Its qualification, education and CPD programmes are widely respected in the UK and overseas, including GCC and Hong Kong. The technical information service is the only specialist service of its kind for the industry, providing GAI members with comprehensive advice on issues relating to legislation, regulations and standards governing the use of architectural ironmongery and related hardware.

ASDMA

ASDMA was formed in 1990 with membership made up of companies who manufacture specialist bespoke timber doors. Many of these had been founder members of the TRADA QA Scheme for fire doors.

Since the association was founded, the membership has grown to include suppliers of hardware, seals, glazing and also leading UKAS-accredited test houses. The diversity of membership means the association is uniquely equipped to pull together information on all factors relating to the bespoke timber door industry.
