Installing Track Lights

Hello, 1st time on here.

I am in the process of in stalling a drop ceiling and I was wondering if I can install Track Lights on a drop ceiling? If so, how would that be done?


Thanks.

You can, by affixing the track to the T-bars somehow.

Yep, its done all the time. Next time your in a restaurant with a drop ceiling look around, there is lots of it in use. Just drop your switch leg to the live end, and go to work. Check with a local Electrical supply house (not Home Depot) for Caddy brackets for drop ceilings. I forget the part number, but it has a 1/4-20 bolt in the center, and it twists onto the framework of the drop ceiling track. You may have to drill the track in a few places to support it correctly, but its no big deal. I've hung miles of this way.
