Project #10878 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Narrowest dimension fireplace opening width is 38 1/8 inches, widest is 38 1/4. Fireplace height is 28 1/8. Thinking Brookfield, legend, stiletto,Carolina. Old world bronze, Venetian bronze. Also looking for new log set with remote.
Our Comments: For stacked stone fireplace like yours, we recommend fitting the door inside the opening and filling in the gaps with mortar. This will look better than overlapping the stones since some stick out further than others. Here are examples of the doors you requested plus an additional option to consider.
Fireplace Opening: 38 1/8" W x 28 1/8" 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.

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
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.
For this application, we have chosen the Hybrid-2 from Stone Manufacturing. This door is made from solid brass and does not have a frame on the sides. Instead, they use a solid brass angle iron where the edge is towards the front. This mounts to the top and bottom and holds the hardware for the doors in place. This is a very sleek, minimal design that does not require any mortar.
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.
