Project #10414 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: I want to replace front doors and surround and get rid of gold and go with just basic black, the width of opening inside fireplace is 27" a height is 32 3/4".
Our Comments: Here are some examples in all different price ranges including hand forged iron, laser cut steel and aluminum. We have created examples of 2 ways to treat your fireplace. The most finished look would require the removal of the sheet metal form, in which case we would make the doors fit inside the rock opening. You would then need to fill the gaps with mortar. The alternative is to choose a door with a frame wide enough to overlap the form and leave it in place. This will provide a less finished look, but will be an easier install. However, it will limit your selection to doors with a wider frame.
Fireplace Opening: 32 3/4" W x 27" 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.
