A new publication containing the latest door hardware advice for architects and specifiers and showcasing best practice internationally has been launched by the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI).
The GAI Yearbook contains architectural ironmongery and technical standards advice and has been created to recognise the importance of the professional partnership between architects and architectural ironmongers.
There is guidance for sourcing door and window hardware professionals, including a list of all Registered Architectural Ironmongers (RegAI) who can help put together a compliant and robust hardware schedule.
Angie Corkhill, director of the GAI, commented: “When it comes to architectural ironmongery, even the smallest error can impact the performance of the door, the fire integrity and flow of the building.
“It’s a complex industry and a hard subject to master, so we hope that this publication will encourage architects to use a RegAI on all future projects.”
RegAIs are fully qualified architectural ironmongery professionals who have completed their GAI Diploma and have committed to maintaining a high level of knowledge, keeping fully up-to-date with the latest legislation, industry standards and products through the GAI’s CPD programme.
Within the Yearbook, Jonathan Hall, director of architectural practice AHMM, has given an exclusive interview talking about AHMM’s projects and award wins, architectural ironmongery and the specification process.
Jonathan was also a judge for this year’s Architectural Ironmongery Specification Awards, organised by the GAI, in association with the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).
The GAI Yearbook showcases the winning projects of the Architectural Ironmongery Specification Awards from the UK and internationally, giving an overview of each project and the ironmongery specification.
It also includes a comprehensive update on ironmongery standards from GAI technical manager, Douglas Masterson.
