Project #10870 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hello, we are looking for fireplace doors and baffle. Right now the opening is too large and it fills the house with smoke. We experimented and found that a 4 1/2 inch baffle does the trick and directs the smoke up the chimney. Is this something you could help us with? Thank you.
After looking further: We picked out the Brookfield Door, in Rustic Black, with the Mission window pane, mesh curtain, clear glass with no bevel and a knob pull.
Our Comments: Yes, we can make some of our fireplace doors with a wider frame at the top that will take the place of a smoke shield. We have included a couple options like this as well as some more standard models without a wide frame. We also included the Brookfield door as you have requested, with and without the baffle. Each of these doors is shown as an inside fit. We would make the frame about 1/4" smaller on the top and each side than the narrrowest dimension. The gaps would then need to be filled with mortar.
Fireplace Opening: 35 3/4" W x 35 5/8" H (approx)
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.

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.
Heavy Duty 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 and can be made to whatever size we want. So instead of adding a smoke guard, we just make the frame wider.
High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass and Steel
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.
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.
