Lighting Option for Original Gallery System

Art Gallery Lighting option by Gallery System Art Displays

 

Our optional Lighting System is used by art galleries and art display professionals worldwide

The Gallery System Lighting System option, one of the few available picture hanging system lighting alternatives, provides gallery quality illumination in a sleek, integrated package. Used by art galleries and art display professionals worldwide.

The Lighting System works with Original Gallery System tracks (not compatible with the GalleryOne system). The light wands simply lock onto the same track that hangs your art. A hidden flat power cable, that can be easily fitted onto the top of the track, carries 12-volt current along the track.

If you use the lighting system, recommended height of the track is 8 feet from the floor, with pictures mounted near eye level (about 5 feet above the floor).

The main components of the lighting system are the same Original Gallery System tracks that support your art; light wands; lamps; power cable; junction box; and transformer to convert wall current to low voltage (12 volt) current.

  • Low voltage moveable light wands lock onto Original Gallery System track at any point
  • The light can be aimed to illuminate artworks at different heights (for best results, art should be centered 20 to 40 inches below the track)
  • Light wands are easily moved when art displays change
  • With lighting closer to the art, low wattage lamps can highlight your pictures without generating potentially harmful heat
  • Low voltage (12 volt) current is completely safe to handle
  • Low wattage lamps mean lower electricity costs
  • LED lamps available for even lower electricity costs

Pricing information is available on our lighting price/data sheet

Gallery Quality Lighting in an Art Hanging System

Lamps

Long life, low energy consumption lamps illuminate your art from close enough to bring pictures to life.  These low wattage lamps (on right) are standard 12-volt MR-16 bulbs. They provide gallery-quality lighting while protecting your art from damaging heat and keeping utility bills low.

  • Lamps closer to the art highlight your pictures better
  • Economical 5,000 hour halogen lamps
  • LED lamps (on left) are available for even lower electricity costs, even longer life, and even less heat emissions

 Light wands

Sleek, stylish and easy to install, our light wands lock onto our standard wall-mounted track at any point, and can be moved or adjusted as needed. They draw power from a hidden power cable that delivers safe 12-volt current to contact probes on the wand base. The wand design enables use of cool-running low-wattage bulbs so you can get gallery-quality illumination without exposing your art to damaging heat.

  • Easy to move the lights when you move the art
  • The light can be aimed to illuminate artworks at different heights (for best results, art should be centered 20 to 40 inches below the track)
  • Up to 12 halogen lamps, spread over up to 60 feet of track, can be powered from one transformer — larger installations should use multiple transformers
  • With LED lamps, up to 35 wands can be powered from one transformer

    Power Cable

    Sturdy flat cable fits easily into a channel on top of the wall-mounted track, where it is held in place with double-sided adhesive tape (included). The cable is hidden from sight and wraps easily around corners. When a light wand is locked into place, contact probes connect to the cable's conductors to deliver safe 12-volt power to the bulb.

    • Easy to install
    • Low voltage (12 volt) current is completely safe to handle

    Junction Box

    Installs next to the wall-mounted track, connecting the power cable to the 12-volt power supply from the transformer — it also incorporates circuit breakers to prevent electrical overload.

    • Wall-mounted — easy to install
    • Low voltage (12 volt) current is completely safe to handle
