Minimal Frame Glass Doors for Marble Fireplace - Project #11154
Customer Comments: Dear Sir/ To whom it may concern, my preference would be to have an non noticeable fireplace glass door, simple, clean, minimal appearance, frameless glass doors, an inside fit or a cutback open to a door with narrow frame with minimal overlap. no mesh doors, clear glass, matte finish, Color of the frame would be similar and blend into the stone color. I am thinking about the following frames: Stiletto cutback glass door, #163 minimal 1 (round hinges), Legend elite custom fireplace glass door (* Please tell me what is the width of this frame), Hybrid-2 Bifold Fireplace glass door. Thank you very much.
Our Comments: Don't think we could have made better recommendations than the doors you chose, so we have created mockups of each of those models. Of all the models chosen, the Minimal-1 is the most minimal and comes with 3/8" thick glass, making it even more appealing. Doors show as bifold can also be made as cabinet doors.
Fireplace Opening: 41 3/4" W x 35 3/4" 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 Solid Brass
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass or Steel, depending on the finish that is desired. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel.
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.
