Looking for something simple, plain, with a small frame. Inset and not thick depth wise Must have mesh doors.
Our Comments: We have provided several examples of simple doors that are popular on ledger stone. The Stiletto is made of aluminum and is less expensive. The Legend is laser cut from 3/16" solid steel and is more heavy duty. The Madrid is far from what you asked for, but it seems to be very popular on fireplaces like yours, so we included it. THe Madrid is hand forged steel. We would make any of these doors with a 1/4" gap around the top and each side to fit inside the opening comfortably. The gap would then be filled with mortar. As far as the depth, each of these doors has a subframe that extends back into the opening about 1 1/2". This will make it easier to apply the mortar and adds to the stability/rigidity of the door frame.
Fireplace Opening: 436" W x 31" 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.
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.
