Fitted Fireplace Doors
Inset into existing stone and masonry
Not all fireplaces are built with screens and fireplace doors in mind, and not all builders, fireplace masons, decorators or designers are familiar with the limitations of surface mounted retrofit fireplace fronts.
Many fireplaces need custom fitted screens or doors when free-standing screens won't do and surface mounted units won't work well. This is especially true of stone fireplaces and those with arched tops.
This small fireplace needed both screens and tempered glass doors for safety and energy efficiency, and the clients wanted a hand crafted look without a heavy metal appearance. A clever turn latch at the center of the doors and tempered glass panels that slide in front of the screens met their needs for function and beauty.
