Glass Doors for Corner Fireplace with Overhang - Project #11240

Customer Comments: Hello I'm interested in a glass/metal enclosed design for my fireplace. I just bought my house. Right now it's just mesh screen covering the opening and I have curious cats that like to poke around. I want to make sure they don't get in there. I have to tape cardboard over the opening and can't use the fireplace. Pictures attached. I'm not sure where to measure. The whole opening it's self or where the tile stops?

Our Comments: Below are examples of glass doors that can be made either way, to cover the area just in front of the fireplace or the entire L-Shaped area. Some of the doors must be made to fit entirely inside the opening. In such cases, we will make them about 1/8" shorter than the smallest height. That gap can be filled with grout. Other options can overlap the front and fit inside under the ledge or overlap the entire opening. Doors that overlap the left side will slightly overhang the hearth by the thickness of the door frame. Once we have determined which type of fit you like best, we will be able to provide measuring instructions and quote prices.

About Finishes!


Affordable Aluminum Doors

Aluminum is an excellent material for fireplace doors because it does not rust and can handle high temperatures when treated with powder coated finishes. It is also the most affordable.

Brookfield Fireplace Door Option #1: Design Specialties Brookfield Corner Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black. Shown made to fit just the opening space. This door needs to be fit inside flush with the front edge of the marble.
Brookfield Fireplace Door Option #2: Design Specialties Brookfield Corner Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black. Shown made to fit the entire space overlapping the marble. The frame will overhang the hearth about 1/2" on the left side if the overlap fit is chosen. It can also be made to fit inside flush with the marble.

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.

Legend Fireplace Door Option #3: Design Specialties Legend Corner Fireplace Glass Door in Forged Iron. This door is shown fitting the fireplace opening. The front frame overlaps the tile about 1/2" while the left side is notched to fit under the ledge. This door can also be made to fit inside the opening completely.

High End Hand Crafted Sliding Doors

The front side of the door has 2 fixed panes of glass on the right and left sides and 2 sliding panes in the center. Sliding doors are great for corner fireplaces like this where you do not want the doors hanging out when they are open. The door can be made with an all glass corner or framed corner. The manufacturer is best known for their use of very high end solid brass, which is available in a wide variety of distinctive casting trims and designer finishes as shown lower on this page.

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.
