Project #10674 - Glass Doors for Fireplace

Customer Comments: Hello Hansen Design services. Attached are some photos of our living room. We are interested in fireplace doors and screen for our fireplace. If the doors and screen could be quiet and unobtrusive that would be wonderful. That would also apply to how they would look when the doors were open-perhaps folding door would be less noticeable? Fireplace is 39" wide in box, 30" tall in box, 24" deep in box.

Our Comments: We have created several mockups showing a variety of doors that will work in your application. Each mockup is shown as an inside fit, which will require mortar to fill the gaps between the frame and the stone.

Fireplace Opening: 39" W x 30" 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.
