Polshed Chrome and Silver Glass Doors for Granite Fireplace - Project #11121
Customer Comments: Most similar to Project #11096. Desire bifold. Polished chrome or silver being powdercoat
Our Comments: The small amount of black metal of your prefabricated that is visible around the opening prevents most of the doors shown on Project #11096 from fitting your fireplace. Also, most fireplace doors are not available in polished chrome. With that said, we have created mockups of similar doors you might like. Whether or not you want mesh curtains or gate mesh backup doors will also affect these choices. We will discuss these options further over the phone.
Fireplace Opening: 43 1/2" W x 22 5/8" H (1/2" masonry depth to firebox)
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.

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.
High End Polished Chrome
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Chrome Plated Solid Brass. These are finished with a jewelers rouge with the finest quality most durable polished chrome finish in the fireplace industry. These doors are in the $3000 to $5000 price range.
How To Measure
Each door has it's own frame width and depth (how much it recesses into the opening). Adding mesh curtains also impacts the required depth. To help us determine which doors will actually work with your fireplace, please provide the following measurements:
W1: Smallest width between stones:
W2: Width of black metal opening:
WL: Width of black metal showing (left side):
WR: Width of black metal showing (right side):
WT: Width of black metal showing (top):
WB: Width of black metal showing (bottom):
H1: Smallest height between the stones:
H2: Height of black metal opening:
D: Depth from black metal opening to inner black metal at bottom (see Diagram 2)
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.
