Screen Doors for Large Brick Fireplace - Project #11160
Customer Comments: Like mesh doors rather than glass and screen.
Our Comments: Fireplace screen doors with wire mesh provide superb spark protection and are very functional. A fireplace your size will have doors that swing out wide unless you choose a bifold mesh door. Pay close attention to the "Pseudo Clearview" options as they have less obstruction by using a 1/2" wide black frame on each of the center panels making them virtually disappear. Don't get too hung up on the finishes that are shown as every one of these doors can be made in a wide variety of finishes. Pay closer attention to the details of the style and construction.
Fireplace Opening: 47 15/16" (top width) x 48 1/2" (bottom width) x 33" High

Affordable Aluminum Screen 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.
Formed Steel Screen Doors
Formed steel is made from 14 gauge steel bent by machines to create the frame. Thes are priced in between aluminum and solid steel. These two doors can also be made from solid steel at an additional cost.
Medium Range Steel 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.
High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass or Steel, depending on the finish that is desired. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel.
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.
