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
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.
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.
