Project #10860 - Glass Doors for Used Brick Prefab Fireplace
Customer Comments: The height of fireplace is 26 inches and width is 29 inches. It is an insert, the last picture is back of fireplace in my garage. There is no flue and no sticker.
Our Comments: This type of prefabricated fireplace normally requires doors that mound directly to the metal fireplace. Because the entire metal face is covered with brick and you have a beautiful metal fence at the bottom, you cannot install typical ZC doors that can be burned with the glass closed. To keep the cost down, you will need to go with mesh doors instead of glass. If you must have glass doors, only the very high end doors will work and they must be burned with the glass open. Even more, the fireplace is not designed to handle the amount of heat generated by overfilling it with wood as shown in your picture. So you must be very careful not to close the glass when you burn a fire like that. You can close the glass doors while the fire is dying out so the fireplace is closed off during the night.
Also, we cannot determine from your pictures whether or not the top row of bricks sticks out further than the rest. So we have shown some of the mockups overlapping the top and some fitting under.
Fireplace Opening: 29" W x 26" 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.
Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes | Hearth Creations Finishes
Steel Fireplace Mesh Doors
These heavy duty doors are made from 3/16" thick solid steel with a heavy gauge wire mesh.
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. You cannot burn this type of door with the glass closed, so they will include either mesh curtains or wire mesh backup doors behind the glass.
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.
