The Essex is constructed from 3/16" thick solid steel and has the look and feel of quality. The simple minimalist design is made to overlap just 1/2", which is perfect for tile or marble. It is also the ultimate solution as an inside fit on brick or stone where a frame that does not shrink the fireplace opening is most desired while still providing .

The frame is fabricated from aluminum extrusions that are either anodized or powder coated. The extrusions are mitered in the corners and pieced together much like a picture frame.

Aluminum is an excellent material for fireplace doors because it does not rust or tarnish and is quite impervious to heat. It is a much sturdier material than sheet metal and less expensive than solid brass or solid steel.

The glass is 1/4" thick fully tempered safety glass with a Lifetime Warranty for breakage, and you CAN burn the fire with the doors closed if you wish.

Talk To A Fireplace Door Expert
Call: 1-800-201-1193

Because every fireplace door is custom made, there are many options and configurations to choose from. When you call and talk to one of our fireplace door experts, they will walk you through each of these options so you know exactly what they are and how they will affect the look and overall cost of your door.

Powder Coat Finishes

Powder coat finishes are applied electrostatically and then cured buy heat. This type of finishing process is superior to high temperature paint because it forms a hard coating over the metal that is highly impervious to heat and will not rust. The process is precisely formulated and produces very consistent results with fewer imperfections. It is also the least expensive finishing process, although it has limitations and cannot replicate the more expensive artistic finishes that are hand crafted.

Artisan Premier Finishes

Artisan Premier finishes are hand applied by skilled craftsman and then coated with a heat resistant baked on enamel for durability. These are hand applied textures and finishes, so each product will differ slightly and have a character of it's own. If you are looking for a more consistent finish we recommend you stick with the Powder coat finishes.

Mesh Curtains & Mesh Doors

If you are burning real wood or gas logs, you should have some sort of mesh protection behind the glass for when you burn the fire with the doors open.
