Special-Lite offers 20 Standard Paint Colors which coordinate with our Sandstone Texture and Pebble Grain through-color FRP face sheets and our anodized finish options.   

You can also choose from 10 Wood Grain Stain Match Paint Colors, commonly used for vision lite kits, door edges, frames, and other components on stained wood grain FRP doors.  

To easily coordinate with Special-Lite colors across your project, we offer Coordinating Paint Codes for our standard colors to coordinate with existing colors from popular paint manufacturer brands.

Custom Color for Painted Finishes   

Whether you want to match an existing finish or have a specific color in mind, we offer custom color-painted finishes and color matching. Custom color and color matching are available at an additional cost and lead time. There are two options based on the type of color match you need: industry standard or custom match.   

Industry Standard Paint Color Selection   

All we need from you is the paint manufacturer’s name, paint name, and number. Color samples are not required. We accept Industry standard paint colors from:  

Painted samples from Special-Lite of industry standard colors are an option for an additional charge.  

Custom Color Match 

Need to match a specific color that doesn’t fit the options above? We can do that, too. Just send us a physical sample of at least 4 square inches, weighing less than 5 lbs., and on a comparable substrate (no organic materials, please).   

Custom color matching requires a physical signature for approval on painted color match samples provided by Special-Lite. Signed samples must be received by mail here at Special-Lite before production.   

Touch-Up Paint is Available   

Matching touch-up paint is included with every painted order, whether you select a standard or custom paint color on aluminum or fiberglass/FRP.   

Contact our Customer Service department at 800-821-6531 or reach out us for additional touch-up paint needs.
