Project #10473 - Glass Doors for Arched See Through Fireplace
The gas logs are sooting up the room and releasing carbon monoxide. The intent is to close off the fireplace on one side with glass doors to eliminate the issue.
Closing off the fireplace with a gas log is not a viable solution as the door then becomes the back side of the fireplace, which is not how they are intended to be used. Read more about this here: Glass Doors for See Through Fireplaces. With gas logs, you cannot burn the fire with the doors closed based on the gas log manufacturers operation manual. So if you install glass doors, you must burn them with the doors open, which will not solve your problem. We actually suggest changing your gas logs to ventless gas logs and burning them with the damper and glass doors open as the most viable solution. Each Option below is shown with a 30" Ventless See-Thru Gas Log Set.

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.
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.
