Project #10695 - Glass Doors for See Through Fireplace
See other side of fireplace at Project #10596
Customer Comments: Fireplace is currently unused so pictures show it is not the focal point. We are hoping to get it enclosed to be able to use it and arrange the rooms around it. Damper currently has insulation blocking drafts so picture does not show it open. As you can see it is a double sided fireplace. We are looking to have closed door operation to make it both functional and beautiful. We don’t like gold or brass coloring. We would like something more natural/homey looking for the living room side and more sterile on the kitchen side (stainless and black maybe). Thank you for your time
Our Comments: We have chosen 4 doors that represent the main price ranges and materials. You can choose to use the same door on both sides in different finishes, or different doors on both sides. This should help get you started.
Fireplace Opening: 33 1/2" W x 29" 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.
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.
High End Hand Crafted Wrought Iron/Steel Doors
Hand crafted doors take on a more rugged natural look for those who appreciate craftsmanship tasteful details.
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.
