Glass Doors for Prefab Fireplace with Marble Tiles - Project #11400
Customer Comments: Hello, I would like a glass door. Please send me what designs you have and what the price is.
Our Comments: Due to the way the marble has been installed around your prefabricated fireplace, the options for glass doors that can be installed are limited. In order to prevent the fireplace from overheating, gaps to allow air to flow into the fireplace must be provided. The mockups below represent 3 different categories of doors that can be made this way.
Fireplace Opening: 42" W x 20 1/2" H
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
This is the least expensive option. The aluminum door below will have wider gaps between the outer glass panes and the aluminum frame on the sides. There are air slots built-in to the inside of the frame to allow proper airflow into the fireplace.
Medium Range Steel Doors
Steel doors are more heavy duty and expensive than aluminum. These doors have a 2" wide frame with 1/4" spacers on the back to allow airflow into the fireplace. The frame is made from 3/16" thick solid steel.
High End Sliding Doors
Sliding doors are great for fireplaces like this where the opening is raised above the ground. 2 fixed panes of glass on the right and left sides and 2 sliding panes in the center so they do not stick out when open. This door has s 2" wide frame with 1/4" spacers on the back for airflow. Excellent for gas logs, but not recommended for wood burning.
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.
