Project 10293 - Glass Doors for Traditional Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hi, folks. Here are the photos for our fairly oversized fireplace that we'd like to have fitted for a Stilleto-style door, with mesh screens. The dimensions are: 56.5w x 34.5H and the opening only is 50"W x 31"H. Thank you!
Our Comments: Due to the irregularities in the fireplace opening, the Stiletto door will only work as an inside fit and will require the gap to be filled with mortar. Although a very narrow frame like the Stiletto is often desired, with a fireplace opening as large as yours a wider frame may be more appropriate and will allow you to overlap the opening to hide the irregularities. We have created examples of both applications.
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.
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.
