Glass Doors for Corner Stone Fireplace - Project #11347
Customer Comments: Hi, I'm looking for ideas for my corner fireplace. It has two sides open so will need two doors. We just had the stone done and like the open look. Interested in a thin frame that doesn't block the inside.
Our Comments: Here are several examples of doors that can be made to fit your fireplace. If you will be burning real wood, you are going to want mesh curtains or gate mesh backup doors behind the glass so you can burn a fire with the doors open. With the Brookfield mockups below we show how those options might affect your view into the fireplace. Mesh curtains require that the corner post is at least 3" back from the opening depending on the door model, so gate mesh doors may be your only option if the post is too close. We will discuss this over the phone.
Fireplace Opening: 38 1/2" W (left) x 26" W (right) x 28 1/8" 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.
High End Hand Crafted Wrought Iron/Steel Doors
Hand crafted doors take on a more rugged natural look for those who appreciate craftsmanship tasteful details.
High End Minimal Frame
The Hybrid-2 door from Stone Manufacturing has the least amount of frame and will present the best view of the fireplace inside. There is no frame on the sides at all, just an angle iron at the top and bottom to support the door hardware. There will be a small open gap between the stone and the glass on the sides. The mockups shows a gap between the bottom frame and the stones. This may be the case if that stone is not plumb with the top stone.
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.
