Overlap Fitting ZC Doors
Our Comments: If the fascia around a zero clearance fireplace infringes on the opening as in the example below, many of the ZC doors on the market cannot be safely installed. There are special requirements for airflow and most doors that meet those needs must be attached directly to the metal fireplace and cannot overlap the fascia. The doors below can have spaces that hold them about 1/4" away from the fascia to allow enough air to flow into the fireplace so that it does not overheat. We show most of these doors in black, but they are all available in a wide range of Designer Finishes and Trimmings.
Pricing: Prices below are the ballpark starting price for a typical 36" prefab fireplace. Add approximately $200 to $300 for a 42" fireplace depending on the door and more for larger fireplaces. These are all by quote since there are so many options, but we wanted to show you the base price for some of the less expensive choices, which is usually in a black finish. These are also available in solid brass, nickel or chrome finishes at a much higher price. Please call for a quote: 1-800-201-1193 or use our Email Your Fireplace Pictures
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.

These doors can also be made to overlap the facing on a prefabricated fireplace. They have air slots built-in to the sub-frame with 1/4" gaps on the left and right side glass panes that allow air to flow into the fireplace. This allows them to fit flat against the facing without the need for 1/4" spacers on the back of the frame.

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.
