Project #10369 - Glass Door for Brick FireplaceHello, thanks for your help! I am interested in the Carolina window pane with rustic black powder coat
Our Comments: If you want the door to cover the raised brick inside the fireplace, you will need to use the Legend series. It will look just like the Carolina, but the Legend door is more flexible in the customization and allows us to have a slotted damper control with a frame that goes down to the floor. I have created examples of both options so you can see the difference. The Legend will be more expensive, but the finished look will be worth the difference. We have included instructions for measuring at the bottom of this project.
Fireplace Opening Size: 42 1/4" x 29 1/8"
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.

What To Measure
If you choose to use the Legend door, we will need to know the height measurement to the hearth inside the fireplace to the top bricks (C) as well as the hearth on the floor to the top bricks (B) in order to determine how to make the frame at the bottom. If you choose to go with the Carolina door, the front edge of the hearth inside the fireplace will remain exposed and the height measurement needs to be to the hearth inside the fireplace to the top bricks (C).
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.
