Planning to renovate your bathroom? This is the perfect opportunity not only to retrofit socket outlets, but also to update any sockets you already have. Safety standards for socket outlets in the bathroom have changed over the years. Socket outlets for hairdryers, electric toothbrushes and shavers must be equipped with RCD protection, and all socket outlets in bathrooms must be installed in specific areas of the room. These rules help to mitigate risks arising from short circuits or from water getting into electrical appliances. Always consult a local specialist partner for advice.
A particular highlight of the Gira RCD-protected socket outlet: The internal socket unit is designed for compatibility with all other frames in the Gira socket outlet range, enabling you to change your frames if you change your bathroom decor. You can choose from 11 design lines with over 90 frame variants. The same is also true of Gira light switches – so you can match your socket outlets to your switches. Use our design configurator to see how your chosen products will look in your home.
In the bathroom, socket outlets and switches are often splashed with water. So it’s a good idea to opt for easy-care surfaces. The Gira Esprit glass design line is ideal for use in the bathroom. These wipe-down glass frames are available in black, white, mint and umber. Or what about the Gira E3 design line? The soft-touch rubber surface is not only exceptionally easy to keep clean, but also feels pleasant to the touch and is available in 16 different colour combinations.
