Project 10155 - Glass Doors for Outdoor Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hello. Will you provide me with a mockup of the “Buckingham Mantel” in Solar Bronze, Cast Bronze, Classic Bronze, and Ancient Age. My outdoor fireplace opening is 45" wide by 29.25" high. Pictures are attached.
Opening Size: 45" W x 29 1/4" H
Our Comments: We have created the mockups your requested. A couple important notes: Because the mantel door extends wider at the top, we recommend that you chip away the stones at the to to allow the door to be made wider and minimize the gaps on the side. Since this location is going to be exposed to a lot of moisture, we must make this door from solid 304 stainless steel instead of the normal steel, otherwise it will eventually rust and cause issues with the finish and hinges. The 304 stainless steel can be powder coated in any of the finishes you requested just like normal steel. The handles that are normally used on the Buckingham door cannot be made from stainless steel, so we will need to use a more basic bar type handle as we have created in the mockups. Stainless steel will increase the price of the door dramatically, but it is the only way we can make this style for an outdoor application.
The Buckingham Mantel door is one of our own custom designs where we combine the features to two of our custom doors: the Buckingham Arch and the Mantel Door. Hence the reason we are calling it the "Buckingham Mantel". Price is per quote for stainless steel.
We have supplied links to each door below their corresponding picture so you can get an idea of the prices and options in normal steel.
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.
