Glass Doors for White Brick Fireplace with Heat Exchanger - Project #11040

Customer Comments: Hi, I'm attaching pictures of my fireplace. The opening is 34 3/8" wide and about 29 3/4" high. The top edge is about 1" deep before it hits the internal vents. The fireplace has this integrated heating system, pulling air in through the vents on the sides, and venting warmed wire out above the top. You can see the pipes in some of the photos. The current door has a vent along the bottom, which seems to work to feed air to the fire when the glass doors are closed. We are not fans of the brass frames. Something either black, pewter, or maybe satin nickel would be preferred. Looking forward to your suggestions.

Can we get a door with a vent along the bottom? I also would prefer a cabinet style door (instead of bifold). Also, I'm not sure I want a mesh/curtain. I never used it on the current door.

Our Comments: There are a few standard size and stock size doors that you can use for this fireplace. Custom made doors will provide a more refined look as they have narrower frames and more style options. Some of the standard size doors are only available as a bifold but have the option to be cabinet style if you order them custom made. All of the standard doors have bottom vents and on custom doors they are optional. We have provided several mockups depicting both standard size and custom doors for you to consider.

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.
