Project #10886 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hello, I would like to replace the glass door for my fireplace. Please see attached pictures. The opening is 42.5"W by 24" H. I tried to take a picture of the model but it is very difficult. I just want to replace the door with a standard black frame and mesh screen. Please review and let me know if this is doable , the cost, and the time frame. Thank you
Our Comments: Most of our fireplace doors are available with a black frame. We have created several mockups so you can see some choices. Anything not shown in black can be black. Most of these cannot have mesh curtains added because they require about 2 1/2" extra depth inside your fireplace, which you do not have right around the opening. Instead, we can replace your existing mesh curtains with higher quality mesh that is new. Or, you can have gate mesh backup doors behind the glass.
Fireplace Opening: 42 1/2" W x 24" 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.

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.
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.
