The new Gira E3 switch range merges gently curved contours and soft satin finishes in nine pastel shades. The colours of this particular version are the deepest neutral tones of the whole range.
The dimmer units, made by ION in the Netherlands, are “universal” LED dimmers, meaning can work in both dimming principles (Leading Edge and Trailing Edge). They are available in load ratings of 200W or 350W for the single unit, and 2 x 200W for the double (all ratings in LED).
If you require a different dimmer version, such as a 1-10V controller or “satellite” dimmers, please get in touch.
