The Guild is established on three central pillars of; Education, Technical & Community

Welcome to the gai

The Guild has served the interests of its members since 1961. It is the United Kingdom's only trade body solely dedicated to promoting the interests of the whole architectural ironmongery industry, Architectural Ironmongers themselves, and the manufacturers and wholesalers of Architectural Ironmongery products.

It also reaches out to overseas clients through the accomplished, and sought after, education programme, and activities of the Institute of Architectural Ironmongers (IAI). Members are provided with a highly rated education programme, technical advice and support, publications and networking opportunities.


"The benefits as a member are huge, the education programme, technical support and events are all highly professional".
