Project #10478 - Glass Doors for Fireplace

Customer Comments: Hello, Because of the lack of doors on our masonry fireplace, we have the smoking issues often described. We'd like to know your recommendations for installing doors on both sides. The fireplace openings measure 22" x 34". Thanks

Our Comments: For a good seal on a rock fireplace, we recommend fitting the doors inside the opening and filing the gaps with mortar. However, your stones are relatively flat, so an outside fitting door can work but will not seal as well. We have created examples of outside fitting doors on side 1 and some inside fitting doors on side 2 of your fireplace. The overlap doors would be made with wider frames than the inside fitting doors.

Fireplace Opening: 34" W x 22" 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.
