Project 10215 - Mesh Panel Door for Prefab Fireplace
Customer Request: Design Staff, Attached find 4 photos of my fireplace along with a pdf file showing the measurements of the opening. Please provide a mock up using your "Brookfield" style doors. Specs are: Black frame, Bifold clear glass doors, No frame around glass, "curtain" style screen if available.
Our Comments: Due to the way the brick and tile has been installed covering the black metal of the fireplace infringing on the opening, the Brookfield cannot be made to overlap the facia. This would cause heat buildup between the facia and the framing used to install the fireplace, which could eventually cause a fire. So, for the look of a door overlapping the tile, we suggest considering a mesh panel door as in these examples:
Fireplace Opening: 37 3/16" W x 22" H
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.
