What does the green handle on the QO breaker indicate? What does the gray handle indicate?

Issue:
What do green or gray handles indicate on QO breakers?

Product Line:
Miniature Circuit Breakers

Environment:
QO Circuit Breakers

Resolution:
The green handle indicated that the breaker has a 10 kA at 120/240 V AIC rating at a time when the standard black handle was rated for 5 kA.
The gray handle indicated that the breaker has a 65 kA AIC rating.
Now all handles are black, regardless of AIC rating.
