Solid Brass Screens For Traditional Fireplace - Project #11430
Customer Comments: This is for a master bedroom fireplace. Want glass door screen which will provide minimal obstruction to viewing the gas logs. Assume I also need a mesh curtain screen - need one that can be pushed to the side when the fire is not in use. Would like to retain the brass andirons that are seen in the photo (but would move them closer to the center). There is a bad draft that comes down this fireplace so the main purpose is to try to suppress that draft. Will need to retain access to the pilot light/burner control in the lower right corner of the fire box. Not sure but think I want a simple black frame. Looking forward to receiving your suggestions.
Our Comments: As we discussed in our email exchange, the glass doors will not work with your andirons unless you can push them back into the fireplace or cut the shanks so they can stand out in front of the doors. So here are some other options that do not have glass doors. This is how we would treat a fireplace like yours to maintain the Traditional style created by your brass andirons. If you prefer a polished brass finish, we can actually have your andirons refinished as we are showing in one of the examples.

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.
