Project #10854 - Glass Doors for Traditional Tile Fireplace

Customer Comments: We are looking to purchase a fireplace door. We are specifically interested in the Stoll brand of doors, with bar steel. Something with designs in the glass - maybe - but not clear glass probably gray. We desire around a 1 inch overhang so we can view as much tile as possible. Probably the Carolina style. I don't know if you have a full door screen (left swinging). Also we would like the outside hinges as we think they are stronger and more durable.

Our width and height of opening is: W - 28 7/8" and H - 27 3/8". Depth for the clip on is about 5 1/4" - but if there are z-strips, that would be really easy for us to install ourselves.

Attached are several pictures. We appreciate your help in getting an idea of what our options are and how the door would look. Please call with any questions. Thank you!

Our Comments: We do not carry the Stoll brand, but we do carry comparable and superior doors by Design Specialties and Stone Manufacturing. Here are some examples that fit your description.

Fireplace Opening: 28 7/8" W x 27 3/8" H

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.

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.
