Project #10363 - Glass Door for Ledger Stone Fireplace
Customer Comments: Thanks for the help. The opening is 37” wide and 28 1/2” tall. The lip at the bottom is 3” tall and sits back 1/2” from the sides. Would like to see the Brookfield in Textured Black with Mesh Doors.
Our Comments: There are two ways to make this door. Overlap the opening on the sides and top and make a "hearth flange" for the door to sit on that fills the space at the bottom. Or, make the door fit inside the opening leaving a 1/4" gap on the top and sides and then fill the gap with mortar after the door is installed. The first option is much easier to install. We have provided examples of how both options might look. We also included an example of how the hearth flange might be made.
Fireplace Opening Size: 37" W x 28 1/2" H

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.
