Glass Doors to Convert Arch to Rectangle - Project #11134
Customer Comments: Hi- my wife wants to eliminate the arch on our fireplace. Do you sell a black matte square insert that would give the illusion of a square fire place? Measurements: 33.5w x 31h (highest point with arch). We don't use the heat exchanger. The blower is a bit noisy.
Our Comments: We can certainly accomplish your wife's desires. We would need to make the top frame of the door to meet the lowest point of the arch to 1/2" to 1" taller than the high point to overlap the opening. Here are some examples of this. If you remove the heat exchanger it will allow us to overlap the bottom and create doors that have a linear look, which is a very popular trend, particularly when there is a TV above the fireplace.
Fireplace Opening: 33 1/2" 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.

Arch to Rectangle Fireplace Doors
Steel doors are more substantial than the less expensive aluminum doors. They are heavy duty and rugged and are more customizable because the frames are laser cut.
Hearth Creations is a very specialized high end line of fireplace doors that allows us to create some very interesting designs.
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.
