Project #10656 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
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.
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.
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
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
Legend ZC Deluxe
Option #3: Legend ZC Deluxe Fireplace Glass Door
with Tuscan Louvers in Forged Iron. This door is made to cover the entire black metal face of the fireplace. There are several louver patterns, but this one is the most elegant without being overstated.
Legend ZC Deluxe
Option #3B: Legend ZC Deluxe Fireplace Glass Door
with Vintage Louvers in Burnished Bronze. This door is made to cover the entire black metal face of the fireplace. There are several louver patterns, but this one is the most elegant without being overstated.
Option #3C: Madrid Fireplace Screen Door
in Rustic Copper. This door has flat wire mesh instead of glass, which allows us to mount it to the brick.
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.
Option #4: Hand Crafted Steel Door with Flat Wire Mesh in Front of Gray Glass
. Shown with Rivets and Pitted Detail in an Oil Rubbed Steel Finish. This door is specially designed to overlap the bricks and completely hide your prefabricated fireplace. Having mesh in front of the glass combined with tinted glass blocks your view of the inside when the doors are closed and maintains a pleasing aesthetic. The fire must be burned with the doors open with this type of door.

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.
