Project #10313 - Glass Doors for Raised Hearth
Customer Comments: Hello, I'm requesting help in selecting and purchasing fireplace glass doors.I am including the requested photographs. My fireplace box is metal with firebrick floor. Originally it had a brick face and hearth. We have 8' ceilings and the brick went to the top. I have just finished installing stacked stone on the face and travertine pavers to the hearth seating area. This leaves the firebox floor approximately 2" down from the top of the pavers. The stacked stone and pavers do not extend into the fireplace opening. The fireplace glass doors will need to sit on top of a bottom rail that will lift it level with the pavers. The opening width is 38 1/2" at the top and 38 3/4" at the bottom. From the top of the pavers, the height is 23 5/8" on the sides and 23 1/2" in the middle to where it meets the lintel.
I would like to see the #1 Stiletto Zero Clearance door mock up. My selections are as follows:
1. Frame Size - Door size 60-70 UI
2. Powder Coat - Rustic Black
3. Glass color - Black Glass
4. Mesh - Black Mesh Curtains
5. Door Design - Standard Doors
Our Comments: We have created the mock up you requested and added a couple more that are commonly used with a fireplace like yours so that you and others can see how they look.
Fireplace Opening: 38 1/2" W x 25 3/8" 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.
