Project #10894 - Minimal Firelace Doors with Narrow Frames

Customer Comments: Hello. I am interested in ordering a cut-back fit Stiletto door for my fireplace and would like information and/or assistance with the ordering process. The fireplace was recently remodeled with stone tiles and the opening measures 30-3/16" wide and 21-1/8" tall. The pictures I took do not exactly follow the examples given on your site, but I think they cover the necessary information and I'm hoping you will have enough information from these pictures to help me order the frame and tell me how to install it. (Looking at the example video, I think I need to drill directly into the brick, which is not how it was done in the video, and I want to make sure that is okay). Thank you for your time and assistance.

Our Comments: The Stiletto Cutback door works best when the opening is perfectly square within 1/16". If your tile was done with that accuracy, it is an excellent choice. If there is more variation than 1/16", you will want to consider other alternatives. We have created mockups of such doors below including the Stiletto Cutback.

Fireplace Opening: 30 1/16" W x 21 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.

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.

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.

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.
