Exterior Finish Options
Printed images of exterior finishes will vary slightly from actual colors. Selections should be made based on actual color samples. 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.
Ultra Series TerraSpan lift & slide doors are finished on the exterior with a commercial-grade, 70% PVDF fluoropolymer
coating that meets the requirements of AAMA 2605-05 specifications – the highest level in the industry. This finish carries
up to a 30-year warranty, with many color options
(as well as custom colors) available. Mica finishes
are also available for TerraSpan lift & slide doors,
to add dimension and interest to the exterior look.
In addition, doors can be specifiied with a variety
of unique, anodized exterior finishes.
