Project #10358 - Glass Door for Rock Fireplace
Customer Comments: I saw on your web page the ability to see a mock-up I’ve included the pictures per the instructions but let me know if you need more or different I was particularly interested in the Hudson roller barn door but f you think there are others with a barn type theme might also be of interest, there’s an 18 stall barn on the property
Our Comments: The roller door is designed as an overlap fitting door. Normally on a rough stone fireplace like this we would recommend an inside fit with mortar to fill the gaps. If we do an overlapping fit, we will need to make the frame wide enough so that you don't see obvious gaps between the stones when standing to the side of the door. So we have illustrated this by using a 5" wide frame around the door. The other illustrations show a typical inside fit with mortar.
Fireplace Opening Size: 30 1/2" W x 24" 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.
