Mid Century Modern Glass Doors for Rock Fireplace with Metal Mantel - Project #11068

Customer Comments: Hi, I am hoping you can help us with our fireplace mantle and doors. We live in a mountain style home in Lake Arrowhead, CA. The motif is a mid-century modern mountain home, with a touch of modern/farmhouse style. It was built in 1964 with exposed beams and rough sawn paneling, but we are in the midst of a large remodel with all new bathrooms, and kitchen.

Other information: We would like the glass doors to fold out of the way, and there to be a screen so we can enjoy a wood fire with the glass doors open. We would like a 96" metal mantel that will protect the TV from heat. We think the mantel would look best in a charcoal, or dark grey finish. We are planning to replace the fireplace grout with a German schmear, and replace the tile on the hearth. Thank you for your help with this. After we get your suggestions and prices, we would like to order and receive the mantle and doors ASAP.

Our Comments: Here are a few examples of doors with a matching steel mantel in various price ranges that will work with your fireplace.

Fireplace Opening: 50" W x 30" H

Affordable 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.

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.
