Sleek and stylish switches

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - HOME & LIVING -

WHEN de­sign­ing a space, it is com­mon to con­sider how light­ing cre­ates and af­fects the am­bi­ence. How­ever, lit­tle de­tails like the type of switches we choose are of­ten ne­glected. De­tails mat­ter and add up to make a big dif­fer­ence in how a space turns out.

Sch­nei­der Elec­tric, the global spe­cial­ist in en­ergy man­age­ment, has all bases cov­ered as it pro­vides light­ing con­trol so­lu­tions that look great and work just as well, too.

An em­bod­i­ment of this stan­dard is its new range of Pieno switches. A switch panel with a clean, un­clut­tered de­sign, the Pieno has a dis­tinc­tive jumbo dolly with a sur­pris­ingly slim pro­file.

This is the re­sult of an in­no­va­tive SS Mech­a­nism, which has a three-de­gree short throw switch­ing an­gle that is half that of the con­ven­tional rocker-type switch.

It has, there­fore, earned the name “Slim Rocker”.

Also on the dolly is a white-on-white lo­ca­tor, a tiny light fea­ture that blends seam­lessly with the switch sur­face.

Dur­ing the day, it is hardly no­tice­able, but emits a soft glow in the dark­ness, let­ting you find the switch eas­ily.

Sch­nei­der Elec­tric not only presents the best of switch de­signs but in­stal­la­tion ef­fi­ciency is also taken into con­sid­er­a­tion.

The Pieno fea­tures Per­fec­tFace Switch Ar­chi­tec­ture with two patented de­signs that col­lec­tively bring un­prece­dented in­tegrity to the mov­ing parts in rocker-type switches.

As the dol­lies and sur­round­ing parts are in­te­grated into one piece, the in­stal­la­tion process is re­duced to one step while a con­sis­tent dis­tance and per­fect align­ment be­tween dol­lies and sur­round­ing parts are main­tained.

Last but not least, one does not have to worry about shoddy ren­o­va­tion work­man­ship dam­ag­ing switch plates. The grid plate is uniquely de­signed to con­tour it­self to the wall, min­imis­ing gaps be­tween the switch and an un­even wall.

Ex­ces­sive paint on the mech­a­nism can also be com­pletely cov­ered by the in­te­grated face­plate to main­tain a per­fect wall fin­ish­ing.

Such de­tailed con­sid­er­a­tions are char­ac­ter­is­tic of Sch­nei­der Elec­tric’s high-qual­ity prod­ucts. On top of this, Sch­nei­der Elec­tric pro­vides added ser­vice through its free Pieno iPhone app where you can mix and match walls with elec­tri­cal switches and sock­ets to cre­ate the per­fect home in­te­rior.

For de­tails, con­tact Sch­nei­der Elec­tric’s cus­tomer care at 1800 880 877 or any of its lo­cal dis­trib­u­tors and deal­ers. You can down­load a free Pieno brochure at www. sere­ (Key­code: 51935Y).
