Glass Doors for Arched Stone Fireplace - Project #11371
Customer Comments: Legend PLAIN Arch #62Custom Fireplace Glass Doors, standard, full view twin doors, BLACK MESH CURTAINS OR Buckingham Custom Arch Custom Fireplace Glass Doors (Masonry Only) #64 WITH BLACK MESH CURTAINS.
Our Comments: Here are mockups of the two doors you requested with a couple more additions. These would be made with a slightly wider 2" to 2 1/2" wide frame in order to cover the uneven edges of the stone. Adding mesh curtains to an arched door is not possible because there would be no way to open them since the mesh would be longer in the middle than at the sides. It may be possible to install a mesh curtain separately behind the opening if there is a rectangular space behind your stone. We included an example of how that works.
Fireplace Opening: 34" W x 27" H (sides) x 33" H (center)
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
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.
High End Hand Crafted Solid Brass
These doors are hand crafted by skilled artisans from Solid Brass or Steel, depending on the finish that is desired. Very high end, and very refined. Items made from solid brass come in a wide variety of hand crafted patinas and other finishes. Satin Nickel finishes done on solid brass are the finest quality and will not rust like plated steel.
Here's how mesh curtains would look when installed separately behind the stone. There must be a rectangular area behind the stone in order to do this. Please provide a picture taken from inside the fireplace looking up from behind the stone so we can see if it is possible to install the curtains (see example below).
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.
