Glass Doors for Fireplace In The Wall - Project #11031

See the actual after pictures for this project here!

Customer Comments: We are considering alternatives to improve the look of an existing Master Bedroom gas fireplace. The unit is a Superior RD 3800 installed in approximately 1980. It functions fine, using a wall switch as on/off with a running pilot light. The doors must be in the "open" position when it is running. Currently there are two bi-fold doors that function fine, with clear glass. I am wondering if a modernized door system would provide a more updated look?

Our Comments: This fireplace is an open slate and there are many directions you can go with it. The mockups below are meant to stimulate your imagination and come up with a direction that works for you. Some of the doors can only fit inside the opening while others can overlap the wall. This has to do with safety requirements and how they are met by the two different manufacturers that make these doors.

Fireplace Opening: 39 1/4" W x 20 7/8" 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.

Stone Manufacturing

These doors can overlap the opening: These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from solid brass, Steel or wrought iron depending on the finish that is applied. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel. We feature several "Sliding Doors" where the outer two panes of glass are fixed and the inner panes slide left and right to open and close. Sliding doors are ideal for this application since they do not stick out when the doors are open.

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.
