Also if poss would like to see pics with "tight fitting doors - with 1/2" frame"
We recommend using a 2" wide frame on an arched door for a brick fireplace like yours. This gives you plenty of room for play with a 1" overlap on the sides. We would make the door fit under your arch, so there will be a slight gap at the top that can be filled with mortar or left as is. The tight fitting doors would be made the same way. You cannot use mesh curtains on an arched opening since the mesh would be longer in the center than the sides and there would be no way to open them. So you can only use gate mesh backup doors on an arched fireplace.

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.
