Heads:rack heads are short, typically adjustable, and mostly directional light fixtures that attach directly to a track system. They do not hang down low from the track. Most track heads have an adjustable arm that allows the fixture to pivot, and allows the light flow to move around and highlight a specific object, or wash a wall.
Pendants:Track pendants will connect directly to the track power feed. They are usually more decorative than track heads and look just like ceiling pendants.
Tracks:Track rails can be double or 2-circuit rails, or single circuit or monorails. They can also be either low voltage or line voltage. Track rails can be either rigid or straight, or they can be bendable or flexible.
Kits:Track Kits are additional items a track lighting set would need in order to function properly. Some items may include: track, track heads, and supports. If the track system is low voltage, system would also require a transformer.
