Project #10919 - Glass Doors for Used Brick Fireplace Well
Customer Comments: Hi Terry, Thanks for connecting with me earlier this week via your website's chat function. Here are the photos of our fireplace, per the instructions on the website. Also, in case you're wondering I found your website via a referral from a general contractor, LeVine Construction Group, that is doing work on our house right now.Measurements: 36" width, 32" height, 30" depth (front of opening to back of firebox on floor). Our initial interest is the Design Specialties Carolina Arch Doors. We like the bifold glass and the powder coat color Cast Bronze or Solar Bronze.
Our Comments: We have created several mockups to consider. The Carolina doors can be made with a 1 1/2" or 2" wide frame which overlap the opening either 1" and 1 1/2" on each side respectively. This does not include the lintel, which normally takes about 1/2" of the overlap at the top. We point this out because there is no way to cover the damaged bricks at the top with the Carolina door. The Legend doors can be made to any width frame we want, so we have included several options for Legend doors as well as a very interesting roller door for your consideration.
Fireplace Opening: 36" W x 32" 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
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.
