Project 10237 - Glass Doors For Ledger Stone Fireplace
The following photos are the cover we are interested in (Bungalow Stock Door), full fireplace, bottom left corner inside, upper left corner inside, exact measurement width, exact measurement height. Thanks!
Our Comments: The Bungalow does not come in a stock size that fits your fireplace opening, so we would need to custom make that door to fit. Although we can do an overlap fit on your fireplace, the irregularities in the stone will not allow the frame to fit very flush against the fireplace, so there will be gaps as much as 1" deep in places between the frame and the stones. A wider frame like the Bungalow will help hide those gaps, but you may wish to consider a more custom alternative, which is to fit the door inside the opening and fill the gaps with mortar. We have provided examples of both applications, although it is not possible to show the gaps on the outside fit. To get a better idea of how the gaps will be, just put a straight edge up against the fireplace (see fig #2 below).
Fireplace Opening: 44 3/8" W x 24 3/8" H (approximate)
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.
This page was created as part of our Free Fireplace Door Design service. Anyone who has a fireplace and is considering glass doors can take advantage of this program. All you have to do is email us some pictures of your fireplace and we will create digital mock-ups showing you how various fireplace doors will look on your fireplace. This is hands down the best way to shop for fireplace doors. Click Here to Begin Your Own Project!
