Project #10595 - Glass Doors for Fireplace

Customer Comments: Hello, My wife and I are doing some updating in our den and would like some new doors for our fireplace. We are thinking black with glass bifold doors. I am afraid that a larger door would break if it swung open and hit the fieldstone next to the opening.. Perhaps there is a different option that isn't glass? The dimensions of the opening are 40" wide and 29.25" tall. The fieldstones on the side do get a bit narrower - down to 39.25" if that matters. Please find the attached pictures and let me know if you need any others. Please find my contact information below. Looking forward to working with you!

Our Comments: Some people will actually just install typical door stoppers as shown in option #1. We can also add a chain inside the doors that will prevent them from opening beyond a certain point. Or, you can use mesh doors instead of glass. We have shown all of these options below.

Fireplace Opening: 40" W x 29 1/4"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.

Black Mesh Curtains - These slide back and forth on a rod behind the glass
Gate Mesh Doors - These are separate doors behind the glass that have a flat wire mesh and a black frame.
Insulation: Provides a better seal between the fireplace face and the door frame.
