I would like help with an arched River Rock 100 yr old fireplace I would like door ideas and a mesh spark pull screen Problem I see is River rocks drop below opening I use a stand alone screen but sparks still escape and can’t leave the room for long if using this fireplace!
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
A damper has not been installed yet
Nothing will block sparks better than a glass door with wire mesh backup doors. With that said, we have also included some oversized fireplace screens that may do a better job than your current screen. The glass doors require a little work on your part to create a template, install them and then mortar in the gaps. We can walk you through that process.
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.
