Customer Request: We are interested in the brookfield fireplace (DS-Custom-Brookfield) door with grey glass and the same coating (what is it) that is in your display picture on your website. We are not interested in any other special features to the doors. We want fireplace doors for two reasons (1) appearance and (2) to keep out chimney drafts.
Opening Size: 36 3/16" W x 28 1/8" H
Recommended Make To Size: 35 11/16" W x 27 7/8" H (based on above measurements)
Our Comments: Due to the irregularity in the surface of the stone, we recommend an inside fit with mortar on the top and sides. We will make the door 1/4" narrower on each side (1/2" less in overall width) and 1/4" shorter. This will leave about a 1/4" gap that needs to be filled with mortar. We would need to confirm that the above measurements are the smallest width and height between the stones. We can also make the door so that it is mortared on all 4 sides in which case we would make it 1/4" shorter.
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 #3: Brookfield in Natural Iron with Gray Glass outside fit with 1" overlap on all 4 sides. This is not ideal as gaps between the frame and stone will be evident, however it is much easier to install. Add 2" to the opening width and height to get finished frame size.
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.
