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.

We can use a wider frame on certain glass doors that will change the proportions of the fireplace. Some of these are very high end doors made from solid brass that can be made in a satin brass finish.
Frame screens have sliding mesh curtains. These are all made from solid brass. The Shadow Box is one of the best ways to change the proportions of this fireplace. The Shadow Box is about 2" deep and allows us to make the frame wider than the fireplace opening. We would use a fine weave brass finsihed mesh that can be bunched up on the sides to hide the marble and less bunched in the middle for fire viewing.
Solid Brass Castings
Use your imagination to create the perfect fireplace screen with these solid brass castings from Stone Manufacturing. Compliment architectural details in the mantel or other furnishings in our home, or simply create your own unique look. Available in a wide variety of finishes.
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.
