Mesh Doors for Raised Fireplace - Project #11448
Customer Comments: Hello I'm interested in designing screen doors or curtains for my gas fireplace opening. The design that I'm looking for is one where the screens doors or curtains are on a metal frame on all four sides. The color should be flat black. Please note that the fireplace is a wood burning fireplace that was converted by using a gas insert.
Our Comments: We have several manufacturers that can make what you are asking for from various materials and quality. Here are some examples.

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 Steel Doors
These doors are hand crafted using superior materials including solid brass latches for superior action and durability. They also have a Pseudo Clearview option with a less noticeable center frame and fine weave mesh to maximize the view of the fire.
DXF Laser Cut Patterns (NEW)
These unique bifold doors feature two sets of doors. The outer doors have a laser cut patter without any mesh. There is a second single panel mesh door behind the decorative doors, so you can open the decorative pattern and have a full view of the fire, or keep them closed for ambiance. There are many different patterns to choose from. If you like this concept, we can share other patterns.
This frame screen has a 2" wide solid steel frame with sliding mesh curtains
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.
