Project #10762 - Glass Doors for See Through Fireplace
See Other Side of Fireplace at: Project #10763
Customer Comments: Fireplace Glass Door Help, Our fireplace measurements are : 35 in wide by 23 in high. We like the sample on your website of Buckingham arch . Project #: 10738. Need two doors have open fireplace as you see in pics. We want one side with glass doors and one side with only fitted screens.
Our Comments: We do not recommend installing a glass door on one side of a see through fireplace. It will void the warranty and will not perform as expected. If you burn the fire with the door closed, the flames will be pushed against the door and will likely break the glass, or at least turn it black. So you must either have doors on both sides or you must always burn the fire with the glass door open. You can read more about this here: Glass Doors for See Through Fireplaces.
We have created mockups of several glass doors for both sides of your fireplace.
Fireplace Opening: 35" W x 23" 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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
