Customer Request: I am in need of glass doors with mesh/screening behind the glass doors. I am looking for something in Black and plain/nothing fancy. I need the glass doors to be vented. I have a brick fireplace and the hearth is above the firebox. I am looking for something that is affordable. That is most important to me.
Comments: Due to the large size of your fireplace opening, there are no stock size doors that will fit, so your doors will need to be custom made. Unfortunately, custom doors are about double the price of stock doors, but we will do the best we can. The Aluminum doors are all the same price, roughly $1200 for an overlap fit and just under $1000 if we fit the door inside. We only recommend the inside fit in this application because it is about $200 less than an overlap fit just because the overall frame size falls in a lower price bracket. The inside fit will require you to fill in the gaps between the bricks and the frame with mortar. This is a lot more work, but may be worth the $200 savings if you do this yourself. If you pay someone to install the door, they will likely charge you $200 for the installation due to the mortar work, so you might as well do an outside fit. Although the inside fit is more difficult to install, it does create a good look. So, this is the best we can do for you.
Please keep in mind that we do not quote exact prices here on our project pages because these get archived over the years and prices change, so we will quote exact prices over the phone or via email at the time of purchase.
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.
Option #1: Brookfield in Rustic Black (shown as inside fit).
Option #2: Brookfield in Rustic Black (shown as overlap fit).
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.
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.
Insulation: Provides a better seal between the fireplace face and the door frame.
