Mix & Match: design tailored to your needs.

Your socket outlets should match your switches as much as your overall interior. That’s why we have developed the modular Gira System 55: all components of the Gira design lines have uniform measurements of 55 x 55 mm. This includes both switches and socket outlets, along with other smart devices. You can thus freely combine or exchange frame variants in all kinds of colours, shapes, and materials.

Reliable companions in everyday life.

Computer or smartphones at the home office, toaster and coffee machine in the kitchen, TV and loudspeakers in the living room – socket outlets are indispensable in any room

But Gira products are more than a power supply: they serve as orientation lights or chargers for mobile devices and can even be installed outdoors.
