Gira System 3000 blind controller

The Gira System 3000 blind controller range is made up of three products: the Standard and Memory operating top units and the blind timer with display. Gira offers the standard top unit with or without inscription. This enables the blind to be controlled manually in any position. Individual positions – for example for ventilation purposes – can also be saved. The Memory operating top unit also saves a time for the blinds to be raised and lowered each day: a simple matter using key combinations. It also features a blocking function to prevent users from being accidentally locked outside.

Three appearances on the winners podium

Radevormwald/Frankfurt, Janurary 15, 2018. Every year, the Frankfurt-based German Design Council honours "innovative top performances from every area of the interior design industry" with its "Iconic Award: Innovative Interior". This year, more than 400 interior design products submitted entries for the prestigious prize. And in this third year of the competition, three prizewinners were provided by Gira Giersiepen GmbH & Co. KG (www.gira.com) from Radevormwald. In the "Building fixtures" category, the international jury singled out both the Gira E2 stainless steel design line and the Gira X1 app for the highest accolade "Best of the Best", which was only awarded to 30 entrants in total. The plastic variant of the Gira E2 design line was honoured as a winner. The prizes will be awarded on 14 January 2018 at the Kölnischer Kunstverein, on the eve of the international furniture trade fair "imm cologne". The winning entries will then be on display in their own exhibition at the museum from 15 to 21 January 2018.
