Some of the Custom Fireplace Screens and Fireplace Doors you see on our website can be made in the above materials and will last many years outdoors. If you are near the ocean where there is salt air, it is even more important to use high quality materials like these to help keep mother nature at bay. Below are just a few examples to give you an idea how they might look
Outdoor Fireplace Glass Doors
Glass Fireplace Doors are the most commonly requested of our outdoor fireplace screens. They offer the most functionality overall and are very convenient because you just open and close them instead of having to lift them out of the way when you are building a fire. When burned with the doors closed, they block the breeze, which can cause a fire to burn erratically and blow sparks and smoke around. They also offer the best protection from sparks. Glass doors can be made from stainless steel, powder coated aluminum, solid brass and zinc coated steel. Mesh options include stainless steel sliding mesh curtains and gate mesh backup doors are made in stainless steel and can have a natural finish or can be painted black. Models from Design Specialties can be burned with the glass closed whereas doors from Stone Manufacturing cannot.
Outdoor Fireplace Mesh Doors
Mesh fireplace doors provide excellent spark protection and functionality. Because they are attached to the fireplace, they are sturdy and do not need to be moved aside when tending the fire. They will block some wind from blowing into the fireplace, but not nearly as well as glass doors. These can be made from any of the outdoor materials.
Outdoor Free Standing Mesh Doors
For those who prefer a mesh door but do not want to bolt it to the fireplace, the free standing mesh doors is a great option. These can be made from Stainless Steel, Solid Brass or Zinc Coated Iron.

Outdoor Fireplace Screen - Single Panel
