Project 10003 - Fireplace Door Mock-Ups

This is a used brick fireplace with a flush hearth and typical rectangular opening. This is a simple straightforward application with nothing unusual, so measuring and installing is a breeze. Almost any custom fireplace door will work for this fireplace, but we suggest those that can overlap the opening about 1" on the top and each side in order to cover the irregularities of the bricks and mortar joints as well as allow for the thickness of the lintel.

Fireplace opening size: 46 3/4" W x 29 1/2" H

Recommended frame size (about 1" overlap top and sides): 49" W x 30 1/2" H

Note: These mock-ups are digitally created and meant to be used as a visualization tool only. The door frames are not exactly to scale and the finishes we attempt to replicate may not be accurate and will look different on every device.

Actual After Pictures

As promised here are photos of the custom made fireplace doors. This fireplace was a complete rebuild. Handcrafted in 1965 it has 2 flues. Both cracked. We found a highly skilled tradesmen and then Hansen Wholesale as we needed unusually large doors. Please note we are still waiting on the correct mesh but until it arrives we retro fitted what we received. Too long but we at least can finally use the fireplace. I love how the flames reflect off the doors.

After #1: This is the actual Buckingham door they chose after it was installed.
After #2: This is the actual Buckingham door in use. Subsequent to this the mesh curtains will be replaced so they do not drag and hang correctly.
Cottage: This is the beautiful cottage where the project was done.

Mesh Options

These options are behind the glass so you can burn the fire with the doors open and still have spark protection. Great for real wood or gas logs since most gas long manufacturers insist that you have a screen in front of the logs when they are burning. Mesh panel doors are the most popular and are best for when there are toddlers present because they will not open backwards whereas the mesh screens are easily pushed in.

Black Mesh Curtains - These slide back and forth on a rod behind the glass
Gate Mesh Doors - These are separate doors behind the glass that have a flat wire mesh and a black frame.
