Glass Door and Mantel for Fireplace Remodel - Project #11518
Our Comments: The fireplace is being remodeled with stacked stone replacing the current rock. Here are some examples of how that might look with glass doors and a steel mantel. The stacked stone can cover most of the black metal, but there are some air vents at the bottom of the opening that cannot be covered. We show how those can be accommodated.
Fireplace Opening: 36 1/2" W x 21" 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.

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.
These are the measurements required for the Legend ZC Deluxe. The Stiletto only requires H1 and W1. For gas logs, we need W2 as the front width, you already provided the depth and back width.
W1 - With of metal opening: 36 1/2"
W2 - Width of inner black metal (for gas logs):
W3 - Width of outer black metal:
H1 - Height of Metal Opening: 21"
H2 - Height of bottom black metal up to vent
H3 - Height from bottom of vent to bottom of opening
H4 - Height of black metal from top of opening
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.
