Hi, We have an outdoor double sided wood burning fireplace that we are looking to get doors for. We would like something simple and iron/black. The inside dimensions are 42 1/2 inches wide by 35 1/2 inches tall.
Our Comments: Below are examples of doors made in materails designed specifically for use outdoors including powder coat aluminum, solid brass painted black, stainless steel painted black and zinc coated wrought iron. Each door has it's limitations, so be sure to read the descriptions carefully.
42 1/2" W x 35 1/2" H

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.
