Project 10256 - Glass Doors for Fireplace Remodel

Customer Comments: Hello, Was looking for some help with our fireplace doors. We bought a house that has a prefabricated fireplace. We are planning on updating the entire fireplace. We are removing tile and putting stone around the opening. We want to replace the doors. As you can see in the picture there is a big gap between the doors and the tile that we do not want to have when we replace the tile with stone. This fireplace is a double sided fireplace. We are updating one side at a time since the other side will be a bigger project. Each glass door measures at 17 3/4 inch wide and 21 3/4 inch in height. The total measurements with the frame it is 36 inch wide and 23 height. There is no information about the insert on the inside of the fireplace. Thank you

Our Comments: We cannot cover up those slots that are on the sides of the current doors, they are there to allow air to flow into passageways that keep the fireplace cool. We can design most of our steel fireplace doors with vent covers on each side that are covered with a flat wire mesh. We have created a couple examples below showing how these would look on your current tile fireplace as well as on a remodeled version with stone.

Fireplace Opening: 36" W x 23" 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.

Glass Door Closeup Pictures

We have included these pictures so you can see the difference in detail of the frames, handles and hinges. The Legend door is very plain whereas the Craftsman door has hand hammered details on the edges along with special hand crafted hinges and handles. These details are hard to see in the mockups.

Door #1 - Craftsman in Forged Iron
Door #2 - Carolina Window Pane in Rustic Black

Measuring Diagram

We would prefer if you can remove the existing door and the top and bottom tracks that hold the door in and then email us another closeup picture of the opening so we can varify everything. The “?” with the arrow pointing to a location where we cannot see how the inside if the fireplace begins. This is important for us to know exactly how to construct the portion that covers the vent holes and transitions to the actual door frame where the hinges will be located.

Below is the measuring diagram and description of the measurements we need.

Fig #4 - This shows how the black metal of the fireplace might look. The fireplace doors must overlap the black metal and then the stone should be applied.

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.
