Glass Doors for See Through Brick Fireplace In The Wall - Project #11268
Customer Comments: Hi, we are looking to replace our current curtain with a glass fireplace door for our gas fireplace for aesthetic purposes and also to keep pets and kids from reaching in. It's a two-sided fireplace, so we'll need two doors. We'd like something pretty plain/modern. There is a "hearth" of flagstone but it's not attached but rather held on rods so it can be slid out if a bottom overlap is needed. For the color we just want whatever is your standard black color.
Our Comments: Here are a few options to consider that should suite your needs. The hearth should not be an issue, it looks like we can overlap that as is about 3/4" to 1", which is ideal. You must always burn the glass doors open when burning gas logs, so we recommend adding gate mesh backup doors behind the glass. The glass doors will fold back 180 degrees flat up against the brick so they are out of the way while the gate mesh will protect your pets and kids.

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.
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.
