The perfect fireplace and your “picture perfect” fireplace door is just waiting! These overlap fit doors feature a perfectly symmetrical design that goes over the opening of your firebox.

In the graphic to the right, you can clearly see the blue outline, which indicates how a 4 sided overlap fit fireplace door will sit over the metal of the firebox. Four-sided fireplace doors are a great choice for your hole in the wall fireplace, but for those with a hearth, you need an inside fit door, which looks like this.
Many masonry fireplace doors need a hearth for the frame of your fireplace door to sit on, but a four-sided fireplace door doesn’t! As a matter of fact, a four-sided overlap fireplace door cannot be installed on fireplaces that have a flush or raised hearth. But, if your fireplace doesn’t have a hearth and is ‘a hole in the wall’, an overlap fireplace door is fine!

Most overlap fit fireplace doors are only three-sided and need to sit on a hearth. But, if you don’t have a hearth and have instead a ‘hole in the wall’ fireplace, you need all four sides! Proper installation of your new fireplace door is essential to the longevity of the door. All of the products we sell are designed to last for years.
Remember that even though these four-sided fireplace doors work great with uneven surfaces, it is still imperative to measure your fireplace correctly. You can learn more about how to measure your fireplace here, or use our handy Snapshot Quote feature so that we can help you!
