Sponsor a GAI technical publication!

It is that time of year when the Guild is offering the opportunity to sponsor its technical publications. 

The publications available to sponsor include: our established GAI Specifiers’ Guides, Guides to Standards, and Quarterly Technical Reviews. All of these are set to have new editions published over the coming year.

It will also include our latest range of publications designed to support the end users of architectural ironmongery entitled GAI End-users Guides, as well as three new GAI Sustainability Briefings.

The pricing structure is as below:

GAI Specifiers Guides, Guides to Standards and Sustainability Briefings.  

Each individual guide costs £425 to sponsor for the year, with the following four packages available to provide even greater value.   

Bronze = Sponsor 2 guides for £800 (£400 per guide)
Silver = Sponsor 3 guides for £990 (£330 per guide)
Gold = Sponsor 5 guides for £1,400 (£280 per guide)
Platinum = Sponsor 10 guides for £2,250 (£225 per guide)

Sponsorship of the GAI Quarterly Technical Review includes all four editions at a cost of £800 (ex. VAT).

GAI End User Guides sponsorship is available at the cost of £600 (ex VAT) per guide. These end-user guides will address the needs of clients, users, developers, facilities managers, and all who are involved with the building following its handover. They will be freely available and widely promoted. 

These publications are provided to help end-users in key sectors get more from their architectural ironmongery. As well as covering maintenance recommendations and care of finishes for relevant materials, they include useful checklists to help the user with critical products such as fire doors, escape doors and automatic doors.
