Gira, one of the world’s leading full-range suppliers of intelligent system solutions for building management, announce the Gira System 55 modular system is now able to yield even more design options thanks to Gira Studio, a dynamic intelligent control solution in three installation variants and Plug + Light, a new specification product which unites light control and power supply.
Enabling premium specifiers like interior designers, architects and property developers the ability to equip buildings with the latest technology, Gira System 55 now offers a range of new and contemporary design aesthetics, which provide a greater distinction between the varying systems, controls and functions in operation.
Offering more than 300 functions, Gira System 55 can now be specified in the leading edge designs of Gira Studio, where each frame in the collection displays precise workmanship and surface processing.
For those looking for a streamlined, ultra-modern aesthetic, Gira recommend its Flush Mounted solution – a contemporary design with sleek attributes accentuated by a lustrous glass cover frame. Gira Studio Flush Mounted frames can be used for single or multiple installations, either horizontally or vertically.
In contrast, for a more traditional look, Gira recommends its Surface Mounted design which is available in high-quality glass or shatter-proof thermoplastic. The period-style design takes its inspiration from the historically round dome light switches so popular in the early 20th century.
It can be installed as a single solution for controlling the lights but again is also ideal for multiple installations, both horizontally and vertically. It thus offers endless design options and a virtually unlimited variety of functions in the Gira System 55.
Meanwhile, Plug + Light makes indoor lighting smart and light control incredibly simple. Plug + Light is a defined interface which unites light control and power supply. Combined with appropriate light top units, Plug + Light offers easily controllable indoor lighting – from dimming to warm dim. The open system can be used in the most common flush-mounted device boxes, also in British Standard, and besides the controller, it reconfigures the handling of the associated light top units
The installation of a Plug + Light lamp is designed to be incredibly simple – the lamps are docked to the light socket outlet via a convenient and powerful magnet. Once inserted into the Plug + Light socket outlet, each lamp can freely rotate 360° and even be replaced during operation.
Providing even more design options, the Plug + Light socket outlet can also be designed in the style of Gira E2, Gira Esprit and Gira Studio, giving you greater choice and design freedom.
Mark Booth, Managing Director, Gira UK comments “Both our Gira Studio Design Line and Plug + Light series allow smart technology to be more easily accessible to the end user. We achieve this through leading edge design and applied methodology that is designed to enrich lifestyles and contemporary built environments.“
“Taking the Gira System 55 modular system to new levels of design, both Gira Studio and Plug + Light is able to support more than 300 functions so flexible indoor lighting and blind control for example, can come to life for the end customer with ease: as well as provide an infallible solution for professional electricians, installers and system integrators.”
