Can a solid 8 foot section be substituted for the (2) 4 foot sections that come in the kit?
The manufacturer does carry this Track Monorail Lighting Kit with a length of 48 inches which is 4 feet. The item number for that is 4810921S, you can put that item number in our website search bar and it should bring you right to it. Then you can select your finish and shade finish.
What accessories are needed to install this kit on a sloped or vaulted ceiling. I know about the extensions, but what about elbows or pivets?
There are several accessories available, depending on how you want to direct your installation. Is your installation going to go in the same direction as the slope or in the opposite direction of the slope?

Great unit, easy installation. If I did it again I would probably use regular drywall anchors, and not the included plastic screw-type anchors. I found it easy to bend the rails into an 'S' shape. I have it on a dimmer. Wonderful value.
This is well designed and very elegant - loos great in my kitchen. Only problem was we had a defective part at first - the two tracks would not connect and bulbs would be lit only in one track but not the second. called the store and they had a replacement part shipped quickly. So that was a major hassle, because we spent a lot of time trying to figure out why it was not working and whether we had done something wrong in the assembly. That aside, great product, quick shipping, and good customer service.
I spent many hours on the web looking for just the right style track lighting for to go with mid-century modern home. I saw kits that were two to three times the price and, luckily, found this one. It's a great value in my opinion.
I spent many hours looking for the perfect light for my kitchen and this was it. I am extremely pleased with the quality and looks. I can't comment on ease of installation because it was professionally installed.
How would you rank the quality of instructions and ease of installation/set-up?
