The Acorn 3-Light and Track Kit offers excellent value as an entry into the Robus Acorn or Madison (interchangeable) track lighting systems. It can be used as a standalone installation, or linked to other track pieces up to a maximum length of 30 metres. The kit includes a 1-metre length of track and three fully adjustable spotlight heads. Each head allows a full 360° rotation and a 90°tilting action.
A 1-metre length of Acorn or Madison track can accommodate up to four light heads, which means this kit is expandable by one light (sold separately). Track pieces are available from Lyco in a choice of lengths, and can be joined if required using in-line connectors (also sold separately). The track pieces can be cut to your desired size, allowing a precisely customised lighting system.
One great advantage of a track lighting system is the ability to accommodate any repositioning of décor, furnishings or artworks. The light heads can be easily moved to a new position along the track length, without any rewiring. A track lighting system allows extreme fine tuning of light, as opposed to more restrictive ‘bar ceiling lights’, where light heads are immovable.
This mains-voltage kit offers Class 1 electrical protection, and thus requires a connection to electrical earth during installation. No transformer is required for its use. An IP20 rating signifies zero protection against water, so the Acorn Kit is unsuitable for bathroom or washroom siting.
This product comes with a reassuring 2-year manufacturer’s guarantee.
The Robus Acorn 3-Light and Track Kit comes complete with its required 3 x 50W halogen GU10 bulbs, which connect through secure 2-pin ‘twist and lock’ GU10 caps.
Halogen GU10 bulbs inherently produce a warm white light, and offer superb colour rendering with a default maximum CRI 100 score. They are also dimmable, so you can dim the light of this track-lighting kit in conjunction with an existing dimmer switch.
One extra spotlight head can be added to this kit (sold separately), which can be either halogen or LED. In the case of the latter a dimmable LED bulb is included, whilst the former requires separate purchase of a halogen GU10 lamp.
The dimensions of the Robus Acorn 3-Light and Track Kit are:
