Project #10897 - Fireplace Doors with Narrow Frames

Customer Comments: Hello Greg, Thank you so much for the follow up. I have decided against the wood paneling, so my current fireplace wall is over the brick and is a cement board compliant with the fire code requirements. It is my understanding that I just need to add the doors and the tile floor at the bottom. I am also looking for a mantle to break the heat from the fireplace to protect the TV. Please let me know whether I am on the right track and what options you have for other doors. Also, please see my other fireplace doors for style reference.

Previous Comment: I would like to add wood shiplap panels to the facade of the fireplace and install the doors with a thin, narrow profile frame that overlaps the panels at the opening to hide the raw edges. There will not be a hearth on the bottom, but maybe a mantel above the fireplace. I intend on placing a TV above the fireplace.

Our Comments: Here are the doors we recommend for your application. We have included a basic steel mantel in black, which we can also supply. You are going to want steel because it can go closer to the fireplace opening than wood or any other combistable material.

Fireplace Opening: 33 1/2" W x 26" H

Minimal Framed Fireplace Doors

Stiletto Fireplace Door Option #1: Stiletto Cutback Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black. This door has a frame that is 15/16" wide and is designed to allow for a 1/4" overlap on all 4 sides. There is very little room for play, so the opening is not perfectly square you may have to fill in some gaps.
Brookfield Fireplace Door Option #2: Brookfield Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black. This door has a 2 1/8 wide frame, which is more simliar to the example you provided of your other fireplace doors.
Slim Moderne
MET Fireplace Door Option #3: MET Single Fireplace Door in Rustic Black with Clear Glass. Yes, this door has a single panel of glass. It looks fantastic when closed, but as with all glass doors, you must open it when you burn your gas fire. So it does have a unique look when it is wide open, but very sophisticated and contemporary when closed.
Hybrid 2 Fireplace Door Option #4: HYBRID-2 Bifold Fireplace Glass Door in Flat Black. This is a very sleek door that has no frame on the sides.
Minimal-1 Fireplace Door Option #5: Minimal-1 Fireplace Glass Door with Polished Nickel Hardware. This is the most minimal door on the market. It is comprised of an upper and lower angle iron (in flat black) that support the polished nickel hardware holding the glass. The hardware can also be black, but we thought the nickel was a nice touch here.

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.
