Glass Doors for Rough Stone Fireplace - Project #11501

Customer Comments: Hello, We recently bought a house built in 1926 with a fire place that has a 30" tall and 40" wide opening. We would like to install a set of doors to help with the draft. Please see the enclosed. FYI the ruler to the left of the fire place is actually 48" long.

Our Comments: For fireplaces like yours that have stone this irregular we would normally recommend fitting the doors inside the opening and then filling the gap with mortar. This will provide the best seal. You can also overlap the opening and leave the gaps between the frame and the stones if you choose door with a wider frame to help hide those gaps.

Fireplace Opening: 40" W x 30" H

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.

Black Mesh Curtains - These slide back and forth on a rod behind the glass
Gate Mesh Doors - These are separate doors behind the glass that have a flat wire mesh and a black frame.
Insulation: Provides a better seal between the fireplace face and the door frame.
