Glass Doors for Outdoor Rock Fireplace - Project #11201

Customer Comments: 36.75 high 44.75 wide, stone in front narrows a bit more. Thanks

Our Comments: Glass doors that are exposed to the elements outdoors need to be made of materials that are resistant to rust. Below are examples of each of the following materials used for outdoor fireplaces: Aluminum, stainless steel, solid brass and zinc coated wrought iron. These would be made slightly smaller than the stone opening and the gap would be filled with mortar. Only the doors made by Design Specialties can be burned with the doors closed. The others must be burned open.

Fireplace Opening: 44 3/4" W x 36 3/4" 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.

Affordable Aluminum Doors

Aluminum is the least expensive material. The outer hinges are stainless steel but the bifold hinges are normal steel. For this reason, we normally recommend cabinet doors when installed outdoors. However, due to the size of your fireplace, you must use bifold doors, so the bifold hinges may need to be replaced periodically.

Stainless Steel

Stainless steel is the most popular choice for outdoors. It can be powder coated in black or some other dark finishes that will hold up well outdoors. The mesh doors or sliding mesh curtains and all of the hardware will be stainless steel.

Hand Crafted Solid Brass

Solid brass has been used in outdoor applications for centuries. It is most often painted black but can also be made in an unfinished brass that will develop a natural patina over time.

Zinc Coated Wrought Iron

Zinc coated wrought iron is extremely durable and has a more rugged look since it is hand forged. It is also the most expensive.

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.

Black Mesh Curtains - These slide back and forth on a rod behind the glass
Gate Mesh Doors - These are separate doors behind the glass that have a flat wire mesh and a black frame.
Insulation: Provides a better seal between the fireplace face and the door frame.
