Can I Burn a Fire with the Doors Closed? 

Technically you may burn a small fire with the door closed – however the definition of a small fire can vary wildly. There a few dangers in burning fires with the doors closed: 

  • It violates all manufacturer warranties and most established fire codes. Your firebox is made of metal and that it requires proper ventilation and cooling- if your firebox becomes too hot, it becomes a fire hazard.
  • If you close your doors to build your fire – all the heat will go up your chimney instead of into the room.
  • While we sell the highest quality tempered glass with all our doors, it is not made to withstand extremely high temperatures. – please call 800.897.7175 if you have questions.
  • You may see that most of the pictures of fp doors show them in a closed position with a fire behind them, this is done by the manufacturer when they photograph the doors. This is an industry standard that is done for presentation purposes only.

What is the Difference Between Frames 

  • Frames range from simple anodized aluminum to guage welded steel frames. Frame widths refer to the outer portion of the fireplace doors.
  • Aluminium alloys are anodized to increase corrosion resistance, to increase surface hardness, and to allow dyeing (coloring), improved lubrication, or improved adhesion.
  • Steel is an alloy consisting mostly of iron, with a carbon content. As the gauge number increases, the material thickness decreases.
