Glass Doors for Stepped Fireplace - Project #11398
Customer Comments: This is our fireplace. There is a shelf on the right side about 9 1/4 wide by 17 7/8 tall. I believe it may have been originally meant for cooking food or boiling water. We would like to have folding glass doors on the main portion of the fireplace which is 28 7/8 tall by 31 3/4 wide. On the right where the lip is we would like to have a small metal door that could be opened and closed or removed and replaced. So if anyone ever wanted to use the fireplace for cooking, they could do so. Additionally, we are having a new flue put in. The lever to the new floe will be on the right wall just inside the fireplace close to the top. I can send pics of the lever next week once it is installed if needed. We wanted to get a rustic black frame with a right side rustic black door or hatch. Please let me know if this is possible for you to do. Thank you.
Our Comments: Below is the basic concept of how we would normally treat this type of fireplace using two glass doors.

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.
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.
