Project #10728 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Hello, I would like to order a door for my fireplace, and I really like your website. Not sure where to start, and what options are available for our fireplace, but we are thinking about minimalistic design with clear glass. I attached pictures, hope it will help. Our fireplace is 34.5 by 29 inches. Happy Thanksgiving!
34 1/2" W x 29" 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.
Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes
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.
Option #1: Stiletto Cutback Fireplace Glass Door
in Rustic Black with Single Gate Mesh Backup Door. This door is shown as an inside fit with mortar filling the gaps between the frame and the bricks. This is the least expensive way to achieve the look of a very narrow framed door that is flush with the fireplace.
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.
High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass
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.
Option #4: HYBRID-2 Bifold Fireplace Glass Door
in Pewter. This door has no frame on the sides. Shown with Matching MT-6-EN Fireplace Tools.
Option #5: DF1G Bifold Fireplace Door
with Black Frame and Solid Brass Doors with Rivets in Satin Brass. Shown with Matching CT6H Fireplace Tools.
Measuring for Stiletto Cutback Inside Fit
Measuring this way will leave a gap around the door frame the width of the current mortar joints ensuring that it will fit inside the opening. When installed, the gap will need to be filled with mortar and will end up creating a mortar joint that is consistent with the rest of the bricks, so it will look like the door was made when the fireplace was built.
W – Measure the width on the outside of the vertical bricks across the top of the opening. Do NOT include the mortar joints, just measure from brick to brick:
HL – Measure the left height from the hearth to the top of the left brick. Do NOT include the mortar joint above the top brick:
HR – Measure the right height the same way you measure the left height:

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.
