Customer Comments: I'd like to get a quote. I have a heatilator HB36A that I want to reface.
Our Comments: Here are a couple mockups showing the doors we discussed over the phone. Please read the comments below regarding the amount of slots in the frame.
Fireplace Opening: Unknown
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.

Retrim Firpelace Doors
These doors have vent slots cut into the frame and are used to completely cover the black metal of a heat circulating zero clearance fireplace. Both options are attached using very strong rare earth magnets. The amount of vent slots depends on the dimensions of your current louvers. We have chosen to show the mockups with 4 slots. The manufacturer will determine the amount of slots needed once they have received the order and been provided the dimensions.
Before measuring you must remove the existing glass doors and the upper and lower tracks that hold them in place.
W - Width: Find the narrowest width between the tiles. We will make the frame 1/4" smaller than this dimension.
H - Height: Find the shortest height from the top tiles to the hearth. We will make the frame 1/8" shorter than this dimension.
L1 - Lower Louver: Measure the distance from the hearth to the top of the lower louver.
L2 - Upper Louver: Measure the distance from the tile to the bottom of the upper louver.
H2 - Opening Height: Measure the distance between the upper and lower louvers. This is the actual fireplace opening height.
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.
