Mesh fireplace doors are identical to regular fireplace doors except the glass doors are replaced with mesh. Certain types of prefab fireplaces such as vent-free ones cannot have glass doors, which is one of the reasons these fireplace doors with mesh screens were created.
Fireplace mesh screen doors can also serve another purpose, since there is no glass the doors don't actually have to be closed during operation which is required of all glass prefab doors. Some people prefer this and you also don't have to worry about the glass breaking over time or accidentally.
When we say fireplace mesh doors, we aren't talking about the regular sliding curtain mesh. You can get fireplace doors with mesh curtain but those are typically installed behind the glass door and not available with the mesh only. Fireplace mesh doors have cabinet "gate" mesh which is rigid steel mesh pulled tight within a metal frame, and installed flush with the main door frame.
