Freeline F44
A revolutionary and entirely flexible non-track, track system, created by the designer Flynn Talbot, Freeline allows an entirely creative design beyond any track through the patent pending cable design. The field-cuttable aluminum bars up to 118" can hold three types of lights - a 10 or 30 degree spotlight, a floodlight and a white blown-glass globe - to create different light effects and new reversible shapes and compositions. The black anodized aluminum bars are fastened to one another through clamps. Product Highlights: LED 24V, Remote Phosphor - 8 W - White 3000K - 600LM CRI 80 - 3000K 600LM. The 60 W driver powers up to 7 fixtures bars and can be connected through a remote driver or within 4' Sq J-box above Freeline.

Notes

Freeline can be considered a non-track, track system. It is everything a track system is not. It’s round, it’s not powered, and if offers design flexibility well beyond lighting.

Step 1 - Start with the structure. It isn’t powered and it’s round. With the connectors, you don’t have to go only in one direction or think in plane (floor, ceiling, wall, table). The concept is similar to nature; a tree, or a plant. Start at the ground, connect to the wall, angle to the ceiling, spoke out in 3 directions, etc.

Step 2: Add design elements. With the clip system developed for Freeline, the sky is the limit. Create a shelf hanging from the structure. Add a plant. Connect your speakers. Add decorations. Hang signage. The lighting structure becomes the architectural plane.

Step 3: Add lighting. The system offers 3 variations of lighting (Frosted Blown Glass Globe, 120 degree flood light, and spot light with a 10 and 30 degree optic). Each will clip onto the structure and the wiring tucks away into the grooves of the channel. With a 60W driver hidden in a canopy at the head of any structure connection point, each driver can power up to 7 fixtures. Use the lighting in the system to light the space or the architectural accessories added in step 2.
