Project 10050 - Fireplace Door Mock-Ups

Contemporary Marble Prefab Fireplace

Opening Size: 38 1/4 wide x 25 3/8 high

Our Comments: This is a zero clearance fireplace with a beautiful marble slap surround that comes right up to the fireplace opening. Any glass doors that are made for this fireplace must fit inside the marble opening and will be made with a 1/4" air space on all 4 sides between the marble and the door frame. We have suggested 3 doors that will look great on this fireplace. Although there are many finishes to choose from, we recommend brite black to tie in with the hearth. There are several bronze tones we could have chosen, but the fear is that since the marble has it's own very specific bronze tone, any bronze finish that comes close will not match and look odd. It would be possible to use a darker bronze tone to compliment with the marble as an alternative, but it would not tie in with the hearth.

Additional Comments: We will need closeup pictures of the fireplace opening to determine where the black metal facing is in relation to the marble and to see how much space there is to accommodate the frame depth for each of the doors (they each have different requirements). We will also want to make sure the tracks for the existing doors can be removed.

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.

Other Pictures

This person sent several pictures so that we could identify the type of fireplace. They originally thought it was a masonry fireplace, but upon close inspection, we can easily identify that it is an old prefab fireplace. The rectangular damper was common on Majest and Superior fireplaces in the 1970s-1980s.

The upper door channel can be removed by loosening the phillips screw on each side leaving. The door will overlap the remaining exposed metal bar.
Fireplace Detail
Rectangular Damper - Open the damper and shine a light up and you will see the chimney is not brick, but has a round metal flue.
Fireplace Detail
The refractory panels are not real brick and are held in place by metal clips at the top. This is how most prefab fireplaces are constructed.

Good shot of the prefab fireplace interior. The grate is most likely not the original one that came with the fireplace.

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.
