Project #10656 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: I’d like to see some of your mock ups. I like daily simple or with arches, but I’m willing to stray out of my comfort zone. I’d like bifold doors and a screen behind. My gut feeling is not black but something subtle to make it stand out a little. Top to bottom including vents 33 1/2- height 41 13/16 width (At top and bottom) but at the center it looks like 42 inches.
Our Comments: There are basically 4 ways to treat a zero clearance fireplace with vents. Each of them are represented below. Many modifications can be made to these designs to fit your taste, but we have chosen concepts that we feel work with your decor.
Fireplace Opening: 41 13/16" W x 33 1/2" H (overall dimensions).
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.
Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes | Hearth Creations Finishes
Low End Aluminum Doors
Aluminum is an excellent material for fireplace doors because it does not rust and can handle high temperatures when treated with powder coated finishes. It is also the most affordable.
Medium Range Steel Doors
Steel doors are more substantial than the less expensive aluminum doors. They are heavy duty and rugged and are more customizable because the frames are laser cut.
Medium Range Steel Doors with Louvers
High End Hand Crafted Wrought Iron & Solid Brass Doors
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans and provide a look unlike any other fireplace doors. They are quite expensive and are for those who appreciate and invest in fine craftsmanship.
Louver Options for Option #3
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.
