Project #10774 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hello, We just remodeled the fireplace and need to fit it for doors. It’s gas with a flue. Dimensions 28"w 39."h (42" from floor to top of hole). The grey tile you see on the floor of the second photo will be used on the floor in front of it and to create a border around the fireplace. The drywall is being trimmed in black metal today. For context, I’m including a photo of what it used to look like, with formed cement - we created studs around the formed cement "stones" and dry walled on top of that. Design choice: I like the simple black modern aluminum- for context, we have oil rubbed bronze and black fixtures in the living room. Is it possible to get brushed nickel handles (see photo 3)? I can send a link to how the rest of the remodel looks. Thanks.
Second Communication: Hi Greg, Now that I’m looking at it, I think the black handles would be better. We’ll want to burn the fire with doors closed, so draft assembly sounds necessary. See attached for updated photos in case it changes anything. Now that the trim is in place, the measurements are 26.5”w x 38”h on the exterior trim. Let me know if there are other measurements that are needed.
Our Comments: Here are mockups of the Brookfield door that should help you decide which way to go.
Fireplace Opening: 38" W x 26 1/2" 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.

Brookfield 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.
