The rails usually come in a variety of finishes in four different sizes – 2′, 4′, 6′, and 8′. They are easily bendable by hands, which provide various creative possibilities. If you’re cutting rejoining the rails, make sure you order additional connectors.

b. Shape it in the way you desire it to look
c. Mark the end of the rail
d. Measure the length of the rail, keeping the size of the space in mind where you want to install it.
e. Put end caps for perfect finishing.

2. Identify How Far You Want to Drop the System from the Ceiling

You will need standoffs supports for dropping the rail from your room’s ceiling at every three feet of the monorail run and at the corners. You can use standoffs to cover joining points in the rails. For giving your lighting systems a cleaner and elegant look, use adjustable standoffs that have cables which virtually disappear.
