OPTION 1: push-button 
A push-button is not a normal switch. The electric current is only transmitted when the button is pressed (for example a doorbell). 
But if a push-button is used in combination with an impulse relay in the fuse box, then it can be used as a one-way switch, a two-way switch, a timer or a stairwell switch. 
And if a push-button is used in combination with home automation then it can be used as a one-way switch, a two-way switch or a stairwell switch, a dimmer, a shutter switch, a doorbell button, a master switch, etc. 

General characteristics push-button: 

- Compatible with Ø 7 cm flush-mounted boxes. 
- Compatible with stairwell impulse relays. 
- Compatible with home automation. 
- Compatible with a timer. 

OPTION 2: push-button with universal regulator 
A push-button with a universal regulator becomes a classic switch with dimmer. 
This configuration allows you to switch off, switch on and dim a light bulb. 
If you install two push-buttons, they will function as two-way switches. 
There is no limit to the number of push-buttons that can operate a circuit. 

General characteristics push-button with universal regulator: 

- This push-button is sold with a built-in regulator, to be placed in a 7 cm Ø flush-mounted box. 
- Load for incandescent or halogen bulbs: 4W-250W 
- Load for dimmable LED bulbs: 4W-100W 
- Light intensity memory. The light varies in intensity when the button is pressed and held for a long time. 

The story behind zangra's porcelain

Soon after being established in 2009, zangra started to successfully cooperate with different porcelain factories all over the world – a cooperation that continues to this day. In recent years, zangra has spent a lot of time in world’s most famous porcelain cities. From Limoges in France to Jingdezhen in China, zangra was able to work at legendary porcelain factories. So in cooperation with the staff zangra created new models and rediscovered old forgotten molds. A number of old molds were put back in production making new pieces. zangra’s porcelain is still produced by hand, piece by piece. This makes each piece unique. zangra's work proved successful with their products being sold all over the world.

Combine your porcelain light switch with a metal outlet - or vice versa!

This range of porcelain switches and sockets was designed by zangra in 2014 and is still a "bestseller" to this day. The production process takes place in a traditional factory in Europe. One by one, each piece of clay is manufactured by craftsmen using a traditional press to form a round plate with a diameter of 10 cm. All these porcelain plates are dried, fired and glazed, one by one, by hand. Due to the overwhelming success of this product, the designers of zangra decided in 2021 to expand the collection with identical outlets and switches in metal. This makes it possible to combine your porcelain light switch with a metal outlet (of identical size) or vice versa. Zangra's metal collection of switches and outlets is available in ten different colours! So "mix and match" the colours to suit your style! If you prefer to keep it sober, you can combine the white porcelain collection with white metal. This also applies to the black porcelain collection that can be combined with black metal.
