Project #10725 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Dear Hansen Wholesale, I'm interested in the Savannah fireplace door. My brick masonry fireplace is 36 inches wide and 27.25 inches tall. Can you tell me which size is good for my fireplace? Also, how does the door attach to the fireplace?
Our Comments: The Savannah may not be the ideal door for your fireplace because it has a wider than normal frame and you must fit it in-between those projecting brick columns. We usually recommend a narrower frame for this application that does not shrink the opening as much. However, it is somewhat subjective. So we have created several mockups so you can see for yourself. Each of these doors would be cust made about 1/2" narrower than the smallest width between your bricks leaving a 1/4" gap on the sides that would need to be filled with mortar as shown. We would overlap the top by 1/4" (the stiletto) to 2" (the Savannah) depending on the height of the lintel and the door you choose.
Fireplace Opening: 36" W x 27.25" 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.

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.
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.
