Gira, a supplier of intelligent system solutions for building management, create new opportunities for urban renewal with the launch of two new surface-mounted solutions for the Gira E2 and Gira Standard 55 Design Lines:

Compatible with 300 functional inserts via the Gira System 55, you can expand and adapt each Gira switch-system as required, and now have the option to interchange between Design Lines and choice of flat or surface-mounted installation. Resulting in a more design oriented, architectural approach to interconnected technologies in the home, the new surface-mounted Gira E2 and Gira Standard 55 Design Lines are available to UK markets from 1st April 2020.

Helping system integrators, interior designers and architects to offer a more custom level of home automation and building management, this new range of surface-mounted options by Gira help combat the rising need for systematic light fittings, power points and switches devoid of cables and wiring.

“With a quarter of UK housing stock dating back to the 1980’s, our greatest challenge is to bring the latest technology to outdated home electrics. The new surface-mounted Gira E2 and Gira Standard 55 solutions are perfect for retrofitting older properties and answer the growing trend for urban renewal where commercial properties, warehouses and brownfield sites continue to be repurposed for residential use” says Mark Booth, Managing Director, Gira UK.
