I have two corner fireplaces that we are getting ventless gas log sets for, and need doors for each. We will choose the same screen for both, so have just included photos for the main one in this email. As you'll see, we have a modern home so are looking for a frame that is simple and clean, probably black or possibly a brushed, non-shiny brass. Probably glass, but would like to see a mesh curtain option as well, please.
Measurements are: Fireplace 1 (photos attached): width: 50" x depth: 20.5" x height: 29"
Fireplace 2 (no photos): width: 42.5" x depth: 20.5" x height: 29"
We have created several ways of treating this fireplace. The post in the corner poses an issue with most fireplace doors. Some doors will need to overlap the bricks to avoid the post and a few can fit under the bricks and still avoid the post.
Left Side: 50" W x 29" H
Right Side: 20 1/2" W x 29" H
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.
