Choosing A Door
Before you select a door for your fireplace you'll need to know what type of fireplace you have. There are two types of wood burning fireplaces:
Masonry Fireplaces are either constructed of brick or stone and a door can be made to overlap the fireplace opening or fit inside which is common on stone fireplaces. Installing a door on a masonry fireplace will increase the energy efficiency of our fireplace.
Zero Clearance are factory built, metal fireplace boxes. All Zero Clearance or ZC doors must be designed to allow air flow the way the firebox manufacturer intended. Gaps between the glass and frame vents exist on ZC doors to allow for this essential airflow. All fireplace "Z" doors offered by Westside Fireplaces are designed to allow for this airflow.
What style of working doors do you want: Bifold (4) panel or Twin (2) panel? A bi-fold door opens and folds in half taking up less space on the front of your fireplace making more room for your tool set or other accessories.
A Twin door is just a different word for a double door. Twin doors take up more room when they swing open.
Within the Bi-fold and Twin category you can choose one of the following: Full View Bi-fold, Semi Full View Bi-fold, Standard Twin and Full View Twin. Our trackless system allows for doors to open and swing freely to 180°.
Always consider your home décor. Choosing a glass door for your fireplace is like buying a piece of furniture, your fireplace is the focal point of your home, and with the options Diamond W has to offer, you can create a door that compliments your home.
