Project 10055 - Fireplace Door Mock-Ups
Zero Clearance Fireplace with Vents
Opening Size: Unknown
Comments: Zero Clearance fireplaces like this that have louvers on the top and bottom can be treated in 3 ways:
- Fit a door inside the opening
- Overlap just the opening
- Cover the entire black metal fireplace including the vents
Because the original louvers from the fireplace have been removed, we have only provided examples of doors that cover the openings where the louvers belong. We will create examples of the other options if necessary. Also, it appears that the fireplace damper control may actually be in the upper louver area. If this is the case, we can make a slot in the louver panel to accommodate the lever. We will need to confirm if this is the case.
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!
