Project #10803 - Glass Doors for Fireplace with Ledge
Customer Comments: No Comments
Our Comments: Here are several doors that work well with a fireplace that has a ledge. These are all designed to fit under the ledge and overlap the sides with the exception of the Option #1, which has no frame on the sides.
Fitting Doors Under a Ledge: The height of the door will be made 1/8" to 3/16" shorter than the smallest height from the hearth to the bottom of the lintel (the steel bar at the underside of the ledge). It is imperative that you measure accurately to find the lowest and tallest height across the opening. Option #1 & #2 are made to a 1/32" tolerance, so they will be made to within 1/8" of the lowest height. All of the other options are made to +- 1/8" tolerance, so we must make those doors at least 3/16" lower than the lowest height to ensure there is room for play to fit under the ledge.
Fireplace Opening: 36 1/4" W x 24 1/2" H
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.
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.
