Customer Comments: Hi. Requesting that you provide sample "after" photos and any design advice you might have regarding the purchase and installation of a fireplace door. We refinished our fireplace with a wood surround/mantel and marble tile facing. Attached are four photos of our fireplace. We are thinking the following regarding the door selection:
The opening is 33 1/2" wide and 22 3/8" tall. There is a lip on the bottom of the opening that is 1 7/8" tall above the floor tile. The top of the opening was lowered at the suggestion of our gas company to reduce the fumes that would sometimes come back into the living room. Therefore, there are no bricks behind the tiles at the top of the opening that can be used for mounting the frame. I am assuming mounting frames would be attached to the sides. Also, can you explain the difference between "Gate Mesh" and "Mesh Curtain".
Fireplace Opening: 33 1/2" W x 22 3/8" H
Our Comments: We have provided samples of several doors that we think would look great on your beautifully remodeled fireplace. We understand the desire to cut cost using the stock doors, but there are several issues to consider:
Regarding the difference between Mesh Curtain and Gate Mesh doors: Mesh curtains are a looped wire curtain that slides back and forth while gate mesh doors more like a window screen made of wire that has its own frame behind the glass doors so you can open them separately. See illustrations at the bottom of this page.
We have supplied links to each door below their corresponding picture so you can get an idea of the prices and options.
These 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.
