Direct Vent Safety Screens: Why They're Necessary and How to Choose the Right Size

Direct vent gas fireplaces provide an efficient and convenient way to enjoy the warmth and ambiance of a real fire without the hassle of traditional wood-burning fireplaces. While these modern gas fireplaces are generally safe and easy to operate, it's essential to consider safety screens to enhance the protection of your home and loved ones. In this article, we will explore why direct vent safety screens are needed and how to measure to ensure you select the correct size for your direct vent gas fireplace.

Why Are Direct Vent Safety Screens Needed?

Prevent Accidental Contact: Direct vent gas fireplaces have glass fronts that can become extremely hot during operation. Without a safety screen, accidental contact with the hot glass can result in burns or injuries, especially if there are small children or pets in the household.

Protect from Debris: Safety screens also serve as a barrier to prevent debris, such as dust, pet hair, or foreign objects, from entering the combustion chamber or blocking the ventilation system of your fireplace. This helps maintain the efficiency and safety of your gas fireplace.

Compliance with Regulations: In some regions, building codes and regulations require the installation of safety screens on direct vent gas fireplaces to ensure they meet safety standards.

Measuring for the Correct Size Safety Screen

To ensure you select the right size safety screen for your direct vent gas fireplace, follow these steps:

Measure the Fireplace Opening:

Using a tape measure, measure the width and height of the opening where the direct vent gas fireplace is located. Next, obtain the precise minimum height by measuring the overall height of the metal frame that secures the glass in place.

Consider Screen Placement:

Safety screens are typically installed inside the fireplace opening, covering the glass. Therefore, ensure that your measurements account for the inside dimensions of the opening.

Determine the Type of Screen:

Safety screens come in various types, including fixed screens and retractable screens. Consider your preference and fireplace design when choosing the type of screen.

Select a Screen with Appropriate Dimensions:

When shopping for a safety screen, look for one that closely matches or slightly exceeds the dimensions you measured. It's better to have a screen that's slightly larger than the opening than one that's too small.

Consult the Manufacturer:

Always check the manufacturer's guidelines for your specific direct vent gas fireplace model. Manufacturers often provide recommendations regarding compatible safety screen sizes, which should be followed to ensure the safety and proper operation of your fireplace.


Direct vent gas fireplaces offer both comfort and efficiency, but safety should always be a top priority. Safety screens are essential to protect against accidental contact with hot glass and to prevent debris from entering the fireplace. By accurately measuring your fireplace opening and following the manufacturer's recommendations, you can select the correct size safety screen, enhancing both the safety and functionality of your direct vent gas fireplace. Remember, it's better to err on the side of caution and choose a slightly larger screen to ensure adequate coverage.

Manufacturer's Warranty

Manufacturer warrants the glass enclosures to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one (1) year from the date of installation. Manufacturer warrants the metal work (exclusive of the finish) contained in the glass enclosures to be free from defects in the materials and workmanship for a period of two (2) years from the date of installation. Discoloration of any frame piece is caused by over firing and is considered abuse of the enclosure.

Manufacturer will, however, replace without cost any glass that breaks in normal use. Manufacturer will cover shipping cost for replacement glass for a period of one (1) year from the date of installation. Warranties also are not transferable to new owners.  The foregoing limited warranty is not transferable by the customer and does not include the eventual defects caused by improper use or operation of the glass enclosure or by normal wear and tear. Manufacturer agrees that if the glass enclosure is determined to be defective in manufacture within the applicable written guarantee period set forth above, and the customer provides a written notice of such defects within fourteen (14) days of the end of such period to the customer’s local dealer, Manufacturer is limited to defects in manufacture, and Manufacturer shall not be responsible if the glass enclosure has not been used at all times with reasonable care and in accordance with the instructions which accompany each glass enclosure, and/or if any attempt has been made by any person other than Manufacturer or its authorized agents to repair, alter or otherwise interfere with the foregoing undertaking of Manufacturer is limited to the replacement of any determined by Manufacturer to be defective.
Finally, the enforceability of this limited Warranty shall be further subject to compliance with the following requirements:
A. That the customer complies with the instruction set forth above and does not misuse, abuse, alter, or modify the glass enclosure.
B. That the customer does not use the glass enclosure for a purpose other than its intended use.

The limited warranty set forth above, is expressly in lieu of any other warranties, express or implied, including without limitation any warranty of merchantability or fitness for particular purpose, whether express or implied, and lieu of any other obligation or liability on the part of Manufacturer. Whether under theories of contract, tort or negligence, Manufacturer, shall have no liability for any consequential, incidental or special damages by reason of any act or omission, whether negligent or not, arising out of or in connection with the glass enclosure or its sale, delivery, installation, maintenance, operation, performance, or use, including without limitation any loss of use, damage to associated property or the facility, or any other similar and dissimilar losses, cost.

Fireplace doors are hand crafted to the specifications of each order. Due to the nature of the anodization process on aluminum doors, and the plating/powder coating process on steel doors, slight variations in color may occur and will not be considered a warranty issue.

We bought this to replace the mesh curtains in our ventless fireplace. I know that this was not the intended use for this product, but it works GREAT. It was the easiest and most cost effective solution that we could find after much searching. It looks much nicer than the curtain, which never hung straight, and it will keep our grandson from getting to the decorative rocks that he likes to try to eat. No more worries about any or the grand-kids touching the pilot light or anything else in the firebox. The only unforeseen problem was that the magnets were permanently attached to the screen and the bottom 2 were not in line with any metal, but the fit was good enough that it does not seem like it is going to be a problem. Overall we are very pleased with the screen, both the quality and the service.

Does the mesh screen just cover the glass or does it cover the lovres on the top and bottom, which would be the overall height and width.
