I am looking at this unit to cover a fireplace with a gas log insert. The hearth is about 6 inches below the opening of the fireplace so I cannot have any of the feet protruding back towards the fireplace since there is no opening at hearth level. I see the main feet face forward so the screen can sit flush to the face but what about the small leveling feet that are further in? Will the screen still go flush to the fireplace face?
By Will M. on February 4, 2016
Answer:This screen does indeed have leveling feet that are present further inward on the screen, however they do not project rearward towards the fireplace opening.

How do these doors stay closed? Do the handles on the doors get very hot when there is a fire in the fireplace?
By Chris C. on November 7, 2014
Answer:Per the manufacturer, there are magnets at the tops of each door to keep them closed tightly against the frame. Being that the screen will be relatively close in relation to the fire, I would expect the handles to become hot to touch.

Are the 2 folding doors made of glass or wire mesh?
By Will M. on March 14, 2016
Answer:There will be no glass in the assembly of this screen and only mesh screening material is used.

I understand the screen should be larger than the opening. My opening is 34" wide and the screen is 36" wide. My question is how the outside legs fit into the fireplace since they appear to be attached on the sides and so would not allow the screen to be flush against the fireplace?
By eFireplaceStore on August 18, 2014
Answer:The front support legs are actually attached to the front facing of the perimeter frame. This allows you to push the screen completely flat against the fireplace, without having the legs interfere. The screen does use a pair of smaller leveling feet that are set further inward, but they are so far inside the fireplace opening that they would not interfere with your application.
By Kristine from Pennsylvania on August 18, 2014
Answer:the legs are only a 1/2 leg, they only attach to the front of the screen leaving the back of the screen flat so that it sits against the fireplace.

I have a raised firebox that sits about 3.5 inches above the hearth. How far in do the inner legs of this Minuteman S-66 Windowpane Fireplace Screen w/ Doors reach? I'm concerned that the screen will have to sit too far away from the firebox to accommodate the inner feet. Do you have any other suggestions?
By Will M. on July 21, 2015
Answer:The inner leveling feet do not project rearward into the fireplace opening. The screen will sit flush.
