A great companion to mid-century design and furniture, the materials of this range set it apart from any other switch we’ve seen. It has a smooth matt surface, a slightly raised profile and the well-proportioned modernist shape of Gira’s Esprit range. These certified British Standard sockets are available as singles or doubles, switched or unswitched – and even in different socket cover finishes!
Gira sockets are available with and without small isolation switches. Unswitched sockets are less common in the UK, but they are perfectly safe and compliant with building regulations.
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.
