Glass Doors for Square Stone Fireplace - Project #11378
Customer Comments: Hi!, Looking for help to pick out fireplace doors. Wondering what options I have with the rough opening variability of the stone. The opening is 31" high and is 37" wide (* some variability due to the uneven edge of the stone block). 100 year old house, we like the either bifold or two door opening including black mesh screens. Black steel or black aluminum frames. I like the simple, clean lines of 10904, 11275, and 11293. Thanks.
Our Comments: We can make the doors fit inside the opening and you can fill the gaps with mortar. Doors with narrower frames are most appropriate for that application. Doors with wider frames can be used to overlap the opening and conceal the gaps.
Fireplace Opening: 37" W x 31" H

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
Hand crafted doors take on a more rugged natural look for those who appreciate craftsmanship tasteful details. These may be more decorative than you requested, but they do go well with stone fireplaces and have wider frames that are great for overlapping your type of 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.
