Project 10043 - Fireplace Door Mock-Ups
Request: Customer is requesting to see the Apex and Slim Moderne Doors in Silver/Nickel with grey glass.
The opening is not perfectly square, height is 28 1/8" on both sides, top is 34 1/8" bottom is 34 3/8". Lentil at top is set back 5 1/4". The exposed marble surround is approx 7" wide.
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.
Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes | Hearth Creations Finishes
Here are some closeups of the Silhouette and Shadow cutback door frames. The Silhouette is a simple rounded bullnose and the Shadow is more like a picture frame. Both are quite flush with the fireplace opening and have very little overlap. The Shadow is slightly narrower than the Silhouette and has a maximum overlap of 5/8" whereas the Silhouette has a maximum overlap of 7/8". We never make a door to the maximum overlap because it leaves zero tolerance for error, particularly with a fireplace that is uneven like yours. So with either door, we would use a 1/2" overlap on all 4 sides.
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.
