Guide to Perifo track lighting

Perifo track lighting is modular in design, meaning that it’s made up of building blocks that fit together to make one track lighting unit.

What you should know

Rails and connectors

Design the size and shape of your track lighting.

Choose the rails

You’ve got three options that let you lay out your track lighting to fit any space.

0.5 m

The shortest of the bunch, this rail creates smaller turns and keeps your track lighting compact.

1 m

This mid-sized rail suits most spaces and will comfortably fit a number of lights.

1.5 m

The longest rail creates impressive track lighting and offers lots of space for longer lights.

Choose the connectors

Create long and straight sections and 90-degree angles. Make sure to pick the right one – connectors don’t just join rails, but they also complete the electrical connection!

Create straight section

Use the straight connector to make straight track lighting.

Create a corner

Use an external corner connector to make your track lighting turn to the right or left.

What you should know

Lights

Each light clicks right into the rail, so you can rearrange them, add more later or replace them with different lights.

Choose your lights

Each light takes up space on the rail and uses wattage from the power supply unit. When choosing your lights, ensure that your rails can fit the lights and that the power supply unit can support the wattage.
