3-Fold Fireplace Screens
3-Fold Fireplace Screens
You may want to consider a bowed screen for this application as they seem to work best for small fireplaces that are taller than wide. Any of the 3 fold screens can also be made as bowed screens.
3-Fold Fireplace Screen with Doors
3-fold screens with doors are a unique alternative. Unfortunately, most of them on the market will tip over when you open the doors. To overcome this, we either add legs to the front panel or mounting brackets to bolt the side panels to the floor. The example below shows the leg option.
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.
