Project 10005 - Fireplace Door Mock-Ups

This is an example of a well built slate stone fireplace front. With most stone fireplaces we would suggest an inside fit with a mortar joint. However, in this case the stones appear to be flat enough such that an overlap fit may also be appropriate, so we have created examples of both applications. The inside fit is more difficult to install but gives seems to better flatter the stone as you can recess the door a but to reveal the stone thickness. The outside fit will hide the cut edge of the stone if you do not want to see it, plus it better preserves the size of the fireplace opening. The request was to see how the Design Specialties Carolina Door with the Window Pane option would look in a black finish. We also created a mock up of the new Blackrock door because it is so popular and we wanted to show how it would look.

Fireplace opening size: Approximately 36" W x 26" H.

Recommended frame size: We recommend overlapping the stones by 1" on the top and each side, so the overall frame dimension would be 2" wider and 1" taller than the opening once we get the exact measurements.

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.

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.
