Hello, I have a large living room fireplace 41.5” x 71” (h x w) and am in need of a custom screen. I have attached the requested pictures as listed on your website. As for design, we’ll likely remodel the entire fireplace in a couple of years, so we can keep the screen simple yet functional. Not sure if safety if factored into the type of screen, but we have two infants that will soon enough be mobile.
There are many options for how to treat a large fireplace like yours, so we just created a few mockups to show some of the concepts. Finishes and styles were chosen arbitrarily since you plan on remodeling the fireplace and we do not know what direction you will go. So these ideas are meant to stimulate you in regards to the verious types of screens to consider rather than the style or finish.
71" W x 41 1/2" 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.
