I’m looking for a fire screen.
Opening 36 wide 30 1/2 tall.
There are several ways to treat a prefabricated fireplace that is raised in the wall like yours. Free standing single panel screens are likely out of the question as they will look disproportionately tall. 3 panel screens can work if you have a fine weaved wire mesh or shiny mesh that does not allow you to see through the screen easily when the fire is not lit. Other options include glass doors and mesh panel doors. Here are examples of each of these options.
36" W x 30 1/2" H

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.
