Glass Doors for Floor to Ceiling White Brick Fireplace - Project #11472
Customer Comments: Hi, My wife and I are trying to decide between the Brookfield and Savannah for our living room, but we can't make up our minds. Our house is a transitional style. We're also debating between Textured Black or Vintage Iron. Also how opaque is the grey (tinted) glass? Is it half as transparent as clear?
Our Comments: We have created mockups of the two options you are considering. Gray glass is tinted to roughly 35% darkness than clear glass. When the fireplace is painted black inside like yours, it may appear even less transparent and does a great job of hiding what's inside the fireplace when the doors are closed. You must burn gas logs with the doors open, so whether you choose clear or gray glass depends on whether you want to see inside the fireplace when it is not in use. We also included a brand new sliding "Rail" door for you to consider made specifically for your type of fireplace. It's in a much price range, but it is perfect for the application.
Fireplace Opening: 45 7/16" W x 24 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.

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.
New - Rail Door
The Rail door is designed specifically for fireplaces that are built floor to ceiling. The doors slide to the left and right on a track with rollers to open and close instead of swinging outwards. This is a clean looking new concept that will set your fireplace aside from others.
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.
