Project #10749 - Glass Doors for Fireplace

Customer Comments: Hello, Attached are a couple of photos of our fireplace & the existing doors and screen plus measurements. We recently painted the red brick to a dark charcoal/grey. This is family/den area, and modern/contemporary is my style. We want to update the frame, glass doors and screen. A nickel, satin nickel/silver may work well. I am open to suggestions.

Our Comments: We have created several mockups for you showing the less expensive aluminum doors that fit inside the opening and the more elegant solid brass doors that can overlap the bricks and create a more refined finished look. We recommend using gray glass on the overlap fitting doors to help hide the inside of the fireplace when the doors are closed.

Fireplace Opening: 47 1/2" W x 37" H (brick opening)

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.

About 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.

High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass

These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass or Steel, depending on the finish that is desired. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel.

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.
