Project 10218 - Glass Doors for Travertine Fireplace
Customer Request: Steve, I had just communicated with you on your website about some fireplace doors I would like to get installed in a house I just acquired. I would prefer an inside fit with a iron or dark bronze finish frame with bi-fold glass doors. The dimensions are 44 1/8 inch width by 29 1/8 inch height. Thanks.
Our Comments: We have created several examples of doors that we believe will look great on your fireplace. We have shown how the doors look as both inside and outside fit. If made as an inside fit, we would make the door 1/4" less than your opening on the top and each side, so 1/2" less in width and 1/4" less in height. Notice the grout filling in the gap on the left and right sides of our examples.
Fireplace Opening: 44 1/8" W x 29 1/8" H
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.
