Project #10659 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hi, I am looking for some affordable fireplace doors. I saw that you guys had aluminum doors that were cheaper but i dont think any of the stock ones will fit so it would probably require customs ones. I have attached some pictures. The square opening is roughly 30"L x 19"H. There is also a black metal like material around the opening. Not sure if that is paintable or not or if i can cover it with perhaps a larger door.
Our Comments: There are 2 ways to treat this fireplace. Replace the existing doors with a new frame that mounts inside the opening or have a frame made to cover the entire black metal face. Both must be custom made. The first is the most affordable. Here are examples of both options:
Fireplace Opening: 30" W x 19" 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.

Low End Aluminum Doors
Aluminum is an excellent material for fireplace doors because it does not rust and can handle high temperatures when treated with powder coated finishes. It is also the most affordable.
Medium Range Steel Doors
Steel doors are more substantial than the less expensive aluminum doors. They are heavy duty and rugged and are more customizable because the frames are laser cut.
Medium Range Doors with Louvers
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.
