As an alternative to common flush-mounting installation in a 58 mm flush-mounted box, the new Gira E22 switch range offers the option of a new easy mounting procedure with which the cover frame is just 3 mm thick when installed on the wall.

Gira E22 is available in the three materials stainless steel, aluminium and thermoplastic [pure white glossy]. This enables equipment in a uniform design while at the same time differentiating according to value, e.g. with a stainless-steel version in the representative area and thermoplastic in the basic rooms.

Gira E22 was winner of the iF award and the red dot award 2007.

Assortment

With its large assortment, the Gira E22 meets the special needs of intelligent building technology. The switch range includes over 230 functions for all types of mounting. The majority of these can be installed flush with the cover frame for all three materials [1]. Some exceptions however cannot be installed flush with the frame due to their design [2]. Examples of this are the hygrostat, the radio room temperature sensor, the info display and the surface-mounted home station from the Gira door communication system.
