I have a Martin Industries glass door on my fireplace, model B36P(B) or BAY36. Do I need to uninstall the glass doors in order to replace the mesh screen curtain? The rod on which the curtain threads is a continuous rod with a loop in the center.
By Will M. on February 23, 2015

There should be a clamp in the center that is held in with screws. By loosening the screws, you should be able to remove the screen rods to replace the screen.

By Bryan from NJ on November 16, 2014
My current screen is 39 inches wide x 20 inches high. What would you suggest as a replacement?
By eFireplaceStore on November 17, 2014

The Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24" x 19.5" - RMP2419 will be the closest product that we offer. It consists of a pair of 24 inch screen panels for total coverage of up to 48 inches.

By Alan from Berkshires, MA on January 28, 2013
I have a good mesh screen but it limits the heat that gets out into the room. Are there any that let more heat out but protect?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 29, 2013

All of our mesh screens are the standard pull variety with a chain-link appearance. We do not have any that are marketed as allowing more heat into the room.

By Mickie from Fort Worth, TX on July 8, 2014
We are trying to replace the screen for a fireplace with an opening that measures 23 inches height. Which screen should we get?

By eFireplaceStore on July 8, 2014

The correct screen to use will depend largely on how high off of the floor the screen support rod or track is located.

By Steve from Grand Junction, CO on March 10, 2016
I'm looking for a mesh screen curtain for an outdoor fireplace. The last one I got was cheap and fell apart in just a few months. Do you carry a heavy duty curtain?
By Will M. on March 10, 2016

We do not offer a screen specifically made for outdoor use, but I recommend simply choosing an appropriately sized screen and painting the screen with a high temperature ceramic paint. This will increase their longevity and offer better resistance to corrosion. Ceramic paint can often be found at home improvement and auto parts stores.

By George from Atlantic Beach, FL on November 24, 2013
Our opening width is 36" and height is 23". What's the best size for us in a mesh curtain? We live near the ocean; are any of the mesh curtains treated to prevent rust?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 25, 2013

While it depends on exactly how far down your mounting rod is positioned, it is common to use a screen mesh that is 1 inch shorter than your fireplace opening, to allow for the height of the mounting rings and rod. A high quality mesh that includes the height of the attachment rings is the Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24" x 22.5" - RMP2422. Unfortunately, we do not carry a particular mesh that is more rust resistant, but this brand is made of heavy gauge wire and tends to last longer than other brands.

By Carol from NH on December 12, 2014
I have a 43" W x 30" H fireplace opening. What fireplace screen size would you recommend for me?
By eFireplaceStore on December 12, 2014

A product in the 50 inch size category will be needed, as the next category down will be too small for your application. A product such as the Minuteman SA-5036 Plain By Design Fireplace Screen - 50" x 36" - Black would be a good choice for your application.

By Alan from Srerling, MA on December 20, 2015
I need a mounting rod and screens for a fireplace that is 28" tall and 36 " wide. Do you carry something like this?
By eFireplaceStore on December 21, 2015

The correct rod assembly to use will be the Woodfield Hanging Fireplace Spark Screen Rod Kit - 61090. The screens that will work are the Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24 Inch x 27.5 Inch.

By Patti from CA on June 9, 2015
I need to replace my fireplace screen that measures 40" X 21". Which screen do I select?
By eFireplaceStore on June 10, 2015

If your measurement provided is just the screen itself, I recommend using the Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24" x 21.5". The extra 1/2 of an inch comes from the hanging rings. The two panels measure a total of 48 inches wide, for proper draping. If the measurement includes the hanging rings, I would instead use the Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24" x 20.5".

By Joan from Laguna Niguel, CA on October 20, 2012
The mesh I am replacing measures 22 inches but that is not an option. Do you carry that size?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 22, 2012

The closest replacement we carry would be the 24 Inch x 21.5 inch replacement screen. The hanging height will include the 1/2 inch screen rings.

By Mitch from Wheaton, IL on October 2, 2015
My fireplace measures 31 1/2 inches wide by 25 1/4 inches tall. What is the best size mesh screen to buy. Also, what length/size rod should I purchase?
By Brennan W. on October 2, 2015

By roger from Marshalltown, Iowa on February 19, 2013
The fireplace opening is 40" wide and screens are about 26" high and we need a new mounting rod. Can you tell me what I need to order?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 19, 2013

If you already have the mesh screen panels, we recommend the UniFlame Adjustable Fireplace Curtain Rod Kit.

By William from Winchester, VA on December 7, 2013
My fireplace opening is 64" wide with a "pull" chain for the screens. The chain is long enough to run from one end to the other and back again although one end has been broken off. I can re-attach it. I have rigged it to pull the screens open by pulling one end and having the chain "loop" through the guide at the other end and back to the center. I have not been able to envision the configuration for the rest of the chain and attachment to the screens to make the screen pull closed. Should the chain actually be separated into two chains and pulled from opposite ends? What am I missing?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 9, 2013

In most door enclosures, the operation of the mesh is done by a single long pull chain, with handles at both ends. You have the current configuration correct, but normally, the chain would continue from the edge of the left hand screen attachment point, to the right hand of the enclosure where the current chain handle is. This way, the chain could be pulled and would close the screens. There are usually weighted handles on each of the chain ends, to keep the chain from bunching up on its track.

By Tim from Wayne, NJ on January 26, 2016
My fireplace has two separate panels that are 23" wide by 27" long which meet in the middle. Which mesh fireplace screens should I buy and do the panels come with clips to attach to the bar which runs the full width of the fireplace?
By Will M. on January 26, 2016

Assuming the 23" measurement is the height of the panels without the attachment rings, the Cascade Deluxe Heavy Duty Fireplace Mesh Panel Kit - 24" x 23.5" - 2423 would be suitable replacement options. The listed height of 23.5" includes the attachment rings.

By Dan from Caro, MI on October 22, 2014
Can your screens be trimmed at the bottom for a perfect fit?
By eFireplaceStore on October 22, 2014

While the screens can technically be trimmed, it is recommended to purchase the correct height as standard, whenever possible. Cutting the screens will remove the bottom guide wire, which usually keeps the screens from getting bunched together or tangled.

By Jackie from Rochester, MI on December 8, 2014
What size mesh screen do we buy for a fireplace opening that is 25 1/4 inches high and 35 1/4 inches wide? We need a screen and a track.

By eFireplaceStore on December 9, 2014

The correct screen kit to use for your opening will be the Cascade Deluxe Heavy Duty Fireplace Mesh Panel Kit - 24" x 24.5" - 2424. The mounting rod that can be used is the UniFlame Adjustable Fireplace Curtain Rod Kit.

By Karen on November 9, 2012
I have a fireplace opening that is 24" high, 45" across the front and with a 16" corner. This is from the top of the fireplace to the top of the hearth. I would like to have a hanging mesh black screen. Also, I don't know how to hang it. Can you give me some help and also a estimate, please.
on November 9, 2012

Based on the information you have provided, you will most likely need a screen kit, such as this model: Screen Kit This would need to be used in conjunction with a rod kit, such as this item: Rod Kit The rod kit can be attached to your fireplace walls using the supplied brackets. There is also a center bracket that mounts towards the center of the opening and allows you to adjust the width of the rods by overlapping the extra length. It is also possible to cut the rods down using a hacksaw or a band saw. One thing that I must confirm with you is the 16" corner measurement. I am not certain how this measurement was taken. Please elaborate further so I may be certain these items will work best for your needs.

By Luis from Atlanta, GA on October 6, 2014
My fireplace measures 37.75 inches wide by 27.75 inches high. What size screen should I purchase?
By Tyler M. on October 7, 2014

We recommend this screen kit for your fireplace:

Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24 Inch x 27.5 Inch

By Nicole from San Diego, CA on November 6, 2014
I need to install a new rod and mesh curtains for my fireplace. The fireplace is raised roughly 16" above the floor and there is no hearth. The inside opening measures 23 1/4" high by 36 3/8" wide. I am guessing that a standard 24" high curtain is too big and a standard 22" one is too small. I see that Cascade makes custom sizes, including one that is 23".

What size curtains do you recommend for my fireplace? If you recommend the odd-sized Cascade curtains, do you sell a rod that will work to hold them? Are the pulls separate from the mesh curtains?
By Will M. on November 7, 2014

The Cascade Deluxe Heavy Duty Fireplace Mesh Panel Kit - 24 Inch x 22.5 Inch should work as the hanging rings will add a 1/2 inch and the Woodfield Hanging Fireplace Spark Screen Rod Kit - 61090 will work for your width.

By Len from NY on September 16, 2013
I have a fireplace with an inside space of 32" wide by 24.5" in height. I would like to get the rod kit and a single mesh curtain. Uniflame curtains are 48" wide by 24" in height. Is that too much draping in the width? Is the 1/2 inch gap on the bottom an issue for sparks?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 17, 2013

The curtain will obviously have more draping over a standard 36 inch wide fireplace, but 32 inches will still be acceptable for this screen. Also, the spark screen mounting rod and hanging rings will usually take up the additional 1/2 inch gap without an issue, so there should not be any problem with ember control.

By Gloria from Dunedin, FL on September 5, 2015
My fireplace opening is 24" x 36" but I would prefer to go with one that is slightly wider, possibly 38" or 40" wide. When ordering replacements, do the measurements you list for width of 40 consist of 2 separate screens that will meet in the middle?
By Will M. on September 8, 2015

You will need to purchase a panel kit that is 1/2" shorter that the height of your opening to account for the pull rings. I recommend the Cascade Deluxe Heavy Duty Fireplace Mesh Panel Kit - 24" x 23.5" - 2423 as the two 24" wide panels will account for the width as well.

By Mike from Euless, TX on January 4, 2016
How do I measure for these mesh fireplace screens?
By Brennan W. on January 5, 2016

You will measure from the screen rod down to the floor of the fireplace, as you will need to determine the size of the top rings factored in with total height.

By Martin from Carlsbad, CA on January 24, 2013
Which mesh would you order for the FMI 42 fireplace?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 24, 2013

Depending on your model, the a replacement pull screen assembly may still be available. If you can reply with your full model number and a shipping zip code, we can advise on pricing and availability.

By Jim from Golden, CO on November 21, 2013
Is the Uniflame 20" x 48" a single panel? I have a fireplace opening of 20" x 48".
By Chris on November 21, 2013

This is indeed a single panel. I would suggest the Woodfield Hanging Fireplace Spark Screens as this kit includes two screens, each being 20" tall and 24" wide.

By Bev from Pierre, SD on October 13, 2014
I need a 32" W x 23" H mesh screen. Is this a standard size to order?
By eFireplaceStore on October 14, 2014

Most screens are listed in half inch increments, due to the extra half inch added by the hanging rings. A product such as the Cascade Deluxe Heavy Duty Fireplace Mesh Panel Kit - 24 Inch x 22.5 Inch should work well.

By David from Phoenix, AZ on June 2, 2013
I'm looking for a black fireplace screen to sit 4" - 6" inside of my 40" wide by 22.5" high opening. I'll also need the rod, clips and a way to pull the screen open and push it shut and possibly a strip of mounting hardware to hide the curtain rod along the top. Is there a kit where I can get all of this?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 3, 2013

Based on your photos and description, you could use the Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24 Inch x 21.5 Inch in conjunction with the UniFlame Adjustable Fireplace Curtain Rod Kit. The screen panels will cover a fireplace opening of up to 48 inches in width, and the 21.5 inch height will allow room for the mounting of the screen rod and for the mesh panels to slide without dragging. The screen will come complete with the hanging rings and pull handles as well.

You will most likely need to have a decorative metal shroud fabricated to cover the screen rod. This is a specialty item that we do not offer. The shroud could easily be made from 20 or 22 gauge galvanized steel and built with mounting tabs on each end to secure it to your fireplace.

By Sonny from Luling, LA on June 26, 2013
My screen appears to be 37" wide by 19.5". What is the correct replacement mesh screen?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 26, 2013

The best replacement screen for your needs is the Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24 Inch x 19.5 Inch. This panel set includes a pair of 24 inch panels, which will cover your opening completely and offer a fair amount of decorative draping. Please be aware that the advertised 19.5 inch height will include the total installation height, with the mounting rings included.

By Ken from Cherry Hill, NJ on November 24, 2012
I have mesh doors over a gas insert fireplace, two doors. Frame is 40"wide by 30" high. Do you have something similar to replace this with?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 26, 2012

While we do not have an item that features the doors mounting the far edges of the frame, we do offer a similar item, such as the Pilgrim Vintage Iron Fireplace Screen with Full-Height Doors.

By Jim Castor from Carson City, NV on October 26, 2012
The two screen options for my fireplace are Cascade or Fireside. The descriptions don't explain price difference. Is the Cascade a higher quality screen?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 26, 2012

The Cascade brand of screen is indeed a higher quality choice. A thicker gauge of steel wire is used in the manufacture of the Cascade line of products. Because of this, they will have superior longevity in most applications.

By Lisa from Chicago, IL on September 9, 2013
I have a Heatilator HB42AI fireplace that has no rod or mesh screen. The opening is 42" wide x 21" high. What screen height should I order?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 10, 2013

The best screen for your application will be the Cascade Black Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24" x 20.5". This item will allow the use of the screen without it dragging the bottom of the unit. The rod will need to be installed in the fireplace as high as possible to prevent the screen from being too long. The UniFlame Adjustable Fireplace Curtain Rod Kit could be used for your application.

By Brian from Alberta, Canada on December 19, 2012
Are the cascade mesh one piece at 24 inches or a set of two panels at 24 inches for a total of 48 inches?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 19, 2012

These panels are indeed a pair of 24 inch screens, for a total width of 48 inches.

By Brendan from Caledon, Ontario on October 8, 2014
I currently have 2 folding glass doors in front of my fireplace and we use it when the power goes out or if it's really cold out at night but the glass doesn't let much heat in the room. Would something like the mesh fireplace screen help?
By eFireplaceStore on October 8, 2014

That would indeed help. Doors are excellent to contain a fire, but they effectively close off most of the air supply from the room and cause air to be drawn in rather swiftly between the door panes. This cuts down on the circulation from the fireplace. Opening the doors and using mesh screens instead will offer spark protection and will allow heat to circulate to the room more readily.

By Jim from Bradenton, FL on September 27, 2013
The opening on my fireplace is 28.5 inches high and the width of the whole fireplace opening is 48 inches. Do you have a screen that would cover this? I would like 2 screens that open in the middle. Each would need to be 28" high and 24" wide x 2.
By Dawn H. on September 27, 2013

Yes, we have a Woodfield Hanging Fireplace Spark Screen in just the size you are requesting.

By Jon from Wisconsin on October 21, 2013
Do I measure from the top of the rod to the base to figure out the correct height for my new mesh screen? Also, how much clearance should I allow on the bottom?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 22, 2013

You do indeed want to measure from the top of the screen rod to the floor of the fireplace. You will need to subtract 1/2 an inch from the measurement to ensure proper clearance so that the screen does not drag.

By Strack from NJ on November 6, 2013
My fireplace has no door or screen. I'm thinking about a brass mesh screen. The dimensions of the opening are 31.5" length x 27" width. What suggestions do you have for me in choosing a screen and mounting hardware?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 6, 2013

The closest screen we carry to the sizing you will require is the Metaltone Brass Fireplace Mesh Panel Replacement Kit - 24 Inch x 27 Inch. The screen could be mounted downward from the top of the opening a bit to make up the difference. The brass color is the second screen in from the far right of the picture.

The Woodfield Hanging Fireplace Spark Screen Rod Kit - 61090 can be used to hang the screen. The individual rods are able to be cut down to accommodate your narrower opening.

By John from Portland, OR on July 5, 2014
How do I replace a fireplace screen?

By eFireplaceStore on July 7, 2014

In almost all cases, there is a pair of support rods that run across the fireplace opening and are held in place by a center clamp. The center clamp is usually tightened down by a screw or pair of screws. By loosening the screws, you should be able to remove the screen rods and remove them from the fireplace. The old screens can then be slid off the rods and the new screens installed. The individual rods can then be reinstalled and the center clamp tightened down again.
