Our sliding fireplace doors allow the glass doors to slide back and forth much like a sliding barn door. The rollers and track are engineered for many years of quiet, easy glide operation. These doors are custom made to your specifications and will work well in any setting from traditional to modern and contemporary. This door, with its industrial elements, also lends itself to the industrial themed home.
Sliding fireplace doors have a certain style—they are reminiscent of country life. For some of us, there’s an industrial flare! We love how the fireplace doors become a part of the fireplace decor when the fire is going. For many fireplace doors, the frame is all you can really enjoy when your firebox is lit up by a fire, so it’s nice to have a style that lets you enjoy the whole fireplace door while you’re enjoying the fire inside.
A sliding fireplace door can also be a space saver! Instead of the fireplace doors that open outward, these doors give you the option to slide to the side! This can save so much space in your home while giving you a bold design and a conversation starter! The barn fireplace doors can most definitely add a refined and polished look to your home.
The sliding fireplace door does require a little extra measuring work as the doors do slide away from your fireplace rather than pull out. As we know this could be a space issue depending on where your fireplace is located, we made a nifty formula for you to make sure your doors will fit!
SIDE CLEARANCE FORMULA
To ensure everything fits correctly and you have enough space for the door rails use this formula below.
Opening width divided by 2 = X
X minus 2-1/4" = Clear Free Space need PER SIDE!
You will also need 2-3/8" of clear space above the opening to install the tracks and rollers
NOTE: For doors with glass larger than 4 square feet, Fireplace Doors Online recommends using 4 fixed panels instead of 2 to prevent unwanted glass breakage due to uneven heat distribution within the individual panes.
Our fireplace sliding doors can instantly change your fireplace from traditional to something more- a charming and unique conversation starter that you can enjoy for years to come!
These custom doors are some of the most interesting ones in our collection, with styles that appeal to rustic, modern and even industrial tastes! The sliding door design allows these fireplace doors to operate much like a barn door, sliding with rollers along a top-mounted track.
Our barn door sliding fireplace screens offer a multitude of different customizable features, including dozens of finish options as well as glass tints, handle options, and built-in mesh! Many of our barn doors even have ceramic glass available, which would allow you to burn a fire with your doors closed.
One of these doors, the Cable Roller Hudson, operates with a remote control, allowing you to open and close your fireplace door from right where you are!
Without doors that open outward, these sliding barn doors leave the space in front of your fireplace free and clear, so that you can keep your hearth looking simple and neat without sacrificing style.
Q: How do I convert my fireplace from wood to gas?
A: There are a few steps that you will need to take in order to convert your wood-burning fireplace to a gas one. First, you will need to contact a professional to inspect your fireplace. Next, if you do not have gas lines, you will need to contact your local gas service provider to assist you with setting up your home for the conversion. Once you have completed these steps you can get your parts needed to install your new gas fireplace! The next decision you will need to make is if you want to incorporate gas logs. Now, just to advise, gas logs come in two different types, the vented and vent-free. Your vented gas logs work with both propane and natural gas, they are not any messes, and you have the options for remote control start. The vent-free logs do not require a chimney, you do not have to worry about heat loss, and some places do not allow these gas logs. We also have a guide on how to install the gas log lighters in your fireplace. We will be more than happy to walk you through your journey if you give us a call!
Q: Can I keep the sliding door closed on my fireplace?
A: This is a yes and no question. You may close the door on your fireplace only if you have the ceramic glass option on your doors. Ceramic glass is made to withstand the heat coming from your fireplace and can only be placed on your masonry fireplace. If you have tempered glass, you can NOT close the door on your fireplace as the glass is not made to withstand the heat enclosed and will shatter. Please remember that ceramic glass cannot be installed on your prefab fireplace. This option is available only with a masonry fireplace. Although, with the tempered glass, you cannot close your doors; with choosing the barn doors you can keep a full view of your fire! The sliding door will not obstruct your view of your fire as they slide out.
