Glass Doors for See Through Stone Fireplace - Project #10999

Customer Comments: Excited to see the "Mockups" but I'm actually needing a bid on the two doors detailed in the attached pdf document. I believe I have provided you with all the information you require. It would be nice if the mockup has the Sunrise Window Pane doors. Also note that the Legend has a custom 2 15/16 wide frame which I have already confirmed with the company is able to be done. Any other questions give me a call.

Our Comments: We have provided mockups fo rthe two doors as requested. We also added a couple others that depict completely different ways to handle this fireplace. Due to the irregularity in the stone, we normally will recommend fitting the doors inside and filling the gaps with mortar in order to provide a clean finished look. Overlap fitting doors will leave wide gaps between the stone and the back of the frame. If the overall finished plane of the stone is not too irregular, an overlap fit may be sufficient, but if any of the stones stick out much further than others, it will prevent the door frame from going flat to the rest of the stones. Cutting a piece of plywood to the finished dimensions you requested may be the best way to determine how large the gaps will be with an overlap fit.

Fireplace Opening: 36 1/2" W x 22" H (to lintel)

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.

About Finishes!


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.

Stiletto Fireplace Door Option #1: Stiletto Fireplace Glass Door in Solar Bronze with Bronze Glass. Shown as an inside fit with mortar. The mortar can be painted white to match the rest of the fireplace.
Savannah Fireplace Door Option #2: Savannah Fireplace Glass Door in Solar Bronze with Bronze Glass.

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.

Legend Fireplace Door Option #3: Legend Fireplace Glass Door with Sunrise Window Pane in Solar Bronze and Bronze Glass.

High End Hand Crafted Wrought Iron/Steel Doors

Hand crafted doors take on a more rugged natural look for those who appreciate craftsmanship tasteful details.

Craftsman Glass Door Option #4: Craftsman Fireplace Door in Classic Bronze with Bronze Glass. This door has non-functional fixed end panels that create the illusion of width and bring the fireplace more into proportion. Similar to the look of today's linear fireplaces that are quite popular. We can do this with the legend door shown above as well.
Armada Glass Door Option #5: Armada Fireplace Glass Door in Forged Iron with Gray 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.

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.
