Project #10710 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Hello, I’ve attached photos of my fireplaces looking specifically for the following model:
Carolina bifold glass door
Full flush fit doors
Powder coated rustic black
Rugged steel handle
I’m looking for the best price you can do. Have gotten a few estimates from other companies as well. Thank you!
Our Comments: We have created a mockup of the door you requested along with several others you may wish to consider. The hidden damper is not a feature available on the Carolina door, so we included the Legend, which has that feature. We did not include any mesh curtains or gate mesh backup doors since you did not include that in your list of features, however they are available. We will send you pricing via email as we do not post pricing in this forum as it changes periodically.
Fireplace Opening: 35 3/16" W x 35 1/16" H
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.
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.
High End Hand Edge Framed Doors
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass or Steel, depending on the finish that is desired. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel.
Other High End Door - Solid Brass Trim
Measuring This Fireplace
I will need you to remeasure because the measurements you supplied are not sufficient to design this particular door. The Carolina door comes in 2 versions: 1 1/2" wide and 2” wide frames. I can see when looking closely at the tilework that there is too much variance to use the narrower 1 1/2" frame, so we must use the 2” wide frame. As you can see in the diagram below, the upper left corner has a piece of tile that angles into the opening. The subframe of the Carolina must clear that piece, or that piece will have to be cut, one or the other.
So we need the following measurements to ensure the door will fit and to determine the overall size to which it needs to be made.
W1: Largest width between any part of the tile opening. So you need to check all the way up and down.
W2: Smallest width between any part of the tile opening. As you can see, where W1 is pointing in the diagram, you need to measure from that point over to the other side.
H1: This is the smallest height anywhere around the opening. I show this arrow underneath the tile because sometimes there is a steel lintel that is actually lower than the tile opening. It does not appear to be the case with your fireplace, but looking at this angle I cannot be sure.
H2: This is the lowest height to any piece of tile around the opening (probably the same as H1 if there is no lintel)
H3: This is the highest height to any piece of tile that needs to be covered. As you can see where H3 is pointing, there is a gap. So you need to find the highest point to any gap that needs to be covered.
