Sleek and stylish switches
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.
