Our Comments: Here is how we would treat a fireplace that has a shelf inside. This would need to be done with a steel frame so we can have it laser cut to fit the opening. We would make a fixed end panel (glass that does not open) on the side with the shelf, or we can make a door that opens. We have created examples of both ideas. There may need to be a mortar joint added on the left side of the main door where it butts against the shelf. Also, the bracket that is attached to the bricks on the right side of the opening will need to be removed in order for the door to overlap the opening. Otherwise, we will have to custom make the door to fit inside, which we do not recommend in this application.
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.
