Project 10230 - Custom Fireplace Doors Zero Clearance Fireplace
Customer Comments: Thank you for offering this special design service. Opening is 21 5/8" high X 41 15/16" wide. We like the looks of your Project #s 10216 & 10207. Door styles #1, 8, 11, 28, 29 in Rustic Black, Ancient Age, Dark Pewter.
Our Comments: Because you have a Zero Clearance fireplace and the tile covers the metal box right up to the opening, we must do an inside fit door. Of the doors you chose, the only model that can be installed on a prefabricated fireplace is the Stiletto. There are two other doors that will work as well, the Silhouette and the Shadow, so we have created examples of them as well. The Shadow has a profile like a picture frame shaped very much like your mantel, so we think it is an excellent choice. The Silhouette is a simple bullnose frame and the Stiletto is a boxy frame. All 3 are narrow frames and will look great, so you cannot go wrong whichever way you go here (see ZC Door Profiles at bottom of page).
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.
