hi, I am looking for a fireplace screen door for this fireplace. At this point I dont know if I can take the metal piece off so I am giving measurements for both. We definitely need a screen door, not sure if a glass door is necessary - what are the options for something that I can possibly install myself? We are located in Brooklyn NY (11231) . The opening is 20Wx28H and the metal frame is 32Wx34H (Approx)
We have several suggestions for this awesome fireplace. You can do an attached screen door, free standing screen door, glass doors with screens behind the glass or some type of free standing screen. We have created examples of each of these options. There are many finishes and additional details that can be added to each of these.

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.
A: Opening width
B: Opening Height
C: Left Side – How far from the left does the curve start at the top side
D: Left Side – How far from the top does the curve start on the left side

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.
