Welcome to Taurus Littrow, a leading provider of bespoke, high quality sun screening and blinds. Located in Bingham, near Nottingham, we were formed in 1993 to meet the growing demand for solar shading or Brise Soleil for improved energy management and daylight control in the workplace and public buildings.
The Taurus Littrow team have many years’ experience in the solar shading industry. Our skills bring value and quality to any project involving the solar shading of buildings and other special bespoke design briefs and budget constraints.
This expertise and knowledge allows us to tackle the challenges of every project individually, building close links with the architects and design team at an early stage to advise on the most appropriate system to achieve the function and aesthetic requirements.
As well as a friendly, professional service, we offer in-house design, installation and a range of proven, high specification solar shading products, not only from Taurus Littrow but sourced from Europe’s best manufacturers. You’ll find the Taurus Littrow name on a host of prestigious projects led by the UK's leading architects.
As architects and developers are increasingly focused on energy consumption, the pressures to make significant reductions in carbon dioxide emissions increase. So, glass buildings and problems of heat gain become more prevalent. Tackling these issues at an early stage is essential by considering the options available to provide shading. Solar shading has been shown to control heat and daylight effectively and is frequently incorporated in commercial and public building schemes. While the use of light shelves and light transport systems allow daylight to penetrate deep into a building.
In fact the Government has published a consultation paper on Part L of the Building Regulations which deals with the need to improve the energy efficiency and control of daylight in buildings. So in future, these control systems will be more commonplace.
