'Gang Culture' with new Gira E2 in Matt Black
Gira, the supplier of intelligent system solutions for building management, has launched Gira E2 Design Line in new Matt Black.
The E2 Design Line presents a minimalist switch range that introduces a host of new Matt Black frames and inserts for tailored specification and trend trading.
Designed to complement the Gira System 55 range, Gira E2 with new Matt Black application is also available in Stainless Steel, Anthracite, Pure White and Colour Aluminium, with the option to create a uniform or contrasting aesthetic by varying colour choice and/or values.
Offering more than 300 functions via Gira System 55, each frame in the collection displays precise workmanship and surface processing. This gives premium specifiers like interior designers, architects and property developers the ability to equip buildings with the latest technology, all with a consistent design aesthetic and distinction between the varying systems, controls and functions identified.
In addition to conventional flush-mounted installation, the new Gira E2 Design Line also offers the option of installing all switch variants: protruding 3mm from the wall.
Gira E2 can raise and lower blinds each day with the standard blind control button, offer a contactless switch with integrated LED orientation that illuminates when motion is detected, plus a comprehensive range of complementary sockets, outlets and accessories.
"Our aim is to continue designing and manufacturing intelligent build solutions which answer current trends," explains Mark Booth, managing director at Gira UK. "Black is a colour which has been elevated to new heights, now viewed as the new design classic for 2018.
"It's no secret that one of today's main concerns is finding an outlet to plug in your smartphone when it needs charging and a spare plug in any home, is now a thing of the past! Sadly, the market does not reflect this clear need for more outlets as most UK manufacturers typically offer only 1-2 gang frames, as standard. For the height of flexible design, utility and user convenience, Gira's various Design Lines of sockets and switches offer up to 3-5 gang solutions, as standard: meaning the opportunities for added intelligence and personalised features are even greater!"
