Project #10988 - Solid Brass Bar and Mesh for Corner Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hello, My grandma and I are trying to get a metal screen that opens in the center with two brass colored handles and hangs from a same colored rod. Here are the pictures requested from the website. I put the dimensions on the close up picture. There is a corner that the screen has to wrap around. Please let me or my grandma know what can be done.
Our Comments: We call this a "Bar and Mesh". This can be done with just the top bar or top and bottom bar. The bottom bar can have a "Pet Deterrent Channel" that prevents the mesh from being pushed backwards making it difficult for pets and small children to get into the fireplace. We did not get your picture with the dimensions, so we included some instructions for measuring.

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.

Bar and Mesh
The Lintel is the steel angle iron beneath the stones. The brass bar will mount directly to the lintel and overlap the front edge by 1/4". The mesh will hang 1" back from the front edge of the lintel. The right side (front) will have a gap where the mesh hangs behind the hearth because the left side goes over the hearth and the right side does not (see Fig. 2 below). If you choose the bottom bar option, it will help hide this gap, but you will probably want to fill the gap with mortar.

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.
