Custom Fireplace Glass Doors - Project #11189
Customer Comments: Our home is currently undergoing a remodel. We're looking for a budget friendly simple twin or single glass fireplace door with a black, dark brown or brushed nickel frame. We like the look of the Hearth Craft Reflective & Hearth Craft. Inside we we will use a 21” glass pan system burner with 1/2" fire glass (color TBD but considering clear, reflective cooper or reflective blue lagoon). We're looking forward to your mockup.
Our Comments: The Hearthcraft doors you mentioned are not available for prefab fireplaces. Also, when burning gas in a fireplace, you cannot burn the fire with the doors closed, so although a single pane of glass does have a very distinctive look, it is not practical to be open. Twin doors will open rather wide as well, so we recommend you consider either bifolding or sliding doors. Below are examples of twin, bifold and sliding doors.
Fireplace Opening: 41 5/16" W x 22 5/16" 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.
Finish Samples: Design Specialties Finishes | Stone Manufacturing Finishes | Hearth Creations Finishes
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.
High End Hand Crafted Sliding Door
The Sliding Door from Stone Manufacturing is our most recommended option for fireplaces like this when burning glass crystals. The left and right outermost glass panes are fixed and the two inner panes slide to the left and right to open and close.
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.
