Project 10145 - Fireplace Doors for Prefab Fireplace
We are looking at # 6 Carolina Mission with copper vain finish. Also #8 Carolina window pane with Mahogany finish. Also #23 DS costom craftsman with Bronze burst finish.
Fireplace Opening: 36" W x 24" H
Black Metal: 46" W x 32 1/2" H
Our Comments: We have created examples of the Carolina door you requested as well as examples of doors that will cover the entire black metal face of the fireplace and help hide the unsightly interior at the top and bottom.
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.
Notes from project 10079: This is an example of a stock door improperly installed on a zero clearance fireplace. This can create a fire hazard since doors like this do not provide the airflow necessary to keep the metal firebox cool. The customer sent us these pictures asking for us to create some mock-ups, but we are waiting for them to send us some pictures with the doors removed so we can determine how the proper doors can be installed and then create some examples.

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.
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.
