“As a 24-year Secured by Design member, security has always been at our heart”

Leading UK manufacturer, supplier and installer of premium quality engineered timber doors and windows, Glasgow’s Russell Timber Technology have renewed their membership with Secured by Design (SBD).

Russell Timber Technology is a family run company dating back to 1888. From its origins as a joinery firm specialising in door manufacturing, the business has evolved and diversified throughout the years. Today the company is able to offer its clients across the UK a complete solution that is specific to their project requirements. It does this through design, manufacture, supply and installation of precision-engineered Timber and Alu-Clad Doors, Windows and Curtain Walling systems from its base in Glasgow, with products supplied throughout the United Kingdom. 

The business specialises in supplying beautiful, advanced, engineered timber doors and windows for both new build and refurbishment, typically in large scale housing projects, city apartments, social housing and Eco homes. 

What sets the company apart is ongoing investment in both training and state of the art equipment, which not only speeds up production but allows much more flexibility in terms of meeting the client’s specification and the needs of the build. Russell Timber Technology boasts its own in-house estimating team, design team, drawing office and fitting teams allowing control over the entire process from start to finish, an innovative approach that has attributed to its success and longevity in the industry.
