The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI)

The Guild of Architectural Ironmongers (GAI) is the only trade body in the UK that represents the interests of the whole architectural ironmongery industry - architectural ironmongers, wholesalers and manufacturers.

Its reputation is built on three key areas: education, technical support and its community activities. Its qualifications, education and CPD programmes are widely respected in the UK and overseas, including the GCC and Hong Kong.

Its technical information service is the only specialist service of its kind, providing members with comprehensive advice on issues relating to the legislation, regulations and standards governing the use of architectural ironmongery and related hardware. Its awards recognise and reward personal and business excellence.

There is a range of company and individual membership options for those working in and around the architectural ironmongery industry depending on their role, their qualifications and their experience. The GAI is run by the industry for the industry.
