Project #10828 - Glass Doors for Fireplace

Customer Comments: Good morning. I am looking for doors that the frame doesn't take up too much space. Looking for silver/nickel type finish. The width is 32.5". The height is 24". Haven't been able to find something we like because most of the overall measurements are too big. Thanks in advance.

Our Comments: We can certainly help you find the perfect doors for your fireplace. With stacked stone like yours, you may want to fit the doors inside the opening and fill the gaps between the stone and the frame with mortar for the most finished look. An overlap fit may work depending on how irregular the stones are, but you would certainly have gaps around the frame. We have created mockups of doors that are the most appropriate for both installations.

Fireplace Opening: 32 1/2" W x 24" 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.

Before
Before:

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.

Stiletto

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.

Legend

High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass

These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass or Steel, depending on the finish that is desired. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel.

Important Note: These doors cannot be burned with the doors closed except during startup and die down of 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.
