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 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.

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.
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!
