Customer Comments: See Customer Comments Below
Our Comments: Here are some options based on the doors you liked from the projects you listed. The doors with wider frames will not work as an inside fit as they will shrink the opening too much, which is contrary to your desire. We have modified those designs to preserve the opening size. The wider frames will help cover gaps between the stones as the doors overlap. If you want a better seal, you can fill this gaps with mortar behind the frame after the doors are installed. We chose the two doors fitting inside the opening because have very narrow frames which will minimize how much the opening shrinks. The fireplace dropping down inside will not impact the installation of these doors.
Fireplace Opening: 39" W x 24 1/4" H

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 Wrought Iron/Steel Doors
Hand crafted doors take on a more rugged natural look for those who appreciate craftsmanship tasteful details.
We are interested in getting a fireplace door for our fireplace.which is an original Brick fire place that has been refaced with stacked stone and a raised hearth level. It will be only wood burning as there is no gas supply at the fireplace.
We are interested in glass doors with mesh curtains for the fireplace. My wife likes the look of projects 11071 opt 3 and 11295 opt 4 but we do want to have the opening as large as possible based on the front of the fireplace similar to project 10333. I will probably need to be a inside fit but the drop off from the hearth does complicate determining the size needed.
Width ranges from 39" to 39 1/2" depending on the stacked stone edge
Height is more consistent and is between 21 1/4" to 21 1/2"
The hearth (gray stone) is about 1" edge to the face of the stacked stone after that I drops down 3 1/2" to the base of the fireplace floor
The room is approximately 24ft x 21ft with 14ft ceiling
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.
