Glass Doors for Granite Fireplace - Project #11507

Customer Comments: We need help figuring out some fireplace glass door installation options. We like a bronze color or even a Toffee color. We like the bifold doors and chain link doors. We have granite and would like the first choice to have it sit inside of the granite area without overlap. Second choice with the most minimal overlap. I have some concerns about the way it will mount as the granite was added after onto a brick faced fireplace. At the top of the opening, the granite comes down by 5 1/4 from the metal "lental" on the inside (see pictures). Thanks for your help.

Our Comments: Here are some glass doors in a variety of materials and finishes representing a wide price range.

Fireplace Opening: 39 1/2" W x 22 5/8" 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.

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.

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.

High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass

These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass or Steel, depending on the finish that is desired. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel.

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.
