We have a 42" fireplace. One of the glass doors shattered. I think because it got too hot from a log leaning on it.
The opening is 23.5" by 42.25", I assume this is a standard 42" opening? Are they standard?
If so, do you have a two door unit with Brushed nickel trim?
Our fireplace opens on two sides, only one piece of glass is bad (out of 4). Can one piece be replaced?
Can I change the gold trim to brushed Nickel on the side wjere both pieces of glass are good?

Answer:I am sorry to hear of the damage to your fireplace door. Most manufactured fireplaces have an opening height that ranges from 21 to 30 inches, depending on the model and manufacturer. Do you happen to know the brand and model of the unit?
Fireplace manufacturers only offer a complete door assembly and do not carry individual panes of glass. However, individual panes can often be obtained locally from glass companies that deal with heat treated tempered glass. Again, if you would like to provide the manufacturer name and model number of the unit, I can definitely explore further options.
