Glass Doors for Superior Fireplace Model WRT4230 - Project #11266
Customer Comments: Superior Fireplace Insert: WRT4230, Granite Facings, White Mantel
Our Comments: Prefab fireplaces like this can be treated with doors that fit inside the opening or overlap the granite. Overlap fitting doors provide a more finished look but cannot be burned with the doors closed. The inside fitting doors shown on this project can be burned with the doors closed (when burning wood). All doors must be open if burning a gas fire. We have provided all of the mockups in a black finish, which seems to be the most appropriate for the room. Each of the doors is also available in a wide variety of finishes if you prefer something else.
Fireplace Opening: 42" W x 24" 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 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.
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.
Stone Manufacturing Sliding Doors
The two outer panes of glass are fixed and the inner panes slide left and right to open and close. This provides a unique clean look where the doors do not project outwards when open. This is recommended for gas burning fireplaces as it is less convenient for burning wood since the doors only open half way.
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.
