Project 10238 - Free Standing Glass Screen
Hello, I’d like to order a custom fireplace screen. #42 free standing glass screen
The fireplace is 28" high by 45 1/2" wide with a two inch trim around it. We’d like the glass to include the trim so we’d like the screen to be 30" high (from bottom of foot) and 49 1/2" wide. We need the Feet to clear 3 inches from each side. Can we have the handles 1" in from side so that it’s in the middle of the stone trim?
We’d like the following options:
Handle - square,
Foot – contemporary,
Finish – Natural iron.
Our Comments: Option #1 is an example of how your screen might look as you have specified. Unfortunately, we cannot make the screen 49 1/2" wide as a single glass sheet that wide is not safe. The widest we can make a free standing glass screen is 44". So we recommend making the 3/4" shorter on the top and sides to fit inside the opening. So the finished size would be: 44" Wide x 27 1/4" H (see option #1).
Fireplace Opening: 45 1/2" W x 28" 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.
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.
