7 Appearance and finish
7.1 A feature of some composite doorsets is the presence of a simulated woodgrain textured surface. This makes measurement of colour and gloss by absolute methods impossible. Where control of this feature is part of the specification, it can be achieved only by using agreed variation samples and discussion with the customer. The colour and/or appearance of an assembled door, whether supplied fully finished or for finishing on site, shall be uniform and consistent when viewed by normal or corrected vision at a range of1 m, . facing 45° north-sky light in natural light, viewing perpendicular to the surface in accordance with BS EN ISO 105-A01:2010, Clause 14. NOTE Composite doorsets can be supplied with a variety offinishes, including painted finishes and finishes integral to the facing material. Doorsets can be supplied fully finished, unfinished for site painting, or a combination as agreed between the contracting parties.
7.2 Doorsets supplied fully finished
For fibre-reinforced thermoset (FRT) surfaces, there shall be no break-out of the fibre more than 6 mm away from a fabricated area or cut edge. NOTE 1 The most common form of FRT is glass reinforced plastic (GRP).
