Glass Doors for Large White Brick Fireplace - Project #11148
Customer Comments: Hello! We would like to get fireplace glass door insert to enable us to better see the fire and to stop the wind from coming in when we aren't using the fire.
Our Comments: Here are some options to consider that can be made to fit your large fireplace dimensions. All but the last option can be burned with the doors closed so you have a perfect view of the fire. They can be made with mesh curtains or gate mesh backup doors for times when you want to open the doors and enjoy the fire. The mesh curtains are probably most appropriate option as you can slide them open when you close the doors for better fire viewing. Most of the doors can be made in any of the finishes shown as well as other finishes here.
Fireplace Opening: 48 1/4" W x 26 11/16" H

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 Wrought Iron/Steel Doors
Hand crafted doors take on a more rugged natural look for those who appreciate craftsmanship tasteful details.
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.
