Custom Fireplace Glass Doors - Project #11297
Customer Comments: Glass Doors for Large Red Brick Outdoor Fireplace - Project #11297
Our Comments: We have presented choices using 4 different materials for outdoor fireplaces. Aluminum, Stainless Steel, Solid Brass and Wrought Iron. Each of these is made from hardware designed to handle the elements. Mesh curtains are all stainless steel painted black. The Design Specialties doors are the only ones that can be burned with the doors closed. All of the other brands must be burned with the doors open.
Fireplace Opening: 50" W x 34" 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.
Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes | Hearth Creations 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.
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.
High End Hand Crafted Wrought Iron/Steel Doors
These doors are made from a special zinc coated wrought iron that is extremely curable outdoors. We have featured this particular door in a rust finish, which tends to really hide the weathering.
High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass. Solid brass is the must durable of all outdoor materials. Unlike any other brand, all of the components including the frame, hinges, handles and damper assembly are made from solid brass for maximum durability outdoors.
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.
