Glass Doors for Fireplace with Damper Lever - Project #11396

Custom Fireplace Glass Doors - Project #11396

Our Comments: In this case, there is a damper lever just under the lintel that must be accommodated. To do this, we must make the door fit inside the opening under the lintle and cut a notch in the frame for the lever. For a tighter seal, the back of the frame should rest against the bracket holding the lever. This will leave a portion of the firebrick showing at the bottom, which we can cover with a flange. We would make the door about 1/4" smaller on each side and the gaps will need to be filled with mortar as illustrated.

Fireplace Opening: 30" W x 30" H

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.
