Hi, I am interested in getting a glass door with screen for fireplace. The ones that I am interested in are below with the dimensions. I am looking for a light color frame, light gray or satin nickel finish. I do not want a wide frame but want a good fit. Examples of doors:
Silhouette Custom Fireplace Doors (Masonry Or ZC), Shadow Custom Fireplace Doors (Masonry Or ZC).
Fireplace Opening: 38" W x 29 3/4" H
Our Comments: The doors you have selected are excellent choices for your fireplace. Due to the irregularities in the stone facing, the door will need to be fit inside the opening made about 1/2" less in width and 1/4" less in height. This will leave a gap of about 1/4" on the top and sides that will need to be filled with mortar or grout. We have created examples of the two doors you liked that are aluminum frames and added the Carolina door which is a 3/16" thick solid steel frame.
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.
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.
