Surface-mounted solutions: New switch designs for easy retrofitting in your home

Whether kitchen, children's room or home office: switches and sockets are indispensable in every living space. If you lack basic technical equipment, surface-mounted variants are available for easy retrofitting. With a Gira surface-mounted switch, you will find the right solution for every interior style and area of application.

Stay flexible – with the Gira surface-mounted switches

With a surface-mounted switch from Gira you can also bring functions to the wall where flush-mounted cables or boxes are not installed. Surface-mounted solutions are thus particularly suitable for rooms in which you want to retrofit switches and socket outlets without

prying open the walls. Your electrician can easily mount the necessary cable and surface-mounted housing on the wall.

With the inserts from the Gira System 55, the range of functions can also be adapted as desired. A practical modular concept is concealed behind the system, with which you can individually assemble, exchange and combine cover frames and switch inserts thanks to the uniform standard dimensions of 55 x 55 millimetres. The different inserts enable over 200 different functions, for example for smart blind and heating control on the wall.

Depending on the living area in which you want to retrofit switches and sockets, different design lines are available as surface-mounted variants.

Gira E2 surface-mounted switch: The timeless design classic for retrofitting

Simple and durable, the Gira E2 switch has proven itself to be a true design classic for more than 20 years now. With its straight-line form and the timeless colour pure white glossy, the Gira E2 as a surface-mounted switch is ideally suited for retrofitting indoors – and becomes a design highlight on the wall.

Gira Studio: The design highlight with a modern look

The Gira Studio switch is an all-round retrofit and a real design highlight on the wall.In the round design and the versions white glass or black glass, the surface-mounted switch not only sets great accents but also

real trends. On rough concrete walls of a loft apartment, for example, Gira Studio rounds off the urban industrial style. The Gira System 55 also serves as a practical supplement here, in order to adapt the functions of the surface-mounted range to your individual requirements. You can combine the frames made of high-quality glass and the inserts made of shatterproof plastic monochrome or in black and white contrast as you wish.

Gira Standard 55: Functional variety in classic design

You are just as flexible with the easy-care surface-mounted variant of the Gira Standard 55, which can be expanded and adapted as required. With its rounded corners and edges and the impact-resistant plastic housing in cream white or pure white glossy, this design line is ideal for basic installation in functionally oriented areas and damp rooms such as the laundry room.


Gira Profile 55: The multi-function strip for maximum flexibility

The Gira Profile 55 with its functional inserts in the standard dimensions 55 x 55 millimetres is the perfect expansion for the existing electrical installation in the kitchen, home office or other living spaces. With the multi-function strip you can realise more than 230 individual functions in no time at all. In addition to additional socket outlets, switches and mains connections, you can also retrofit a USB power supply or the Gira radio, for example, which can otherwise only be implemented as a flush-mounted installation.
