Doors for Outdoor Arched Fireplace - Project #11274
Customer Comments: I've attached photo's of my fireplace and opening. I've also attached a simple drawing with measurements and what I would like. My fireplace is under a pavilion and outside. I have a problem with winds and smoke coming out the front of the fireplace on those days, so I want a arched smoke guard and two doors. It can be made to go inside or overlap. Please advise and thanks.
Our Comments: Glass doors will do the best for solving your smoke problem. The glass doors can have mesh backup doors so you can burn the fire with the glass open when there is no breeze. Whether you choose the glass doors with mesh backup doors or just mesh doors, they would be made from stainless steel in a powder coat finish. We can make them with a 5" wide top frame and 2" wide side frames or we can make a rectangular door with an arched top.
Fireplace Opening: 42" W x 29 1/4" to 35 3/4"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.

Rectangle Arch Doors
Free Standing Screens
Surround with Rectangle Doors
This option uses a stainless steel sheet metal surround that is held in place by an aluminum framed glass door. This is the least expensive option for adding glass doors. Aluminum doors have an outdoor option where the hinges and gate mesh are made from stainless steel. The stainless hinges are only available on twin doors. Bifold hinges are not available in stainless steel and are not recommended for use in outdoor application. If you must have bifold doors, those hinges will need to be replaced periodically (possibly annually).
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.
