Glass Doors for Wide Angle Corner Fireplace - Project #11401
Customer Comments: I'm interested in a two door glass in closure.
Our Comments: We recommend adding a row of bricks inside the fireplace to provide a surface on which the return side of the door to can sit. We also recommend using sliding doors in this application so the doors do not project into the room or doorway when open. After discussing the budget, we undersatand the sliding doors may not be possible, so we have included the Brookfield doors, which are the least expensive doors that we can have made for this application. The mesh curtain rod stands about 3" back from the front of the door frame, which will leave a space on the left side without mesh coverage.
Fireplace Opening: 48" W (front) x 23" W (right) x 23" H x 4" Drop (inside)
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.
Sliding Glass Doors
On the main side, the two outer panes of glass are fixed while the two inner panes slide left and right to open and close. The right side return would be a fixed pane.
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.
