Product Story

The new Gira E3 switch range merges gently curved contours and soft satin finishes in nine pastel shades. Sand and Taupe are light, subtle browns but still with a mainly neutral overall hue. This “universal” dimmer can control any light source, whether it’s LEDs or conventional bulbs.


Product Options

This product is a standard R/L/LED dimmer, suitable for conventional light bulbs, halogen light bulbs and most LED light sources. If you require a more sophisticated version that allows you to adjust the dimming range to your light source, 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 10AX switch, or a 1-gang intermediate 10AX switch


Where is this used in the home?

A 1-gang 2-way switch is commonly used for controlling a single light source from one or two places. A 1-gang intermediate is used as the middle switch of three, controlling a single light source (for example in a hallway).


 

Installation

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.
