Project #10788 - Glass Doors for Fireplace

Customer Comments: The dimensions are 36 wide by 30 high. The bottom brick is 8 '' deep and the top has 4.5'' before it hits the lip (is this the correct term?). I have attached a picture of the fireplace with the screen that doesn't fit and 2 screens she (my client) likes with doors that open out. Will look forward to hearing from you! Thanks so much!

Our Comments: We have provided mockups showing glass doors and mesh doors. There is no reason glass doors will not work on this fireplace. The Lintel, which is the lip you referred to, is only a consideration if it is less than 2" from the front of the fireplace. The brackets for the door would install directly into the 8" deep bricks. Some of the doors have pressure screws that don't even require brackets.

Fireplace Opening: 36" W x 30" 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.

About 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.

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.

Free Standing Screens

Single Panel Screen
Free Standing Fireplace Screen Option #: 1P10M Free Standing Screen in Oil Rubbed Steel with Angle Feet and Square Rod Handles. This screen has smaller feet, but cannot have doors.

Free Standing Screen Door Legs

Below is a picturing showing why the free standing screens will not work in this application. There is not enough depth for the rear legs to sit on your bottom bricks, so the screen will not be able to stand on it's own. So you need something that is attached to the bricks.

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.
