Project #10747 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Good morning! We have an older zero clearance fireplace kit. We would like to purchase doors for it. Preferably in black. We are remodeling this room, so the view is not ideal. :) Opening is 20.5 x 38 inches. I look forward to speaking with someone!
Our Comments: We recommend either the Brookfield ZC or Legend ZC. Both of these doors will overlap the black metal opening. The Brookfield can overlap up to 3/4" while the Legend can be made to overlap any amount. The most finished look would be with the Legend as it can be made to come right close to the stone and you can fill the remaining gap with mortar as shown in Option #2. We have included measuring instructions for the Legend Door. To measure for the Brookfield we only need H1 and W1
Fireplace Opening: 38" W x 20 1/2" 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.

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.
