Our Comments: We are going to recommend doors with fixed end panels. Otherwise, when you open the doors they will hit the ledge at the sides of the opening and damage the frame or break the glass unless you are very careful. We would make the frame fit inside the opening and you would need to fill the gaps with mortar. The 2 steel doors are better designed to be mortared in because they can have a mortar flange welded to the back. These doors should be made from either stainless steel or aluminum with stainless steel hardware in order to handle the elements. Option #4 shows a door without fixed end panels, but of these doors can be made with or without them.
Fireplace Opening: Approximately 48" W x 21" H

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.
