E3 White Dimmer
GIRA E3 white dimmer

E3 White Dimmer

From £59.00

The E3 Pure White is a hard-working but stylish replacement for your basic plastic switches. It features wide rockers, an easy-to-clean glossy surface and the same gentle rounded contours of the rest of the E3 range.

The rotary dimmer units, made by ION in the Netherlands, are “universal” LED dimmers, meaning that they can work in both dimming principles (Leading Edge and Trailing Edge). They are available in load ratings of 200W or 350W.

If you require a different dimmer version, such as a 1-10V controller or “satellite” dimmers, please get in touch.

Gira has a huge range of wiring products, functions and devices that can be combined with these frames. Contact us for information on other options if you can’t find what you’re looking for.

What does an electrician call this?

This is a 1-gang 2-way dimmer (Leading Edge or Trailing Edge)

Where is this used in the home?

A 1-gang 2-way dimmer is commonly used for controlling a single light source from one or two places.



Because of the modular nature of European wiring accessories, installation is slightly different to fitting the encapsulated (moulded) switches and sockets common in the UK. Have a look at the step-by-step pictures below, or consult the more detailed Gira rocker switch installation instructions.

Does this cover a standard british back box?

How deep does the back box need to be?
This needs a slightly deeper box, at least 35mm.

The concept

In case we here at Swtch needed any more proof that even humble white plastic light switches can transform an interior, along comes the new E3 range from Gira in Germany.

This purists’ version of the E3 Soft Touch range combines gentle contours with a minimalist square rocker and clean white glossy finish.
