Custom Aluminum Fireplace Doors

Savannah Aluminum Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black

Aluminum does not rust or tarnish and is rather impervious to heat, so it makes an excellent material for fireplace door frames. The frames are pieced together with mitered corners from aluminum extrusions and can be made to fit virtually any size fireplace that has a rectangular opening. They are available in a variety of attractive heat resistance finishes to work with your decor.

Each of these doors is custom made to fit almost any square or rectangular fireplace. Our experts will help you choose which doors are best for your fireplace. Be sure to use our FREE Fireplace Door Design Service!

Savannah Aluminum Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black

Burn Open or Closed? Unlike other brands, you can burn a wood fire with Design Specialties doors open or closed. If you close the doors, be sure you have a reasonable fire and the grate is at least 8" from the glass. The glass is 1/4" thick tempered safety glass with a Limited Lifetime Warranty for breakage. When burning gas logs or alternative gas fires, the doors should always remain open due to gas safety standards.

"NEW" Profile Aluminum Fireplace Doors from Hearth Creations

Hearth Creations Profile door frames are also made from aluminum extrusions with 1/4" tempered glass. The manufacturer does not recommend burning with the doors closed and will not cover glass breakage under warranty. You can close the doors as the fire is dying out to help extinguish the fire and prevent heat loss during the night. Please call for details about Hearth Creations options.

Burn Open or Closed? Hearth Creations glass doors must be open when your fire is burning. You can close them temporarily to help start the fire (which works great) or when the fire is dying out. They use 1/4" tempered safety glass but do not cover glass breakage or frame discoloration caused by excessive heat. When burning gas logs or alternative gas fires, the doors should always remain open due to gas safety standards.
