Customer Request: Hi, We are interested in glass doors for our masonry fireplace. We are about to install gas logs as pictures show. We have a flush hearth. Height to fascia is 29.5 inches. Height to lintel 29 1/8 inches. Depth to lintel 1 1/4 inch. Opening width 47 5/8 inches. Opening width 2 inches back is same 47 5/8 inches. Our preference is for the Stilletto with finish Powder Coat - Rustic Black and mesh panel doors. Thank you!
Our Comments: If you choose the Stiletto, you will want to consider the cutback frame option since the Stiletto door has a box like frame that projects 1 1/2" from the face of the fireplace. The cutback frame removes the outer edge of the box and allows it to recess into the fireplace while the outer edge overlaps the opening. The concern about using the cutback frame on a brick fireplace is that we can only overlap the opening about 1/4" which is not usually enough to cover the mortar joints, so there may spots where you can see openings between the mortar joints. We also created an example of the Stiletto as an inside fit. In that case, we would make the door 1/4" narrower than the smallest dimensions and the gap would need to be filled with mortar or grout. Please refer to the images of the Stiletto profile in Fig. #1 below.
Fireplace Opening: 34 1/4" W x 30 1/2" H
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.
