Decorative Fireplace Curtain Screens
Mesh curtains have been around since the early 1950's and come in a variety of styles and finishes. One drawback that people have experienced over the years is that when a log rolls off the grate, the mesh curtains do little to prevent it from rolling out onto the hearth or floor. To prevent this from happening, you can add a bottom bar that will prevent the mesh from flying open. We have depicted that in some of the mockups below.
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.
