Hello - I'm interested in glass doors for my fireplace. Photos are below. It was built in 1956 with the house. We purchased the home one year ago. I am looking to increase the efficiency by controlling air flow to burn a longer fire. I have an excellent draft and burn a very hot fire but have to feed it every two hours or so. I also like the idea of being able to close the doors and "seal" the draft when not in use. We don't burn a daily fire just as a supplement when it gets extra cold and for ambiance, etc.
The opening measurements are 33" horizontal and 29" from the hearth extension to the steel lintel.
I'd be interested in the stock Savannah door in Vintage Iron with a mesh curtain if a stock door would fit (36x31.5?). If not I like the Savannah or the Phoenix in the custom selections.
Our Comments: It looks like the Stock size Savannah door model SA-40315 might fit, but it is very close, actually right at the limit. So if your fireplace is 28 15/16" to the lintel, it will not go in under the lintel unless the lintel is more than 7/8" back from the face of the stone. The door has a sub-frame that is 29” tall and recesses 7/8” into the fireplace, hence the fit limitation. So you will need to double check this. If we were to custom make the door, we would make it 36" W x 31" tall instead of 31 1/2" just to ensure a good fit. I have created mock-ups of both doors for you.

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.
These doors are pieced together from anodized aluminum extrusions. This material is less expensive than steel or sold brass, yet the finish holds up well to heat. These are the most affordable good quality custom doors.
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.
