Screen For In The Wall Gas Fireplace - Project #11174
Customer Comments: I've been in Las Vegas for 5 years now and never finished my fireplace. Hoping you can give me some ideas. FP is 43" w x 24" h I think I'm looking for something pretty simple. Since I have only a gas log, I kind of don't want any doors on it at all. Is it possible just to get it framed? Or is it required to have some kind of door on it? I've gone five years now with no issues that I know of about heat or cold, but maybe that's what the doors are for? Thanks for your help.
Our Comments: Here are a few ideas on how to frame your fireplace opening with some sort of screen. There are slots at the bottom of the opening that must not be covered, so we have incorporated slots into any of the designs that attach directly to the fireplace.
Fireplace Opening: 43" W x 24" 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.

Mesh Curtain Frame Screens
If you just want a frame around the opening for a finished look, a frame screen may be the ideal solution. The 2" wide frame trims the opening while the mesh curtains help hide some of the black metal on the sides. These can also be made without the mesh curtains as shown in one of the options.
Solid Brass Castings
Use your imagination to create the perfect fireplace screen with these solid brass castings from Stone Manufacturing. Compliment architectural details in the mantel or other furnishings in our home, or simply create your own unique look. Available in a wide variety of finishes.
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.
