This is a factory built prefabricated zero clearance fireplace with a stone facing and our customer has requested to see how the Brookfield ZC doors will look (see second set of options). We have determined that the Brookfield ZC will not work for this fireplace because the stone at the top overhangs the firebox opening (see image at bottom of page). So we have created examples of the Stiletto ZC door, which will be more appropriate and safe. The Stiletto ZC is an inside fit door that is made with a 1/4" gap all around the frame so that air is allowed to flow into the outer walls of the fireplace to meet code. No mortar is used in this application, making the installation easier.
The stone measures 41 3/4” wide by 21 1/8” high. The Black opening measures 42 1/8” wide by 21 1/5” high.
Recommended make to size:42 5/8" W x 20 5/8"H
Note: If the black metal at the bottom is higher than the hearth, we will need to make the height that distance less.
After further review, it was brought to our attention that the stones across the top of the opening are lower than the actual metal opening of the fireplace. When this is the case, we cannot install a door like this because it can cause issues with heat build-up behind the stone at the top. So these examples will not work on this particular application, but for others who have a similar fireplace where the stone work does not extend beyond the face of the fireplace opening, these options may be viable.
The stone measures 41 3/4” wide by 21 1/8” high. The Black opening measures 42 1/8” wide by 21 1/5” high. The stone at the top is lower than the black. The fact that fireplace fascia comes down below the actual metal firebox opening may prohibit us from being able to make any doors for this fireplace. This has to do with the ability to block the heat from transferring vertically between the fascia material and the front face of the fireplace.
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.
