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.
Personality is an important component of any room design. With the Gira Esprit design line, you can turn your walls into stylish visual highlights with high-quality materials such as glass, metal, stainless steel or linoleum-plywood.
Gira System 106
With the modular Gira System 106, door intercom systems can be individually configured, visually adapted to any exterior front or used as a design highlight. As a counterpart to the Gira indoor stations, it offers all required functions such as a doorbell, camera, name plate and house number on the outside of the front door. Robust materials and modern technologies ensure convenience and safety. An additional benefit is the compatibility with all Gira home stations and door communication solutions.
Gira pushbutton sensor 4
Our pushbutton sensor 4 is evidence that even switches can be versatile. An elegant, minimalist surface conceals smart technology beneath which allows you to control different units in your KNX system, such as blinds and lighting. The pushbutton is available in versions with two, four or eight separately freely assignable buttons. The Gira pushbutton sensor 4 is now available in additional high-quality materials. Choose between stainless steel coated bronze (PVD) and lacquered aluminium in pure white glossy and pure white matt as well as anthracite, black matt and grey matt.
