Glass Doors for Large Stone Outdoor Fireplace - Project #11222
Customer Comments: Hey Greg, Thank You for your response about the fireplace screen I inquired about. I have attached a couple of pictures below. The fireplace is outside in a pavilion. The exact measurements of the opening are 66” W x 37 1/2” H. I know you said in your email that there could be issues with stability. I want something with a door or doors. The rocks on the fireplace are fake, so I'm not sure about attaching/securing it to them. Anyways any ideas or suggestions, I'm open to them & appreciate your help. Hope to hear from you soon!
Our Comments: There is no issue attaching doors to your fireplace. They come with brackets that mount to the bricks inside using typical masonry sinkers. The main issue will be using a material that can hold up outdoors without rusting and degrading quickly. The options below are made from Stainless Steel or Zinc Coated Wrought Iron. These are quite a bit more expensive than typical doors, but they will hold up over time. You will also want to consider using bifold doors instead of 2 cabinet doors since the cabinet doors fold out twice as wide. We are showing both options.
Fireplace Opening: 66" W x 37 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.

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.
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.
