Fireplace Screen Options for Burning Wood - Project #11062

Customer Comments: I would like to order a fireplace screen that's approx 51x40. #302 and #303. ultra clear. channel feet.

Our Comments: As per our subsequent communications, the free standing glass screens are not appropriate for burning wood so we have provided the following mockups showing other viable options. These have been rendered in gloss black to compliment your existing fireplace tools but they can be done in a wide variety of finishes.

Fireplace Opening: 51" W x 40" H (not confirmed)

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.

Glass Doors

Glass doors will provide the ultimate protection and efficiency. These particular doors can be burned with the doors open or closed

Silhouette Fireplace Door Option #1: Silhouette Bifold Fireplace Glass Door in Gloss Black. These can be made with Gate Mesh Backup Doors or Mesh Curtains Behind the Glass.

Free Standing Screens

A free standing fireplace screen is an excellent option. These provide excellent spark protection with a very minimalist appearance. This type of screen must be moved out the way and set aside when tending the fire.

Single Panel Screen
Solid Brass Fireplace Screen Option #2: 1P10M Single Panel Fireplace Screen with Solid Brass Beveled Extrusion in Gloss Black.
Bowed Fireplace Screen Option #3: 1P30M Single Panel Doubled Banded Bowed Fireplace Screen in Gloss Black. A bowed screen can create a unique contemporary look.

Frame Screen

The frame screen is a sliding mesh curtain with a frame that is attached to the fireplace. These are very convenient because they do not have to be moved out of the way when tending the fire, you simply open the mesh curtains.

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.
