Doors for Large Full Arch Fireplace - Project #11394
Customer Comments: Hi, We are looking at a fireplace screen for our community center. The arc is 37" tall at the center point and 72" wide. We are looking at doors with screen or possibly glass.
Our Comments: We have provided mockups of 3 alternatives. Please keep in mind that due to the large size of the fireplace, we cannot produce mockups with the proper proportaion of frame size for the fireplace. The frames would be about half as wide as what is shown. Please see the "Correct Proportion" illustration for details about this.
Fireplace Opening: 72" W x 37" 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.

Full Arched Fireplace Doors
These doors are made from laser cut steel with two fixed end panels. These can be made with glass doors, wire mesh doors or both.
Free Standing Screens
The mockups above show the frames around the screens and doors about double the actual size, which is not correct. This is due to the fact that we had to stretch an existing product photo of an arched screen that was about half the size of your fireplace. The illustration below shows how that original photo looks in actual proportion to your fireplace, giving you a better perspective of the true frame width.
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.
