Design Specialties Fireplace Door Size Chart

Below are the frame specifications that our professionals use in order to determine which doors will best fit your fireplace and how to specifiy the finished size. If your fireplace has a lintel that would interfere with the subframe of the door, that must be taken into account when calculating the overlap at the top of the fireplace.

Key Definitions:

  • Type (Masonry or ZC): Be sure to use the size chart for your type of fireplace. ZC refers to prefabricated fireplaces.
  • Frame Width: This is the width of the outer frame. This width does not take into account the width of the frames holding the doors.
  • Max Overlap: This is the most the door frame can overlap any fireplace. There is no minimum, but you must take into account the width of mortar joints when determining the minimum overlap needed to cover them.
  • Recess: This is how much of the subframe recesses into the opening. Anything blocking this inside the fireplace will prevent the outer frame from fitting flush with the fireplace facing.
  • Projection: This is now much the door frame projects into the room beyond the face of the fireplace
