Project 10056 - Fireplace Door Mock-Ups
Concrete Fireplace Over Stone
Concrete Opening Size: 38 9/16" W x 28 5/16" H
Stone Opening: 30 3/4" W x 23 1/2" H Stone Recessed: 2 1/2"
Customer Request: Resurfaced a wood burning fireplace. We would like to cover the rock so that it is not visible. We would like the doors to fit inside the gray concrete. Satin Nickel Finish or Brite Black finish. We do like to burn wood in the fireplace with the doors open (i.e. a screen). Doors Requested: Bungalow, Savannah, Carolina Window Pane.
Comments: You can hide the stone by either using a wider frame or by using black glass. None of the doors come with a frame wide enough to completely hide the stone, but custom made steel doors like the Legend can be made with any width frame we want. So instead of creating an example of the Carolina Window Pane door, we used the Legend Window Pane, which is basically the same, but can be made with a custom width frame. We also showed how the Bungalow door (a less expensive option) looks with clear glass compared to black glass. The Odyssey is the ultimate door for black glass if you want a very contemporary look because it has hidden hinges and no frame around the glass. You will not be able to see the stone through the black glass, but when the doors are open, you can see it unless you choose the wider steel frame. All of the doors are pictured with flat wire gate mesh backup doors so you can burn the fire with the doors open or closed.
Further Comment: We are limited in our ability to reproduce the brite black and satin nickel finish. The reason I chose slate grey for the Legend Window Pane doors is because I could not produce a good enough replication of satin nickel on that example. So you will need to refer to the finish samples for your final finish choice.
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.
