Side 2: 34 1/8" W x 32 7/8" H
Our Comments: Fireplace doors made for outdoor fireplaces that are in uncovered locations should be made either from powder coated aluminum or 301 stainless steel. The aluminum door can be made with stainless steel hinges for an upcharge, which we highly recommend. The 301 stainless can also be powder coated. Powder coat finishes will hold up well but will fade and become chalky over time. The stainless steel doors are laser cut from a single sheet of 3/16" thick solid 301 stainless steel, so they are quite a bit more expensive but will withstand the elements for many years. Stainless steel is usually considered a more modern look, but when done with the arched window pane as shown below, it takes on a more traditional appeal.
We have supplied links to each door below their corresponding picture so you can get an idea of the prices and options.
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.

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.
