* Aluminum finishes are subject to considerable color range, "PERFECT COLOR MATCH IS IMPRACTICAL IN PRODUCTION" states ALCOA in its "Aluminum in Architecture" manual. APCO will make every effort to minimize this problem, but will necessarily consider variations within the standard of a quality product.

** Consult factory for availability.

NOTE: Anodized and duranodic components may be substituted with a simulated metallic polyurethane when deemed appropriate by the factory.
When selecting any of APCO’s standard or non-standard colors, if your selection is critical, we suggest that you request actual material samples.
