We at G Johns & Sons Ltd are full members of the Guild of Architectural Ironmongers and offer a complete, ironmongery scheduling and estimating service.
All of our staff have experience in the building and construction industry or are fully qualified registered architectural ironmongers. This means we keep up with the latest fire regulations and building standards, making us qualified to complete full ironmongery schedules for residential, commercial and public buildings, therefore we are extremely well qualified to support and advise our customers.
We boast a wealth of experience in the business, supplying both the public and trade with the highest quality of fittings, backed by first class expertise and knowledge. We believe our levels of customer care are second to none. Equally, our sympathetic approach to customers taking on new challenges helps us to guide them right through starting with scheduling from architects drawings and quotations to the selection process and through to installation. As well as the many standards we have come to know, the only limitation is your own imagination. Quantity is no issue, whether it be a single piece or thousands, we can provide exactly what you need.
We work closely with architects, clients and contractors to provide high quality door schedules. Our GAI qualified schedulers and quoting team ensure that our schedules are clear and professionally laid out and will conform to the latest building and fire regulations.
What is ironmongery scheduling?
Scheduling is the process of correctly listing all the items of hardware required for each door (and window) in a building project.
Why do I need a schedule?
Having an ironmongery schedule can bring the following benefits to the client:
- Ensures the requirements of security, fire safety and functionality are met
- Ensures the requirements of legislation and regulation are met
- Contributes to the buildings overall design
- Enhances the quality of environment for the end users
- Potentially reduces the whole life maintenance costs for the building through correct specification
How much does it cost?
If you contact us to quote for a project, we can produce an ironmongery schedule for you free of charge.
What does our service include?
Our service includes meeting with architects, designers and clients in our north London office and showroom, for projects based in the London area we also have the facility to meet on site.
With a lot of our business now conducted over the phone and via email, we are also more than happy to be sent drawings and plans in the post or electronically.
Once you've made contact with us we normally start by talking through the requirements of the project such as designs, finishes, quality and budgets, we then go through the floor plans door by door to produce a an ironmongery schedule and quote.
We also have the facility to draw up and design sophisticated master key suites, starting from a few cylinders under the same key all the way up to grand master key suites with separate sub suites for different floors, areas or even buildings.
Many of our clients have worked closely with us on numerous projects over the last 17 years and we feel that this is down to the close working relationships we try to build during a project backed up with our high levels of customer service.
