Three day turnaround on painted items

Custom Paint Service Added to 3-Day-Out Aluminum Extrusions & Sheet Program
by Josh Berris, SAF Paint Operations Manager

3DAYOUT-tnSAF has experienced great interest and strong demand since the introduction of our 3-Day-Out Paint Program in August, 2009. 3-Day-Out offers to ship custom painted extrusions and sheets within 3 days of order placement. With coordinated efforts throughout SAF, our Winston paint shop has demonstrated we can fill custom paint orders faster than anyone in the industry.

A reminder on the qualifiers of the program:

  • SAF must have the catalog-listed aluminum sheet or extrusions in stock.
  • Available paint codes are those stocked by SAF or available as SAF EZ mix colors*.
  • Orders must be $5000.00 or less, but larger jobs may be accepted under these terms if requested.

To view and order from the SAF stock aluminum sheet and extrusion inventory on-line, visit and log into http://www.saf.com/quote_mgr.php.

Please note: SAF has no minimum, although we do charge for freight on orders under 100 lbs. We will cut to length and ship ground on any size order.

* EZ mix colors refer to colors mixable by SAF, or matching paint panel samples submitted earlier. If your paint color is not on file, panels can be submitted for custom match. EZ mix colors are 2-coat Fluoropolymer AAMA 2605 compliant coating which is non-exotic, non XL, non-Metallic, non-mica, and non-barrier.
