Custom Fireplace Glass Doors - Project #11238
Customer Comments: We are looking for a replacement for our fireplace glass doors that is 39" w x 22" high. The fireplace surround will be replaced with tiles. We have an arts and crafts style aesthetic. I'd prefer a bronze rubbed color.
Our Comments: We have selected a couple options for glass doors that can be made with side vents in a crafts style in bronze. We have also included a couple ideas for remodeling this fireplace. One thing we noticed is the mantel is very high and separated from the fireplace due to the raised hearth. We have provided a couple solutions to this problem in the mockups below.
Fireplace Opening: 39" W x 22" 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.

These doors are made from laser cut steel and can be installed directly to the fireplace before the tile is done or overlapping the tile after it is done. Installing the doors overlapping the tile eliminates any concerns about the edges of the edges of the cut tile being exposed around the opening and allows for more room for error. This type of door must be left open when burning a fire.
These doors are also made from laser cut steel but must be installed before the tile is done. Notice how we have added a grout line around the door in these mockups. More care must be taken with the exposed edges of the tile around the opening. However, you can burn a fire with these doors closed.
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.
