Project 10021 - Fireplace Door Mock-Ups
This is a great example of a brick fireplace with a full arch. When making doors to fit a fireplace like this, we need to add fixed end panels to each side in order to allow enough space on the frame for the hinges to be spaced apart vertically as shown in the examples below.
Note: We are not always able to create before and after mock ups for arched fireplaces, and when we do, they can be a little distorted, so please forgive the slight irregularity in the shape of the arch. When your real doors are actually custom made the arch will be smooth.
Note: These mock-ups are not to scale and are meant to help you choose the model of your screen or door, not the finish. Although we may create a general representation of black, iron, bronze, gold and silver tones, you must choose your finish from our samples using the links below. Ask your project manager which samples apply to the items in your project.

Mesh & Insulation Options
The Mesh 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. Insulation goes between the back of the frame and the fireplace facing, providing a better seal.
This page was created as part of our Free Fireplace Door Design service. Anyone who has a fireplace and is considering glass doors can take advantage of this program. All you have to do is email us some pictures of your fireplace and we will create digital mock-ups showing you how various fireplace doors will look on your fireplace. This is hands down the best way to shop for fireplace doors. Click Here to Begin Your Own Project!
