Project #10984 - Glass Doors and Mesh Doors for Brick Fireplace
Hello, I am interested in the Brookfield, Savannah and Stiletto designs. I lean toward mesh doors, but would still be interested in seeing a glass door mock up. We would need child safety clips as well. I believe the opening is 25.5" H x 41" W.
We have created examples of each of the doors you requested with both glass and mesh. You cannot burn gas logs with glass doors closed, so we added mesh doors behind the glass so there is still protection when burned with the glass open. You can have twin mesh doors or a single large mesh door, so we have shown both of these as well. We also added a bonus door called the MET with a new gas burning wrought iron sculpture and glass chips, which really looks sleek and modern. Because the brick is irregular, the Stiletto door would need to fit inside the opening and the gaps around the bricks would need to be filled with mortar as shown.
41" W x 25 1/2" H (approximate)
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.
Option #4: MET Single Mesh Fireplace Door in Gloss Black with Rustic Black Hidden Frame. Shown with our exclusive Wrought Iron Burning Twigs Sculpture and Caribbean Blue Reflective Glass Chips for an intriguing modern look.
How To Measure
Because the bricks are irregular we need to know the minimum and maximum width and height of the opening. Keep in mind that if you want the frame to cover the chips in the bricks we need to find the largest width that will do that and the smallest width between the bricks as well. The smallest height should be measured from the hearth to the bottom of the lintel, which is the steel bar beneath the top bricks. The largest height would be measured from the hearth to the highest point in the bricks where you wish to cover any defects or chips.

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.
