Project #10330 - Glass Door for Heat Circulating Prefab Fireplace
Customer Comments: I was interested in seeing how my fireplace (which I am in process of redoing) would look with new doors (IE ZC Legend Deluxe and ZC Brookfield Deluxe).. and what the cost would be.
Our Comments: This is just a preliminary concept for a door that will cover the entire fireplace face including the upper and lower grills. It appears that there is a damper lever in the upper right and an on/off switch for a blower at the bottom right. The frame of the door will need to be made to allow access to these, which cannot be done with the Brookfield door. So we have created an example of the Legend ZC Deluxe. We will need more detailed pictures showing the damper lever and the fan switch to determine if this door is feasible. We chose to show each example with black glass because it was the only way to cover up the brass doors in the photo. Also, although we can have this door made in satin nickel, it is not recommended for a door with a frame this large due to potential inconsistencies in the finish, so we have not attempted to create a mockup of that finish.
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.
