For 6,000 years, bronze has served as a splendid symbol of technological progress. With its classic aesthetics and high durability, the material is also part of the Gira design lines and the System 106 (delivery date to be announced).
Poseidon in Athens, Big Ben in London, St. Peter’s Bell in Cologne: many monuments that redefined the limits of their time were made from bronze. Today, the material is still used for trail-blazing technology – including data transfer and energy storage. Its sophisticated appeal and beaming colour continue to inspire extraordinary designs. Within the Gira product range, bronze is used for the finishes of light switches and pushbutton sensors.
Physical vapour deposition (PVD) is state-of-the-art when it comes to high-quality material processing. The technique has proven indispensable for aerospace, shipping, bridge building, and Gira technology – simply any industry that requires the best quality standards. Bronze is evaporated into a wafer-thin, closed nanocoating which counteracts outgassing and corrosion. This lends a special warmth and brilliance to Gira products with bronze-coloured surfaces, such as the smart Gira pushbutton sensor 4.
Bronze not only stands out with its elegant optics. Beyond that, the material has excellent mechanical properties: Gira Esprit switches in bronze are scratch-proof, hygienic, and robust. Edges milled by 45° create captivating light reflexes in their colouring. Soft and smooth, the surface turns every touch into a haptic experience. Another benefit: the PVD coating is recyclable and thus environmentally friendly.
In living spaces, bronze-coloured details convey a sense of sophisticated comfort. There’s enough room to let your creativity run wild: as part of the Gira System 55, switches from the Gira design lines can be mixed and matched with more than 300 different functional inserts. This allows you to configure a setup that fits your personal style perfectly – from subtle accents to extravagant eye-catchers.
Any room in your home should reflect your own personality. The Gira Esprit design line invites you to give your walls a unique make-over with high-quality materials: from glass and stainless steel to linoleum-plywood.
Gira System 106
The modular Gira System 106 enables you to configure door intercom systems according to your requirements. As the counterpart to Gira indoor stations, it covers all essential functions including doorbell, camera, name plate, and house number at the entrance. Robust materials and modern technology ensure a high level of convenience and safety. Another benefit: Gira System 106 is compatible with all Gira home stations and door communication solutions.
Gira pushbutton sensor 4
The Gira pushbutton sensor 4 proves that even switches can be extremely versatile. Smart technology hidden behind a sleek surface allows you to operate different devices and functions in your KNX system. The Gira product range includes sets of two, four, or eight buttons that can be assiged individually. Now available in new, high-quality materials: choose between stainless-steel coated bronze (PVD) and lacquered aluminium in pure white glossy or pure white matt, as well as anthracite, black matt, and grey matt.
