Project #10761 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Looking for input on options and costs. Height 23 1/4". Width 31" (at it's narrowest point). Thank you.
Inside Fitting Doors: The most common way to treat stone fireplaces is by fitting the door inside and then filling the gaps between the stones mortar. In your case, it appears that the gaps at the bottom are much wider than the center, which may create too much open space for an inside fit to look good. If the stones in the center can be chiseled back some, that will create a much smaller gap at the bottom. It also may be that the angle from which your picture was taken has distorted this and the gap may be less than what we have shown.
Outside Fitting Doors: Outside fitting doors may be more appropriate for your fireplace. These would be made an extra wide frame to cover the minimum and maximum width of the stone opening. Depending on how rough the stones are projecting out from the front, you may want to fill the gaps between the back of the frame and the stones with mortar.
Fireplace Opening: 31" W x 23 1/4" 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.
