Iron Age 6 Glass Doors for Small Fireplace - Project #11195
Customer Comments: We are looking a getting new fireplace doors. We were looking at the #RT-14 Retrim 14. Thank you for your time.
Our Comments: The Retrim doors are designed for prefabricated heat circulating fireplaces that have vents (see example below). We can modify the design several ways to accommodate your brick fireplace. We would not recommend using the bottom louver because your fireplace is already rather short. These doors must be burned open and can be closed when the fire is dying out to keep the heat in your home. You will probably want to invest in a new grate, so take a look at our Custom Fireplace Grates.
Fireplace Opening: 33" W x 20 1/2" 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.

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.
