Our Comments: Here are some of the most affordable ways to treat a fireplace that is raised in the wall. Options include free standing screens, attached curtain mesh screens, screen doors and glass doors.

Fireplace Opening: 47 1/2" W x 41 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.

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.

Free Standing Screens

Single Panel Screen
Solid Brass Fireplace Screen Option #3: 1P30M Single Panel Fireplace Screen with Angled Feet and Square Handles. The flat feet can have 2" to 3" projection. The rear feet have leveling screws and are set in at least 6" from the sides so the screen can stand on it's own.
Frame Screen
Fireplace Frame Screen Option #4: CFR85 Fireplace 4-Sided Mesh Curtain Frame Screen in Flat Black.
Frame Screen
Fireplace Frame Screen Option #5: C92-F92 Bar & Mesh in Flat Black with Matching F92 Bottom Bar. The bottom bar is optional, but we recommend it for this application to prevent logs and large embers from rolling out of the fireplace.

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.
