Glass Doors for Black Granite Fireplace - Project #11145
Customer Comments: I would like bi fold glass doors with black trim. The opening is 22" h and 42" wide. I'm not worried about the decor match per se, as long as it goes with the black.
Our Comments: Glass doors for prefab fireplaces must be designed to allow air to flow into the fireplace in strategic locations in order to prevent the fireplace from overheating. Some doors must fit inside the opening while others can overlap. Overlap fitting doors allow airflow by having 1/4" spacers on the back of the frame, hidden vents inside the frame or an air vent built into the frame. We are presenting options representing each of these types of doors in a variety of price ranges.
Fireplace Opening: 42" W x 22" 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.

Affordable 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 Doors
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans and are very high end and refined using only the highest quality materials.
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.
