    This specification covers the dimensional and mechanical requirements as well as the construction of steel, aluminum, and glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) non-tight, personnel doors and dutch doors for marine use. The door assembly shall be manufactured free of sharp and rugged edges, and the components shall be pretreated and primed as follows: steel doors and components shall be coated with inorganic zinc-rich primer before assembly, while aluminum doors and components shall be coated with wash primer followed by lead-free, chromate-free, anticorrosion prime coating. On the other hand, GRP doors and components shall be painted a "haze gray" color after molding. Not covered by this specification are joiner, joiner dutch doors, and expanded metal doors.
