Passionate About Wood
Setting The Benchmark
From the very beginning in 1888 Russell Timber has been passionate about wood. John A Russell, great great grandfather of the current Managing Director, gave his name to our family run business, which has evolved from contracting and creating joinery to the current business of designing, manufacturing, supplying and installing technically advanced, high performance windows and doors. Our comprehensive range of Timber and Alu-clad products set the benchmark for energy efficiency, sustainability, quality and durability.
Timber is a natural material with inherent strength and great beauty lending itself to multiple uses in the construction of buildings. It is easy to maintain and repair and can be readily recycled at the end of a long and useful life.
Timber is the only building material with a positive impact on the environment. Trees keep our planet healthy. They absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen to contribute positively towards the atmosphere and moderate climate change.
It is vital that we manage our forests for future generations. In managed forests, more trees are planted than are used to meet tomorrows needs for production. Managed forests avoid deforestation and maintain a sustainable supply. Timber processing is low in energy consumption and has no toxic or negative side effects.
Our doors and windows are made from close-grained quality, knot-free laminated Redwood or solid or laminated clear faced Oak from Northern Europe and the Baltics or from the best quality hardwood. Slow growing Redwood and Oak and slower growing Hardwoods are renowned for their long term trouble free performance. Laminated Redwoods, Oaks and Hardwoods are engineered to produce stable, durable, long life materials which are ideal for windows and doors.
