Mesh Curtain Screens
For fireplaces this large we use a curtain screen that has a rigid I-Beam Track with rollers rather than a traditional curtain rod that will sag under the weight of the mesh. Because the bed of ashes tends to build up and spill onto the hearth, we recommend adding a 4" wide bottom bar to keep them at bay. This also allows us to make the mesh 3" sorter so that it does not get caught up and drag through the ashes.

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.
