Screen Options for Outdoor Fireplace - Project #11106

Customer Comments: I am looking for a custom cover for our outdoor fireplace. The opening is 37 high 42 wide. there is a very small lip at the bottom of the fireplace but only 3 inches deep.

Our Comments: Screens for outdoor fireplaces must be made from special materials that resist rust. These materials include Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Solid Brass and Zinc Coated Wrought Iron. These materials can all be painted black. We can create glass doors, mesh doors or sliding mesh screens from these materials. Below are examples of each.

Fireplace Opening: 42" W x 37" 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.

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.
