Project 10199 - Glass Doors for Arched Brick Fireplace
Customer Request: Terry, first, the problem I'm trying to solve: When the fireplace is not in use, a draft comes down the chimney and causes the room to smell like smoke/ashes. This happens even when the damper is closed. I'd like to enclose the fire place as best as possible to reduce the airflow and contain the smell. Attached are the pictures of the fireplace. Here are the measurements:
Width along bottom: 42 1/8"
With along top, below arch: 42 1/8"
Height to top of arch: 30 7/8"
Width between interior bottom points of arch: 40 3/8"
Arch protrusion from face of wall: varies between 1/2" and 3/4"
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.
