Project #10933 - Glass Doors for Fireplace
Customer Comments: Hello, We just remodeled our downstairs and the only item left to finish is the fireplace…our contractor will be installing "Pennsylvania Laurel Cavern Ledge" from Stonecraft over our existing red brick fireplace, and we will then we will need to install a new fireplace door: The existing fireplace opening size is 34.5" wide by 24.5" high. We would like the new fireplace door to have glass bi-fold doors with gate mesh doors behind. I do not like the aluminum doors, and while I like the forged steel they are a bit too expensive...therefore, it seems steel doors might suit us best. Would you be able to provide some mockups? Let me know if you need any additional information. Thank you
Our Comments: We created some mockups using the Stonecraft ledger stone to help simulate the finished look. Hope these help.
Fireplace Opening: 34 1/2" W x 24 1/2" 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.

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.
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.
