Glass Doors for Modern Hole-In-The-Wall Fireplace - Project #11490
Customer Comments: Hello, Here are a few pictures and measurements of the fire place door we would like to have made. Our house has lots of glass and we would like to keep it looking clean. Glass to be darker if possible, black color frame. What's the darkest glass you can do? Thanks.
Our Comments: We have 3 shades of dark glass: gray, dark graylite-14 and opaque black which you cannot see through at all. Below are some very special doors designed specifically for fireplaces like yours. We also included some modern ornaments that are meant to replace typical gas logs.
Fireplace Opening: 37 1/4" W x 24" 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.
Medium Range Steel Doors
Steel doors are more substantial than the less expensive aluminum doors. They are heavy duty and rugged and are more customizable because the frames are laser cut.
All New Rail Door
The Rail door is an exciting new introduction for 2023 and you can be one of the first to own one. The doors slide left and right on a rail to open and close instead of swinging outwards. Perfect choice for fireplaces like this that are raised in the wall.
The Sliding door is similar to the rail door except the two outer glass panes are fixed and the inner panes slide left and right to open and close.
The Minimal glass door features an angle iron frame on the top and bottom with just the front edge showing. There is no frame on the sides. This door uses 3/8" thick glass for a luxurious look and feel along with very minimal hardware.
The Hybrid features a top and bottom angle iron that holds the glass doors and hardware. There is no frame on the side. This door is ideal for applications like this where you want to recess the door into the opening.
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.
