Project #10826 - Glass Doors for Fireplace

Customer Comments: Hello, I would like to have you folks design a fireplace door with screens for my home. The bullets below indicate width and height of the inside dimensions brick to brick where the new doors would be installed. I believe I have sent all of the requested photos and pertinent information required to design and get me a quote. See Dimensions and Details Below.

Our Comments: We have provided mockups for fireplace doors in all levels of quality and price listed from low end to high end. The amount of frame that overlaps the opening is custom. In your case, we recommend 1/2" to 1" on the top and sides. Each door is available with a draft assembly at the bottom that can be opened and closed. The draft assemblies are relatively innocuous and do not have a mesh behind them (there is no need).

Fireplace Opening: 29 5/8" W x 27 1/2" (lintel) 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.

Brookfield Fireplace Door Option #1: Brookfield Fireplace Glass Door in Vintage Iron with Clear Glass and Mesh Curtains.
Phoenix Fireplace Door Option #2: Phoenix Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black with Clear Glass and Mesh Curtains.

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.

Carolina Fireplace Door Option #3: Carolina Fireplace Glass Door in Rustic Black with Clear Glass and Mesh Curtains.
Legend Fireplace Door Option #4: Legend Fireplace Glass Door in Forged Iron with Clear Glass and Mesh Curtains.
Craftsman Glass Door Option #5: Craftsman Fireplace Door in Forged Iron with Clear Glass and Gate Mesh Backup Doors.

High End Hand Crafted Doors by Stone Manufacturing

Doors made by Stone Manufacturing cannot be burned with the doors closed during the main burn of a fire, although you can close the doors to start and end the fire.

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.
