Project #10840 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Comment: Hi, We are interested in a fireplace screen very much like this one (see example below). Our fireplace opening is 41" wide by 27" high. Could you give me a rough idea of what it might cost?
The screen you have referenced is pictured below. This screen would be made to fit inside your opening leaving 1/4" to 1/2" gap that you would need to be filled with mortar.
41" W x 27" 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.
Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes
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.
Option #1A: Stone Manufacturing DF1M Solid Brass Fireplace Mesh Screen Door
with Hand Hammered Distressed Frame and Square Rod Handles in Satin Nickel.
Option #1B: Stone Manufacturing DF1M Solid Brass Fireplace Mesh Screen Door
with Hand Hammered Distressed Frame and Square Rod Handles in Satin Brass. Shown with T1-Revere Solid Brass Fire Set in Satin Brass.
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
This door is made from 3/16" thick solid steel and is laser cut then powder coated. The Candlelight brass finish is difficult to replicate but is in between a brass and antique brass finish. It is a semi-glossy finish. We can provide a sample if necessary.
Option #3: Design Specialties Legend Steel Mesh Screen Door
in Candlelight Brass. This door can be made with Night Shields that slip in behind the mesh.
Finish Options for Stone Manufacturing
Fig #1 - This is the example that was supplied. The handles on this door are no longer available, so we used square rod handles instead.
Fig #2 - Closeup
Fig #3 - Lintel. This shows the lintel drops down about 1/2" from the top stones and is recessed about 1 1/2".
Fig #4 - Bottom where height measurement was taken. This shows how the hearth inside is lower than the hearth outside.
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.
