This is a see through isokern fireplace so we need two doors. The side with the grey stone slab surface (first set of 3 pictures) has an opening that measures 40-3/4 inches wide by 32-1/2 inches high. The side with the stacked stone surface (second set of 3 pictures) has an opening that measures 41-1/2 inches wide by 33 inches high. We want a contemporary or modern look. Sleek, simple minimized framing. Cabinet doors each side. A screen mesh. The finishes should be pewter/brushed nickel or similar. Brookfield, Shadow, Legend seem likely candidates for style.
Due to the irregularities in the surface of the stone veneer, this side of your fireplace will require the doors to fit inside the opening. We would leave a gap of about 1/4" on the top and each side from the narrowest width and height measurements. The gap will need to be filled with mortar as shown in our examples. Here is a link to view the same doors on the other side of your fireplace: Project #10188
Side 1: 40 3/4" W x 31 10/2" H
Side 2: 41 1/2" W x 33" H (this side)
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.
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.
