Touch Bar Latch in Aluminum

A home owner from Illinois says:
I would like to order 40-046 in Aluminum color.
Will the AL rub off onto hands and clothing OR has a clear coat paint been applied to prevent oxidation and transfer?

Dave from SWISCO responded:
The hardware for the 40-046 is painted with enamel paint at the factory and it holds up quite well. I had an aluminum-colored 40-046 installed on my own back door for years and the paint was still on when I took the door down to replace it.
A home owner from Illinois says:
I want to make sure there is enough clearance from my exiting entry doorknob to use the 40-046 .
Question; On the pivot or anchored end, opposite the latch ....how far does this bracket extend from the surface of the door?

The touch bar looks like it sticks out 1-5/8" from the door.
