Project #10623 - Glass Doors for Fireplace

Customer Comments: Our lakehouse has the old chain curtains that are hard to use for our wood fireplace Looking for a screen for protection and make it look more modern farmhouse. But it’s just a lakehouse. Not looking for uber expensive like I would use in my main house. Thx

Our Comments: We recommend either a free standing single panel screen or an attached mesh door. The mesh doors are going to keep sparks from coming out onto the floor. The free standing screen will need to set away from the fireplace about 3" if you want to have feet on the back side. If you do not have feet on the back, the screen can go flush to the fireplace. The advantge of having feet on the back is that when you move it away from the fireplace it will stand on it's own. Otherwise, it will need to lean against something.

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.

Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes

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.
