A prefab fireplace door is made to fit a fireplace with a metal firebox. The other type door is a masonry fireplace door which is made to fit in a firebox made of concrete or brick.
Do prefab fireplace doors come with screens?
Yes, prefab fireplace doors come with screens or rather mesh curtains / doors. These screens can be either replacement mesh curtains that attach to a rod in your firebox or actual mesh doors that attach to the fireplace door frame and open like cabinet doors.
If you have a fireplace where you burn gas logs, you really don’t need a spark guard or mesh curtain because there are no sparks to pop out of your firebox since you don’t burn real wood. But a mesh screen could add a finished look to your fireplace if that’s the look you prefer. A mesh screen can also be helpful in keeping pets or small children from getting into the firebox when the fire is not burning.
If you burn real wood, you need a screen that will keep sparks from popping out of your fireplace. If you’re looking for a screen that attaches to your firebox and is not the “stand alone” type, you have some options. There are two types of screens that can be used with with prefab doors: replacement mesh curtains and mesh doors. We have lots of good information here
Replacement mesh curtains are usually a standard part of the fireplace. The metal curtain hangs loosely from a rod that runs across the top of the firebox opening. Mesh doors are a little more expensive but are worth the extra cost. These type screens are attached to the firebox and can be used with or without glass doors. These mesh doors open like cabinet doors and are a better option since they are attached to the firebox on all sides, unlike a mesh curtain which hangs and is not attached at the bottom. These mesh doors are a great product built to the exact size of your prefab doors so they fit easily behind the glass. You close the mesh doors while the fire is burning, leaving the glass doors open. Then when the fire is burned out, you would close the glass doors as well to keep out drafty cold air. If your fireplace is missing the rod and other parts for a mesh curtain, a mesh door is a good option if your budget allows.
A replacement mesh curtain is the least expensive choice. These mesh curtains are available in a variety of pre-made sizes to choose from to fit your fireplace. If you need a custom sized mesh curtain, please give us a call.
Can you paint prefab fireplace doors?
We frequently get asked whether you can paint prefab fireplace doors. The answer is yes but... you can paint just about anything if you use the right kind of paint. You need to ask yourself: Is painting really going to give you the look you want and is it going to be worth the trouble? The time it takes to prep and paint could be several hours and may not end up giving you the look you want. To truly do the job right, you’ll need to take apart the doors, do the prep work, paint all of the parts, and then put it all back together. If your doors are so worn that they need painting then there is a really good chance that they’re probably not working as well as new doors would. It could be worth it to purchase an economical set of new doors in a standard black finish.
Should prefab fireplace doors be opened or closed while the fire is burning?
Prefab doors should always be open when a fire is burning. This is true of all fireplace glass doors, but especially for prefab doors. A prefabricated zero clearance firebox with closed doors can reach a temperature of 10,000 degrees which can start fires and cause closed doors shatter. Tempered glass is not meant to withstand temperatures that high. Prefab doors are meant to be open while any fire is burning and closed as the fire is burning down or out. Fireplace doors are meant to prevent the draft that occurs when the flue is open and the fire is dying out so you don't have to sit there and wait till the fire is stone cold.
How do I remove prefab fireplace doors and frames?
Removing prefab fireplace doors and frames is usually an easy process only requiring a screwdriver.
If you are purchasing new fireplace doors to replace your old ones, removing the old doors before you measure for your new doors makes the measuring process a little easier. Frequently, there can be parts that need to be removed from the original installation so that the new frame can go into the fireplace.
How do I measure my fireplace for prefab fireplace doors?
Measuring for prefab fireplace doors is different from measuring for masonry fireplace doors. Typically, a masonry door is an overlap fit which means you only have to get the measurements close, not exact. Prefab fireplace doors require an exact measurement or there will be problems with the way the doors will fit. An eighth of an inch too big and the doors won't go into the firebox opening. An eighth of an inch too small usually not a problem since the fireplace requires ventilation around the doors. If the measurement is off more than that, you will not be happy with the gaps that will be created. We go the extra mile to make sure that every customer understands exactly how to measure their prefab fireplace and if there's a problem we're only a phone call away.
Here is a great video that will help you measure your prefab fireplace. The first one is very simple and straightforward and the second one gives you some tips on what to watch out for. Just five minutes invested in a little education can really make you confident that you’re getting the right door for your fireplace.
Do prefab fireplace doors come with a fan, blower, or heat exchanger?
No. Prefab fireplace doors do not come with fans or blowers. You can buy fans and blowers that will work with fireplace doors installed but there are no doors with built-in fans or blowers. Many prefab fireplaces were originally installed with blowers in the unit where the vents or very close to the fireplace doors, but they are not a part of the fireplace doors.
Do prefab fireplace doors come with vents and damper controls?
No. Prefab fireplace doors do not come with vents and damper controls. These features are typically found on masonry doors.Some prefab fireplaces have vents and damper controls built into the firebox but not into the doors. These features on a prefabricated fireplace need to be taken into consideration when you’re measuring and replacing your prefab doors. Sometimes the vents need to be measured around or can influence the door that will fit into your fireplace.

Can you seal prefab fireplace doors?
Prefab fireplace doors cannot be sealed. There are specific codes that require proper ventilation in all prefabricated fireplaces so you will find that there are very small gaps around the edges of the doors and frame to meet these national fireplace code requirements. Many people are looking for an airtight prefab door but due to code regulations, these type doors are not available.
Are there special prefab fireplace doors for gas fireplaces with gas logs?
No. There are not prefab doors made specially for gas fireplaces. A prefab door can typically be used on a gas or wood burning fireplace.
Are there prefab fireplace doors for stone fireplaces?
Yes, you can purchase prefab fireplace doors for your stone fireplace if your firebox is a zero clearance pre-fabricated firebox made of metal. If you have stone surrounding your prefab firebox, the main consideration is whether or not the stones jut out into the opening of your firebox. It’s a pretty standard practice for a builder to install the firebox before the stone mason installs the stone. There’s a good chance that a stone surround will impede the firebox opening and not allow for a proper fit for the doors.
How do I know what kind of replacement fireplace doors I need?
There are a couple of different ways to tell what kind of replacement door you need. First, you need to decide whether you want just a basic door or whether you would like a higher-end decorative door to enhance your room. If you just need a basic door, replacement doors that come with no frame may be a good choice. These type doors are only available in pre-made sizes for certain prefab fireplace brands and model numbers. These doors include four glass panels hinged together with no frame. These glass panels attach to the firebox without being inside a frame. These doors are a good solution if your fireplace brand and model number matches up with the model sizes available. You must already have a track built into the top of your firebox for the doors to attach to.
If you do not see your model number listed as one that the replacement doors will fit, you can purchase an economical door that comes with a frame that can be made to fit and attach to your fireplace perfectly. The EZ Door is a great option since a number of basic sizes are in stock. Shopping by your fireplace model number is a huge help since that information guarantees a precise fit of the doors. You can read more here on measuring your fireplace and how to find your model numbers and determine if the parts of your fireplace are in place. We can make a door for any prefab fireplace if you send us the correct measurements. Here is some more information on measuring for your fireplace door.
As always, if you have any concerns or questions please send us a picture of your fireplace at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be glad to help you. Or just give us a call at 800-897-7175.
How long does it take for me to get my new fireplace door?
Fireplace doors can be stock doors, which are already constructed in specific sizes, or custom doors, which are made at the time of the order to specific measurements.. Since stock doors are pre-made, they are in stock and can ship right away. Custom doors are made to specific sizes and options and typically require three to four weeks (depending on the season) to be constructed and shipped. Masonry doors usually have more stock sizes than prefab doors because they can be made in small, medium, and large sizes and installed with an overlap fit. Prefab doors come in many different sizes because of the wide range of sizes of fireplace openings. Because of the difficulty in stocking so many sizes, most fireplace companies have to make each door custom. Here at Brick-Anew, we carry a very large assortment of prefab doors that can be shipped quickly. Look for the “Quick Ship” label to find doors that can ship in 24 to 48 hours.
