Arched Fireplace Doors

Our line of gorgeous arched fireplace doors boasts seamless cuts, sleek lines, and glamorous details! These masonry fireplace doors are available in a variety of finishes, glass colors, handle styles, and mesh curtain options. All of the arched fireplace doors are custom made! We'll send you a template and instructions on how to trace the opening of your fireplace so that your doors fit perfectly. Once you've completed this step, send the template back to us and we'll get started on your custom fireplace doors. Please know that this process may take a little longer to complete as compared to other fireplace doors that we carry, due to the curvature of the frame and glass. We want to make sure your doors fit perfectly so that you can enjoy them for years to come!

When you speak with one of our customer service professionals, please be sure to specify which type of fit your arched fireplace door will be. If your enclosure needs to sit outside of the opening, this is what's known as an Overlap Fit. If you want your fireplace door to fit inside, flush with the facing, then it is known as an Inside Fit. Inside fitting doors will need to be mortared into place to create the appearance that your wood burning fireplace glass door was always there!

How Do I Measure An Arched Opening For My Fireplace Door?

Arched openings are often associated with cut stone fireplaces. These stones tend to have variations in them, making the measurement of the arch a bit inconsistent. To hide this, a lot of installers will opt for overlapped replacement fireplace doors. However, an inside fit door allows the natural flow and beautiful design of the stone to be seen.

Regardless of the door fit you choose or the substrate material your fireplace has, measuring for a custom arched fireplace door doesn't have to be tricky. We're going to tell you how to measure for fireplace doors for your arched top application! To get accurate dimensions, you need to make a template of your fireplace opening. We recommend using a 5-7mm polyester (plastic) film to trace the arch of your fireplace. This material can be found at your local hardware or arts and crafts store.

How To Measure Your Arched Opening:
  1. Obtain a very large piece of the plastic film – big enough that it will cover the entire opening, as well as an additional 12 inches above the arch and 2-3 feet on either side of the opening. (You may need to tape two pieces of film together in order to cover the entire area.) The bottom of the film should be flush with the bottom of the fireplace opening.
  2. Use a low-tack masking tape to apply the film to your fireplace.
  3. Use a black felt tip marker to carefully and accurately trace the opening of your fireplace. Maintain an eye level with your marker at all times to ensure an exact representation of the outline.
  4. If the lintel is not hidden behind the stone or substrate of your fireplace, you'll need to take its measurement into account in your outline. The location of the lintel is a very important component of your template. Please take a moment to measure:
    • the height of the lintel to the face of the fireplace
    • the depth of the lintel to the face of the fireplace
  5. Once completed, make sure to label your tracing correctly before sending it in. Mark the following information on the template:
    • left side
    • right side
    • lintel: mark “no lintel” or indicate the height & depth of the lintel
    • location of the hearth (no hearth, flush with opening, or above/below the opening – please include additional measurements in this case)
    • your name
    • purchase order number
    • your telephone number
    • contact name (person who drew the template)
    • order form/email (if applicable)
  6. Carefully roll the film into a cylinder (writing side in!) and place in a mailing tube to ensure safe shipment.
