Project #10549 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: We just want glass doors, black aluminum frame...smoked glass is fine. The purpose is really just a little draft control. We had glass doors that came with the house (circa 2005) and they are not operating well- always popping out of the frame when trying to slide them open.
We already have mesh screen but not sure how that works with new glass doors...do the glass door units come with mesh screens built in so we need to demo out the current screen? We have a natural gas-fed flute and the fireplace is wood burning. We do not burn the fire with the glass doors closed.
HOWEVER WE WOULD LIKE TO CONVERT IT AWAY FROM WOODBURNING TO GLASS CHIPS OR THOSE SPHERES. WE NEED YOUR THOUGHTS ON WHAT WE NEED TO DO to accomplish THAT.
Our Comments: We have created some mockups of the doors and options you requested. We also added some other doors that better compliment the decor in your room just so you can see the potential and others can see them as well.
Fireplace Opening: Not Supplied
The aluminum doors are light weight and fit inside the opening with a 1/8" to 1/4" gap around all 4 sides. These are the least expensive and custom doors.
These doors do not have a frame on the sides and provide a much cleaner look. They have a solid metal track that mounts to the top and bottom of the fireplace opening. This door mechanism is extremely heavy duty in construction.
Option #2: Hybrid 2 Custom Fireplace Door in Flat Black with Fireball Spheres.
Option #2B: Hybrid 2 Custom Fireplace Door in Flat Black with Gold Reflective Glass Burning (doors must be open when burning glass).
Luxurious Fireplace Doors
These luxurious fireplace doors complement the decor in this room. They are hand made to perfection by highly skilled craftsman and are very pricey.
Option #3: WI-DF1G Scroll Wrought Iron Fireplace Door with Scroll Pattern in Dark Bronze. See Wrought Iron Finish Options
Option #4: EC-HH01 Solid Brass Scroll Fireplace Door in Statuary Bronze.
