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.
High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass or Steel, depending on the finish that is desired. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel.
Hello, Attached are the different angles/photos of the fireplace. It appears the fireplace is a prefab with a gas pipe. It does have a chimney but there is no lintel bar, just marble tile over the front of it. Measurements are based on the inside lengths going from tile to tile and not the inset metal of the fireplace. Below is what I got off my first pass:
1. Top - 42 3/16
2. Middle - 42 3/16
3. Bottom - 42 1/8
1. Left - 21 3/16
2. Center - 21 1/8
3. Right - 21
As for what we are looking for:
1. Something to tie into existing fireplace nicely
2. Nothing ornate but simple & nice
3. It can have some design to it but not looking for a bevel frame since the marble around it is flat/smooth
4. Trackless Bi-Fold doors
5. Solid mesh gate (unless recommended doors do not require one)
6. Hoping to get an inside fit
7. Want to show off as much of the fireplace as possible (i.e., not cover it up with a lot of large metal unless the design makes the area pop)
If it helps, unless you have better options, I have identified some fireplaces online while goggling. Please do not limit your professional opinions to the selections below but instead use them as a proof of concept for what we are looking for (we are not even sure if they will work).
5. Stone Manufacturing HYBRID-2
Any help would greatly be appreciated.
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.
