Why Umbra


Maximise & Manage

LightContrary to what you might think, we love natural light! Lots of it!

From Daylight Saving to solar panels, there are many innovations designed to make the most of this free natural resource. Windows and glass facades are no exception.

But in order to maximise the daylight in our workplaces we must manage it. Too much can be worse than not enough.

Just as we need controllable and adjustable artificial lighting to compensate for low natural light levels, so we need controllable and adjustable shading to manage high natural light levels.

Umbra’s range of Brighter Shading Solutions puts you firmly in control.


Protection & Wellbeing

PeopleFor most companies, their people are their greatest investment. For service providers, such as healthcare and education, the people they serve are the reason they exist.

Looking after these people and ensuring their safety and comfort is therefore of prime importance.

Many of us spend most of our lives in buildings. The benefits of natural daylight and good external views are proven to lift our mood and promote a sense of wellbeing. This leads to greater productivity and achievement.

But solar glare and heat gain can be detrimental, leading to uncomfortable and unsafe conditions.

Umbra’s range of Brighter Shading Solutions brings you the benefits of daylight without the detriments.


Enhance & Sustain

EnvironmentWe are responsible for our impact on our environment and the legacy we leave future generations. The good news is we CAN make a difference!

From simple things like improving the appearance of buildings to create pleasant places to live and work. To hidden efficiencies that reduce energy consumption, carbon emissions and running costs.

There are many components to sustainable building design and at Umbra we are passionate about one important element. Enhancing the appearance and efficiency of buildings through innovative shading solutions. Making the most of natural resources responsibly and effectively.

Umbra’s range of Brighter Shading Solutions helps you take care of your environment.
