The Stiletto fireplace door is custom made to fit your fireplace. This door features a very narrow minimal frame that projects 1 5/8" from the face of the fireplace for overlap fits. This makes the Stiletto great for applications where an inside fit is best because the thin frame has less impact on shrinking the viewing area. Plus, the depth of the frame makes acts like a mortar flange making it easier to fill gaps with mortar.
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.
- Fits Masonry and Zero Clearance Fireplaces.
- Custom made to fit almost any size rectangular fireplace 12"-96" Wide x 12"-60" Tall.
- Can be burned with doors open or closed.
- 1/4" thick fully tempered safety glass w/Lifetime Warranty for breakage.
- Heat resistant aluminum frame with precision mitered corners.
- Choose from 26 heat resistant powder coat or anodized finishes.
- Comes with Easy-To-Install hardware.
- Optional mesh curtains or wire mesh backup doors.
- Can be made with mesh doors instead of glass.
- Many other custom options.
After you email us pictures of your fireplace along with your dimensions, our experts will use the specifications below to determine if this door is appropriate for your fireplace. The facing material on the fireplace, the location of the lintel and the recessed depth of the frame is critical knowledge in making this determination.

Standard -vs- Cutback
The Stiletto masonry doors are availble in the standard and cutback versions. The cutback option is $150 to $200 more than the standard frame. When mounting the standard frame on the outside of the fireplace (overlap fit) it projects out 1 5/8". The cutback options removes most of that projection and only projects 5/16". The cutback frame only as about 1/4" tolearance, so it is only used in rare cases where the fireplace is perfectly square.
The above image shows the difference in profile between the Stiletto and Stiletto Cutback. The frame thickness of the cutback is 5/8", but looks less in the above computer generated example.
Talk To A Fireplace Door Expert
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.
Aluminum Anodized Finishes
(not available on all aluminum doors, please call for availability)
Anodized Aluminum finishes are impervious to the heat of a fireplace and do not rust or require an enamel coating. This makes it perfect for highly polished or satin finishes because they will not tarnish or easily become discolored from heat. When a plated steel finish gets scratched through the enamel coating, it will eventually begin to rust and spread beneath the enamel over time. This will not happen with anodized aluminum. Although the silvery color of the aluminum may show in a scratch, it will not rust or get worse.
*Candlelight brass is similar to a brushed satin brass finish but is more orange in color

How To Calculate Base Price
The Base Price is determined by the overall United Inches of your door frame. United Inches are simply the sum of the width and height of the finished door, not of the fireplace opening. A typical door will be made to overlap the fireplace opening 1" on the top and sides, which adds 3 united inches to the size of your fireplace opening. The overall price of your door will be determined by the Base Price, the finish category and any other custom options you choose. Here's an example of fireplace measuring 36"w x 24"h:
36 + 24 + 3 (overlap) = 63 United Inches.
Referencing the chart below you see that 63 UI falls into the 60 -70 UI price column, giving this door a base price of $905.00 in a powder coat finish. The "Cutback" option for the Stiletto doors is an additional $150-$250 depending on size.
