Screens for Fireplace with Andirons - Project #11196
Our Comments: Glass doors were originally requested for this project. Because the andiron shanks will not allow the andirons to fit completely inside the fireplace, most glass doors will not work since the glass is relatively even with the front of the opening. There are some very high end glass doors that have unique frame materials that stand away from the fireplace up to 2", which will allow the andirons to work. Other options we recommend would include 3-fold screens or single panel screens with custom andiron cutouts. Here are some examples.
Fireplace Opening: 36" W x 32" 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.

High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass Glass Doors
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass and are available in a hand polished finish that is similar to the andirons. Doors like these are very expensive and can be made with a solid brass crown molding or split tube. We have chosen to illustrate the split tube. This door is made from a solid brass tube cut to the necessary depth to allow for the andirons.

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.
