounted (OBM) versions.

Combining OBMs with their track-mounted versions brings a consistent look and performance to the space.
