Fireplace doors are a beautiful and functional addition to almost any fireplace!
Choosing the perfect door
Fireplace doors are custom built specifically to the dimensions of your fireplace so you can be sure that your door will fit perfectly and look amazing. There are five easy steps to designing your perfect door:
1. Determine your type of fireplace –
there are many types of fireplaces: masonry or factory built/prefabricated, direct vent, vent free and electric. Masonry fireplaces are built with brick or stone and usually have a chimney made of the same brick/stone. Factory built/prefabricated fireplaces are usually made from metal boxes and the chimney is usually faced with the same material as your house. Factory built fireplaces, also called “Zero Clearance” or “ZC” fireplaces, require an air exchange between the firebox and combustible materials used around the framing of the fireplace. ZC doors are designed to allow for the required airflow that keeps your prefab fireplace working correctly. Direct vent fireplaces have sealed ceramic glass in the front and are vented directly out the wall.
2. Choose your style of door –
Manufactured doors come in both steel and aluminum. Some feature laser cut steel doors for customers that want a more “traditional” or “old world” style. Some are made from heavy gauge aluminum and offer sleek and minimal frame designs, perfect for today’s contemporary style.
3. Choose your door model –
In the old world looking doors you can choose from the classic style with its rugged steel construction and popular design options like arch doors and window pane. Choose the exclusive “Cutback” option on the and get a minimal frame with maximum style and glass.
4. Choose your finish –
The doors are available in over 25 powder coat finishes that have been popular with thousands of customers. The poular models are available in all colors of powder coat finishes and adds more options like Oil Rubbed Bronze, Antique Copper and our exclusive “Hand Crafted” finishes. Other doors are available in 28 powder coat finishes and 3 anodized finishes including Satin Nickel and Satin Brass. Whether you prefer the classic look of “Ancient Age” or the bold style of “Copper Fire”, you’re sure to find the finish that works perfectly with your fireplace.
5. Choose your options –
