Project #10965 - Glass Doors for Contemporary Fireplace with Ceramic Facing and TV
28" high x 41.75" opening of fireplace. Consistent at different points Brick on floor is 1.25" high. .25" recessed inward from side edge of ceramic tile and 2" recessed inward from top edge of ceramic.
Lintel outer edge sits close to vertical up from outer edge of brick on floor.
Beautiful firelpace! There are quite a few options to explore depending on your budget. Your choices will also depend on whether you need to burn a fire with the doors open or closed. The raised inner hearth does create some limitations as the frame of the door must be wide enough to overlap that edge. Hope this helps.

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
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.
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 #8D: C92 Bar and Mesh. This leaves the bottom bricks exposed as the screen must hang 1" back from the fireplace opening.

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.
