Can you let me know how much clearance the doors will need. My fireplace is outside and this screen will need to set inside the firebox. There is a lip at the bottom of the firebox of approx. 1 inch. Will the door clear the lip and by how much? Also, is there screen around the frame outside the doors?
By Customer Service on October 17, 2011
Answer:The frame of this screen sits directly on the hearth and is held in place by the support feet that are welded to either side of the frame. The screen must have something to lean back against, otherwise it would fall back into the fireplace.
As far as the clearance goes, there is about 7/8" from the bottom of the screen to the bottom of the doors. You may be able to elevate the screen slightly to gain the door clearance you need.
The doors themselves have screen made into them, but the surrounding frame will have no screen.

What is the difference between black wrought iron and vintage iron mission style fireplace screens?
By Customer Service on October 17, 2011
Answer:The only difference between these two items is the black wrought iron will come with a matte black finish that has been applied by the manufacturer, while the vintage iron will not. The vintage iron screen will retain the natural, dark gray finish that is a result of the forging process.

Are the feet on the front of this Woodfield Mission style black wrought iron fireplace hearth screen only or do they also appear on the rear of the screen?
By eFireplaceStore on November 30, 2015
Answer:This screen does indeed have leveling feet that are present further inward on the screen, however they do not project toward the fireplace opening and will not effect screen placement.

We're interested in this screen for use on a fireplace in an older home. The opening is 28 in wide x 27 in high so from what I can tell the door size is a decent match. Is this item or something similar available in another color such as a bronze or other darker antique tone to better complement our hearth and stonework?

A screen with identical dimensions in burnished bronze version is available here.

What material, if any, is on the sections between the outer edge and side of the door? Is it just open space? My opening is 36" wide and 30" so the size of this product is perfect but from the picture it looks as though the "strips" on the side are just opened. Is that correct?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 6, 2014
Answer:You are indeed correct that the perimeter frame around the door assembly is open with no screening. As such, this screen only effectively covers a 30 inch wide by 26 inch tall opening, as the doors and their surrounding frame offer the only coverage.

The doors are mesh, correct?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on December 12, 2011
Answer:That is correct. These are indeed screen doors.

I'm looking for a black, square screen with doors. My dimensions are 28 W X 27 H. I like clean styles such as the Woodfield Mission Style Black Wrought Iron Fireplace Hearth Screen with Doors and the Pilgrim Forged Iron Fireplace Screen with Straight Doors. What would you recommend?

My opening is 33" wide X 24" tall. I want this look (or something similar) in black. This is the focal point of the house, so want it to look perfect. Do you have any other suggestions?
By Will M. on December 20, 2016
Answer:In this style, we do not offer anything shorter than 31". However, we have the ability to offer custom screens. If interested, we will forward a form that may be completed and returned to receive pricing and availability.

Our fireplace opening is 33" wide. Do the feet of this screen extend behind or only to the front? Will we be able to have the screen flush against the opening or will it need to stand? How many inches in front?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 10, 2013
Answer:This screen assembly only has stabilizing feet in the front of the screen. As such, it will be able to sit flat against the fireplace facing.
