The GAI provides a template to help member companies with the creation of Operation and Maintenance manuals. 

The contractor typically requires this information to allow them to compile the correct documentation required by the client – an integral part of the handover procedure prior to certifying practical completion of a project.  

These documents are provided as guidance only, and are not intended to provide an exhaustive list. Some of the sections are intended solely as cover pages, within which member company can provide their own detail.  

These templates are provided in Word format to allow the contents to be easily amended depending on the nature of each individual project. 

Sections covered by the templates include: 

  • Overview 
  • Fabric Elements such as description of material and details of guarantees 
  • Technical Data Sheets 
  • Product Certification 
  • Maintenance 
  • Drawing and Schedule Index
  • Disclaimers 

Please note:

Members should carefully review the instructions for each individual section and how it may be used. The following disclaimer should be included: This template is issued on a standard template provided by the GAI for use in the door and hardware industries. There is no implied endorsement of the content, which is the responsibility of the issuing company. 

This is a GAI member-only resource.
