Glass Doors with Blower for Large Brick Fireplace - Project #11389

Customer Comments: Good morning, I am interested in purchasing fireplace doors and would like to see some ideas you can design. I would like to have a blower to get more heat into the room, glass and steel doors with a traditional black iron look with the grate curtain. I am also looking to have the doors seal for when the fireplace is not in use. The actual opening dims inside edge of angle are 47" wide x 34-1/2" tall with 3" angle iron on 3 sides bringing outside dims to 53" wide x 37-1/2" tall with outside leg of angle pointing into fireplace. Top angle sits on the outside of upright angles. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

Our Comments: Looks like the Airculator HE15101 heat circulating system will work great with your fireplace, although it does not extend further than the 3" angle trim, so about 1" of that trim will show around the door frame. Here are examples of how it might look with glass doors in 3 different quality ranges that can be burned with the doors closed. The Tight Fitting doors in Option #3 will provide the best seal when the doors are closed.

Fireplace Opening: 47" W x 34 1/2" 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.

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.

Black Mesh Curtains - These slide back and forth on a rod behind the glass
Gate Mesh Doors - These are separate doors behind the glass that have a flat wire mesh and a black frame.
Insulation: Provides a better seal between the fireplace face and the door frame.
