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.

Sometimes people search for fireplace glass door replacement, wood burning fireplace doors, iron fireplace doors etc. The important thing is knowing what type of fireplace you have because that will determine the door that you need to buy.

Masonry doors are more heavy duty and made of thicker steel / iron, but there are also masonry doors made from lighter metals like aluminum. In the world of fireplace doors there are many different types of variations and materials used depending mostly on the manufacturer of the door.

What is the difference between indoor and outdoor fireplace doors

The only difference is the material. When it comes to your outdoor fireplace door it needs to be able to withstand environmental exposure. There are also several designs to match your style.

We have fireplace doors with designs and a variety of finishes such as:

  • A variety of choices for handles like handcrafted, iron, brass, etc.
  • Glass - cabinet or bi-fold
  • Glass tints
  • High-quality metals like steel and aluminum

Now we get to the ceramic glass and tempered glass part. 

What is the difference between ceramic and tempered glass?

You see it all the time in action movies: a skylight shatters sending thousands of deadly shards of glass showering on the hero who miraculously isn’t hurt. The reality, though, is that if that had happened to the skylight, it wouldn't be so dramatic or deadly.  Most skylights today are made from tempered glass, the same glass on most of our fireplace doors!

Although the glass is a safer glass to use due to the shattering and the withstand, it is still important to be informed and to make an educated purchase. The glass on your fireplace or stove serves many purposes but it's good to know all the ins and outs of the glass and how to choose. Let's get this started on the glass education. Don't worry this is not going to take long.

Tempered glass is made with your safety in mind. When broken it does shatter but in smaller, harmless pieces. Tempered glass is also much more durable than ordinary, annealed glass. Ordinary glass breaks at about 6,000 psi (pounds per square inch) while tempered glass generally breaks at 24,000 psi. Tempered glass is made using a heat process (or in some cases a chemical process) that creates tension and compression in the glass. This gives the glass the durability it needs to stand up to the heat of your fireplace!

Ceramic glass is a little different. Formed in a two-step process, ceramic glass (called PyroCeram) encourages crystalline growth in the second phase of production. In this process the growth of crystals is controlled, allowing uniform growth within the glass. Ordinarily, crystal growth isn’t a good thing, but with ceramic glass, you get the advantages of glass with the durability of ceramics. This may not seem like such a big deal, but consider that your wood stove's glass window is made out of ceramic glass due to its durability and its ability to withstand extreme heat.  Originally ceramic glass wasn’t even designed for cooktops or fireplace doors and stoves, but telescopes!

Ceramic glass is most commonly used with wood, coal, and pellet stoves because ceramic glass can withstand continuous temperatures exceeding 1000° F. Wood burning stoves are used with the door closed, so it’s important that the glass used in the window be able to handle the intense heat put off by the stove. Ceramic glass is also used for ceramic glass fireplace doors when manufacturers think that the heat may exceed what tempered glass can handle. Tempered glass is far more common when it comes to fireplace doors! Since you shouldn’t burn your fireplace with the fireplace doors closed, tempered glass isn’t exposed to the extreme heat that could potentially damage or shatter it. It tends to be less expensive than ceramic glass, making it easier to replace damaged panels on your fire.

FAQs

You will often see a lot of fireplaces without any fireplace glass doors installed. It’s a common misconception that these are just accessories or for decoration. Not true! Adding masonry fireplace glass doors doesn’t just make your fireplace look more presentable, but also makes it more efficient and safer.

How Do I Install A Fireplace Door?

It’s easy with directions!

  • Every fireplace door comes complete with an installation guide. That being said, the method of fireplace door installation will be different for each model.
  • The key instructions will depend on the manufacturer, the measurements of your application, and the type of fireplace that you have (prefab or masonry).
  • But, just to roughly give you an idea of the basics that you need to consider, here’s a quick walkthrough of our short guide.

Won’t a screen work just as well?

  • Fireplace glass doors are more reliable compared to mesh screens!
  • While hanging mesh fireplace screens do provide a small measure of safety, they are not as secure as a fireplace door.
  • If you really would like a screen and you would like to play it safe there are also fireplace screens with glass doors. 
  • Glass barriers significantly reduce the risk of damage by keeping sparks and embers within the fireplace, while keeping your children and pets out! Without them, the likelihood of hot cinders flying around damaging carpet and furnishing is quite apparent. (Please note that only certain fireplace doors should be closed while a firebox is in use. Read more about glass types in our article ‘What’s the Difference Between Tempered and Ceramic Glass’)
  • Without a well-placed fireplace glass door, it may also harbor the risk of logs rolling out and causing harm to your home. Adding a door to your fireplace is a secure and inexpensive way to keep dangerous hazards contained, and your home and loved ones safe!

Why are fireplace doors necessary?

  • It promotes SAFETY
  • Fireplace glass doors are essential in keeping you and your loved ones safe in the coziest, comfortable corner of your home!
  • It goes without saying that the flames from a roaring fire are intriguing to look at and, on particularly cold days, you can't help but warm yourself by getting cozy next to the hearth.
  • This sounds like a relaxing thing to do, but doing so can potentially put you at risk. Curious little pets and small, often precarious children in your home could be injured or burned if your fireplace isn’t secure.
  • The inviting warmth and ambiance of the flames in an open fireplace can be a little too enticing for them, and the last thing you want is an injury.
  • With a fireplace glass door installed on your masonry fireplace, you will provide an enclosure that serves as protection against accidents when the fireplace is cold. Fireplace mesh, which is often included with fireplaces, will keep them safe as the flames flicker.
  • For an added safety measure: keep little hands away from the fire by placing a decorative fireplace screen in front of the doors.

There are several protective folding varieties available in our collection that will not just serve as additional protection but also beautify your fireplace even more!
These decorative fireplace screens add beauty and character to your already attractive hearth!

Will this stop cold air from coming in?

  • They keep dangerous downdrafts from entering your living space!
  • Installing glass doors for your fireplace has been proven to reduce downdrafts from the chimney. Downdrafts from winter storms can pull dangerous smoke into your home and can cause a multitude of problems.
  • In the event of a downdraft, it is also possible that embers can escape the fireplace and cause damage or worse, a fire. Closing your glass doors eliminates the hazards that accompany downdrafts.
  • (Plus, it makes your fireplace a lot more EFFICIENT!)

Why can’t I just put in a damper?

  • Fireplace doors are more efficient than chimney dampers!
  • Dampers are metal plates that regulate airflow in your chimney. Newly installed units fit like a glove, but after a year or two, they tend to warp and allow extra air to pass into the chimney.
  • It’s difficult to rely on it when longevity and durability are in question. Instead of relying solely on the damper, you could simply add fireplace doors to significantly reduce the cost of your home’s heating and cooling bills.
  • Prevent warm air from escaping your home during the winter, and keep cool air inside during the summer by having a fireplace glass door installed for your masonry fireplace.
