Screen Doors for Rock Fireplace with Overhang - Project #11510

Customer Comments: Hi, I would like to get a quote on a screen for this fireplace. The opening is: 28" high by 45" wide. The overall width of the hearth is 78". I like your screen door with side panels style with a textured black finish.

Our Comments: Because the gas line is on the outside of the fireplace, we will need to add a 2" or 3" return to the back side of the screen with a notch to fit over the gas line. Each of the examples below can be made this way. We highly recommend screen doors that are attached to the fireplace so there are no issues with stability seeing as the hearth and fireplace face are somewhat irregular.

Fireplace Opening: 45" W x 28" 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.

Ultra High End

These doors are hand crafted by Artisans at Stone Manufacturing, known as the elite fireplace accessory manufacturer in the USA. Meticulously crafted from the highest quality components on the market. The wrought iron door is made by a highly skilled blacksmith and has a unique rustic texture that develops during the forging process. Their "Pseudo" bifold doors are unique in the industry minimizing the obstruction of the fire with the added convenience of bifold doors that take up half the space when they are open. These doors are quite expensive, but are available as cabinet doors at a slightly lesser price.

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.
