Project 10252 - Glass Doors for Rock Fireplace
Customer Comments: The opening on our fireplace is 38" x 23.5". Given the stone is not straight on the sides it appears the Bungalow style in the Copper Vein color, bet we are open to suggestions. We believe we would like the twin gate mesh doors and the bronze glass would look good, but again open to suggestions.
Our Comments: If we do the Bungalow door we would do it as an outside fit since the frame is rather wide. This will leave some large gaps between the frame and the stones, but it appears the stones are on a relatively similar plane, so it will look OK from most angles. We have also supplied a couple versions of the Legend Tuscany door as an inside fit with mortar filling the gaps.
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.
