Project 10236 - Glass Door for Fireplace With Inside Shelf
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.
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.
This page was created as part of our Free Fireplace Door Design service. Anyone who has a fireplace and is considering glass doors can take advantage of this program. All you have to do is email us some pictures of your fireplace and we will create digital mock-ups showing you how various fireplace doors will look on your fireplace. This is hands down the best way to shop for fireplace doors. Click Here to Begin Your Own Project!
