George Barnsdale & Sons Join Secured by Design

George Barnsdale & Sons Ltd is one of the latest companies to join with Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative.

Founded in 1884, George Barnsdale is a family run business manufacturing high-performance timber windows and doors in Donington, Lincolnshire. Leading the way in innovation, craftsmanship and attention to detail, their windows and doors offer superb quality which are highly customisable, suitable for home or businesses.

From the grandest of buildings and the cutest of cottages, to Victorian listed mill projects and contemporary self builds, George Barnsdale have covered all projects types. Manufacturing on the same site in Donington, Lincolnshire since 1884, their humble workshop has grown into a state-of-the-art timber windows and doors joinery manufacturer with computer-controlled laser cutting machines for precision joints, a robotic paint sprayer and an on-site research and development centre.

Combining 21st century technology with good old fashioned customer service, the business is still very much a hands-on family affair run by 5th generation Barnsdale Tom Wright. Sustainability and resilience being at the forefront of everything they do, their commitment to the environment extends beyond the FSC© certified timber they source and their sponsorship of the Woodland Trust.

They have a range of doors and windows that have achieved the Police Preferred Specification.

SBD Development Officer, Hazel Goss, said: “'It's a pleasure to have George Barnsdale & Sons Limited join as new members of Secured by Design; they offer a selection of timber doors and windows and I am looking forward to working alongside them hopefully for many years to come”.

Tom Wright, Managing Director of George Barnsdale & Sons said: “Whilst we have already had the test data and wider security accreditations for our range of timber windows and doors, we are pleased to have formalised our registration with the Secured by Design scheme”.
