Printed images of exterior finishes may vary slightly from actual colors. Selections should be made based on actual color samples available from your Kolbe dealer.
There is a “color range” with anodized colors. That is, there is an acceptable “light” to “dark” color range that can be experienced on any job. According to AAMA 611-98 specifications,
Section 8.3, the range may be up to 5 Delta E’s. We can provide from our anodized vendor color samples of this color range if requested. The color range is due to numerous variables which
include (but are not limited to) the shape of the parts, alloy variations and time in the anodizing process. This could mean that a sash part may appear slightly different in color than a frame part.
This is/will be acceptable. Even the samples that may be provided may vary from the final product due to the variables.
You must be aware of this as this will be considered acceptable.
