Let's consider each of them separately.

Important! Wiring accessories Legrand are most often supplied separately from the frames, so when buying sockets and switches, you need to consider what frames you need to choose for them. Frames from different series are most often not interchangeable, due to their shape.

Celiane - a fresh look at familiar forms

Legrand's Celiane range is characterized by round openings in the frame for sockets or switches. The keys of the light switches can be narrow and wide, and are also made in 4 colors:

  • Ivory;
  • white;
  • titanium;
  • graphite.

Celiane Series

There are 44 types of Celiane frames available. Different colors and materials are available here: plastic, metal (copper, steel, aluminum and others), stone, wood, leather and other design solutions. The group, which the manufacturer called “moire”, is distinguished by pure and bright colors, such as white gloss, ivory, white, turquoise, purple yellow or orange moire. They are suitable for rooms made in a minimalist style with bright splashes. “Materials”, like leather, stone and walnut, are suitable for rooms in a classic or English style, and “metallic” is suitable for high-tech offices.

Materials and colors Celiane

Attention: the number of colors and series may vary from year to year. This applies to each of the series discussed in this article.

Legrand frames themselves are not only single and double, they can contain from 1 to 5 posts, as well as oval holes for multimedia modules.

Framework Celiane

One of the chips of the Celiane series is a socket with a recessed panel. This prevents dust accumulation. And also, as the manufacturer claims, it increases safety, since the contacts in this case move away from the holes, because it is the decorative panel that moves, and the base with the contacts remains stationary.

Recessed wall socket

Also, the Legrand Celiane series is interesting in that you can upgrade products. For example, to convert a single-key switch into a two-key switch, you just need to break out the plugs and add one mechanism.

Valena Life is distinguished by rounded corners with square frames, the key is curved along the axis of its movement. While Allure shapes are soft, the sides are not straight, but rounded.

Valena Life and Allure

If Life is an immortal classic, vaguely reminiscent of switches and sockets from the USSR, and is suitable for any room, then Allure is suitable for a cozy bedroom because of its soft outlines.

The mechanisms of the Life and Allure series are interchangeable, they are called “IN’MATIC”, the connection is made using screwless clamps. Legrand steel calipers are coated with an insulating polycarbonate layer. The presence of calipers facilitates the installation of several sockets and switches in a row.

All live parts of Legrand sockets and switch mechanisms are insulated, accidental contact during installation or maintenance is excluded. Assembly of frames and front panel without screws, on latches.

To summarize

We examined what types of sockets and switches there are by Legrand by series. It is impossible to unequivocally answer which models are better to choose, because the mechanisms of switches and sockets are equally good. For an apartment, the best option should be chosen based more on the design, the Mosaic series has been created for the office, and for use outdoors, in the bathroom or the workshop, choose protected products, for example, Quteo, Soliroc or Plexo. The choice depends on the environmental conditions, method and location.

Almost all series have products compatible with the MyHome smart home system and the MyHome Play wireless radio system, which operates via the ZigBee protocol. Also in all series there are both information sockets for connecting television, audio and the Internet, as well as power, as well as various multimedia modules.

The prices in the article are for the cheapest product at the time of writing (early 2019).It is worth considering that models made of natural materials - stone and other things are orders of magnitude more expensive. For example, a Legrand Celiane frame trimmed with leather costs about 5500.
