Glass Doors for Outdoor Brick See Through Fireplace - Project #11426

Customer Comments: Hi, My project is very similar to Project #10518 on your website: 2 sided outdoor fireplace - one side facing a patio, one side facing porch. We are looking for glass doors for one side (patio side?). The biggest challenge we have is wind blowing the ash around the deck after the fire is out (the fireplace has a screened in porch on one side and a stone pool deck on the other.

Our Comments: Below are mockups of doors made from aluminum and from stainless steel. The aluminum doors can be made with stainless steel hardware except for the bifold hinges, which may need to be replaced periodically. We recommend a flat black finish for these doors for the best durability. As we discussed via email, glass doors need to be added to both sides on see thru fireplaces.

Fireplace Opening: 48" W x 31 1/4" 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.

About Finishes!


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.

Stainless Steel

These doors are made from laser cut 304 stainless steel for extended durability. The doors made by Hearth Creations incorporate ceramic glass which can handle a higher degree of thermal shock, which is great for outdoors when you light a fire in cold weather. Due to the physical properties of ceramic glass, the edges cannot be polished smooth so each pane must be fully framed.

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.
