Custom Fireplace Glass Doors - Project #11105
Customer Comments: Hello, We would like to install glass doors on our fireplace to manage a very significant draft. Width 44, Height 31, Stone depth 4 1/2, Gap 4 1/2 (then the insert starts)
Our Comments: Here are a few examples of doors that can be made to fit your fireplace. Just so you are aware, prefab fireplaces are not allowed to have tightly sealed doors. They must be made to allow air to flow freely into the fireplace in case someone accitdentally closes the doors while a fire is burning. The airflow for arched doors like these would be provided by having 1/4" spacers between the back of the frame and the stones. You will still get a significant reduction in draft coming into the room, but it will not be a tight seal.
Fireplace Opening: 44" W x 31" 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.

Hand Crafted Wrought Iron/Steel Doors
Hand crafted doors take on a more rugged natural look for those who appreciate craftsmanship tasteful details.
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.
