We're in the process on renovating our house and would like a mock up for fireplace doors. It's a two sided fireplace and the measurements are included in the photos. We plan to finish the brick above with faux stone (like below) once the doors are installed. We'd also like to install vented gas logs and would appreciate a recommendation.
Long Width: 36 1/4"
Short Width: 11 3/4"
Height: 29 7/8"
Our Comments: We would make the door overlap about 1/2" to 1" on the top and sides and sit flush on the bottom stones. The overlap on the top depends on the lintel thickness. We took the liberty of graphically creating the finished look of the stone facing assuming this is what you have planned.
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.
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.
