    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Collin from Auburn, AL on August 24, 2012
    It appears you are selling these doors as an accessory to the FMI Craftsman 42 Inch All-in-One Circulating Wood-Burning Fireplace. Yet the description says Mission Fireplace. Will these work with the Craftsman series?

    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on August 24, 2012

    Yes, these doors are indeed compatible with the FMI Craftsman 42" units.

    By Tammy from Greenville, SC on December 11, 2013
    I am looking for fireplace doors for an FMI fireplace model number 42E. I would also like to replace the screen. Can you help me with this?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 12, 2013

    Per the manufacturer, the doors are still available for this unit. It is important to note that the unit may not have a door rail kit installed if it is more than 15 years old or has never had doors before. FMI began adding the door rails on newer units. If the kit is present, you should be able to see mounting holes for the door pins near the edges of the opening. If you would like to order the doors, I can contact you via phone to do so.

    By Katie from Nashville, TN on November 4, 2015
    Will these Superior/FMI 42 inch extruded aluminum bi-fold glass doors work with a Craftsman 42P3 fireplace?
    By Chris C. on November 4, 2015

    These doors would indeed work with your Astria variant Craftsman 42P3 fireplace.

    By Colleen from Graniteville, SC on November 19, 2014
    Will these glass doors fit my FMI model B36 fireplace?
    By eFireplaceStore on November 19, 2014

    The correct doors to use will be the FMI 36 Inch Extruded Aluminum Bi-Fold Doors - Black. The doors will include the spring loaded mounting pins for attachment.

    By Karl Keefer from Harbeson, DE on January 18, 2017
    Recently received order # 115156, bi-fold doors for a Superior BCI - 42 fire place, Sr. # 6412K00093, Mf. Date 10-12. The opening that the doors are supposed to fit in is 22 1/2 inches high, the doors are 24 inches, won't work. What do I do now?
    By Kevin E. on January 18, 2017

    Hi Karl, we apologize for the issue with those doors. If you simply need to return those doors, you may complete our return form here. Or, if you feel these doors were recommended to you in error, please reply here with details of that recommendation and we'll be happy to look into it for you.

    By Shirley from NM on November 22, 2015
    I have a Desa C42L. Are these Superior/FMI 42 inch extruded aluminum bi-fold glass doors the correct doors for my unit? One of mine no longer closes properly and I cannot make it fit. I assume new doors will fix this issue.
    By Will M. on November 23, 2015

    That model does indeed use the BD42 doors, however, this sounds like one of the upper spring clips needs to be adjusted. The installation manual provides clarity on adjusting the spring clips.

    By Dave from Virginia on December 15, 2016
    Will these doors fit the Comfort Flame Columbus42LWS model? What is the height of these doors?
    By Will M. on December 15, 2016

    Unfortunately, these will not fit and we do not offer any doors that will fit this model.

    By Casey Porter from Los Angeles on January 11, 2013
    I moved into a home with existing fireplaces. The tag says Superior Fireplace Co., Model 43. Do you supply a glass door for this type fireplace?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 11, 2013

    Unfortunately, no, as we are not a dealer of this brand. However, you may be able to acquire glass doors for it through a local Lennox Hearth Products dealer.

    By Sandy from Howell, MI on January 14, 2016
    These Superior/FMI 42 inch extruded aluminum bi-fold glass doors look like the doors I have but where can I look to find a serial number on the fireplace so I know that they will install correctly?
    By Chris C. on January 14, 2016

    Usually, the serial number and model information is located on a build plate which is affixed to the fireplace chassis just above the refractory brick lining on either the left or right hand side of the fireplace. I have also seen the build plate attached to the fireplace chassis hidden behind the mesh curtains.

    By Steven Lee from Louisville, KY on December 10, 2016
    I have a DESA VB42L fireplace and I am looking to install doors. What is the difference between BD42 and BDB42 fireplace doors?

    By eFireplaceStore on December 12, 2016

    The BDB42 door models are slightly shorter than the BD42 models. Your fireplace will call for the BDB42 series in any finish.

    By Marc from Wayne, NJ on January 1, 2014
    I have a 10-year old DESA M42E (B-vent) gas fireplace. Will this bi-fold glass door model fit? My manual indicates that a BD42 door is the appropriate part number, and I'm assuming that FMI has placed its name on the DESA product line. The fireplace opening is 42" x 24" (my measurement) and has holes drilled in the sides.

    Also, does this item come with a replacement door-stop bracket (which is mentioned on the BD42 installation instructions)?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on January 3, 2014

    Yes, this is the bi-fold glass door kit for use with your M42E fireplace. Per the manufacturer, the door stop is not included in this BD42 door kit. That part can be purchased separately, however. Please reply with your shipping zip code and we can provide pricing and availability.

    By Lisa from CA on June 10, 2016
    Do you have this in silver color?
    By Chris C. on June 10, 2016

    We do carry the same doors but in a platinum finish as seen here.

    By tOM from South Beloit, Illinois on January 8, 2012
    Would this unit fit a majestic gas insert with opening 36" x 21 1/4" opening? Right side is 21 1/4", left side is 21. 1/2".
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 9, 2012

    We're sorry, but no, these doors are only for use with select FMI 42" fireplaces.

    By Kay from Traverse City, MI on May 13, 2012
    Do these doors fold flat against the front of the fireplace?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 14, 2012

    This particular style of door does not fold back flat against the fireplace. The individual panels will fold and project out into the room from the face of the fireplace.

    By Clay from Buies Creek, NC on December 29, 2015
    I have a Superior WRT3042RS Fireplace. Are these Superior/FMI 42 inch extruded aluminum bi-fold glass doors the correct doors?
    By Will M. on December 29, 2015

    These are indeed the correct doors for the WRT3042.

    By Andrew from Indianapolis, IN on October 24, 2013
    I am looking for bi fold glass doors for a DESA fireplace, VB42. The opening is 42 inches wide and 21.5 high (22 if channel included). Will these doors fit?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 24, 2013

    These doors are bit too tall for the VB42. Instead, the FMI 42 Inch Extruded Aluminum Bi-Fold Doors - Black should be used. The design is exactly the same, but they are able to fit the shorter opening of your fireplace.

    By Trudy from Mount Pleasant, SC on January 27, 2016
    We have a Desa B42L fireplace, door model BDG 42. We're just looking for a simple black bi-fold glass door. Do you carry these?
    By Will M. on January 27, 2016

    The BDG42 doors are available here.

    By Phillip from IN on November 5, 2015
    I have a Superior WRT3042WS fireplace that says use BD42B for replacement doors. I have screens in now and would like to add tempered glass. Are these Superior/FMI 42 inch extruded aluminum bi-fold glass doors the correct doors for me?
    By Will M. on November 6, 2015

    These would indeed be the correct doors. They are also available in Brushed Brass and Platinum.

    By Chris from Farmingdale, NJ on September 30, 2016
    I am purchasing a Superior WCT2042WSI fireplace. What doors will fit that fireplace?
    By Chris C. on September 30, 2016

    By Kirya Fefer from Chicago on February 11, 2013
    I have a DESA fireplace model B42L1-M. It has a 42 inch width opening and is 22 inches in height. I was wondering if these doors would fit this fireplace.
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 12, 2013

    No, these BD42 doors will not fit your B42L model. Your model requires the BDB42 series of doors, which you can see here:

    BDB42 Black Doors

    BDB42B Brushed Brass Doors

    BDB42P Platinum Doors

    By Virginia from Harrisonburg, VA on August 4, 2015
    I have a Desa CWC42C fireplace. I believe that this Superior/FMI 42 Inch extruded aluminum bi-fold glass doors are the ones that I need. Is this correct?
    By Will M. on August 4, 2015

    These would be the correct doors for your fireplace.

    By Tom from St. Peters, MO on January 6, 2017
    What is the height of the doors and would they fit a Heatilator EC42?
    By Brennan W. on January 9, 2017

    Unfortunately, as we are not a Heatilator dealer, neither these doors nor any others that we carry would fit your fireplace.

    By Bobby from Cabot, AR on January 8, 2015
    Are these the correct doors that I need for my FMI fireplace? I assume they are but I wanted to be certain. I only have the booklet and it states models (V)C42, (V)C42I, (V)C42H, (V)C42L, (V)C42LI, (V)C42LH and CWC42C.
    By eFireplaceStore on January 8, 2015

    These are indeed the correct doors for the list of model numbers indicated by your owner's booklet.

    By Megan from Oklahoma on December 12, 2016
    We have the Superior WRT3042WS wood burning fireplace 42 inches. Will these doors fit this model?
    By Will M. on December 13, 2016

    These are indeed the correct doors for the WRT/WCT3042.

    By Niles from Troutman, NC on December 23, 2015
    Can these Superior/FMI 42 inch extruded aluminum bi-fold glass doors be used with a Superior 42" Model WRT4500 Smooth Faced Woodburning Fireplace WRT4542WH? If yes, does it include mounting instructions?
    By Brennan W. on December 23, 2015

    These doors would not fit your fireplace. The proper doors for the WRT4542WH are the FMI Extruded Aluminum 42 Inch Bi-fold Doors with Door Track and Rail for Georgian Fireplace.

    By David from Charleston, SC on November 22, 2016
    I have a Astria Craftsman 42P2 fireplace which calls for a model BD42 door. The fireplace opening is 24" X 42" and appears the same as FMI VC42 fireplace. Will this door fit?

    By Warren from San Antonio, TX on December 1, 2014
    Am I supposed to remove the black metal mesh screen that came with the fireplace when I install these doors?
    By eFireplaceStore on December 2, 2014

    It is recommended to leave the screen in place. The doors should be left open when you first light a fire, in order to allow the glass panes to slowly warm and prevent them from shattering. During this time, the screens should be used to prevent embers and sparks from leaving the fireplace.

    By Thomas Ward from Oliver Springs, Tennessee on January 8, 2017
    Will this door fit the Superior WRT3042 Pro Series 42" insulated Radiant*Wood Burning Fireplace?
    By Brennan W. on January 9, 2017

    These will indeed work for the WRT3042.

    By beth meyer from howell, MI on August 12, 2012
    We moved in to a house with a gas log fireplace and the doors are missing. we have the track but need doors. Our opening is 42" wide by 21" high. I am wondering if these doors would fit, I really don't want to spend alot and this would be perfect.
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on August 13, 2012

    Unfortunately, these doors are manufactured for use with only FMI fireplaces. We cannot recommend their use with your fireplace. Unless, of course, it was manufactured by FMI. This contingency is true for the majority of our pre-fab fireplace door kits - the manufacturer of the door kit must also manufacture the fireplace.

    By Howard from Oklahoma on December 9, 2016
    I have Superior model WCT3042WS. Are these the correct doors for my fireplace?
    By Brennan W. on December 9, 2016

    These are indeed the correct doors for your unit.

    By John from MS on April 4, 2016
    I have an FMI Comfort Flame Fireplace, Model CWC42C. I need glass doors to fit this model. Would the Superior/FMI 42 inch doors (Black) fit? I ordered glass doors from Amazon and they sent me doors that were way too short.
    By eFireplaceStore on April 4, 2016

    The doors you are currently viewing are the correct doors for your application. The doors fit the taller opening that the CWC42C uses.

    By Dave from Virginia Beach, Virginia on November 18, 2016
    Will these fit a Columbus 42" LWS?

    By Al from Mesa, AZ on May 5, 2017
    Will this fit a Desa C42H Fireplace and do you have a store in my area?

    By Will M. on May 8, 2017

    While these doors will indeed work with the Desa/FMI C42H, we do not have any brick and mortar stores.

    By Chris from Tucson, AZ on June 8, 2013
    Do you have doors for a 1994 FMI Gas Fireplace, part number DG42E?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 12, 2013

    Per the manufacturer, the door part number for this unit has changed to VDBP42E. This is a black bi-fold door assembly, that are only available as a special order item.

    They're OK with a little tweaking
    from Dallason
    January 26, 2016
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    The doors arrived on time and were very easy to install. However, after I initially installed them they were significantly out of alignment. Another annoying problem is that the glass panels were not all installed in the same orientation. You can tell this because the small labeling on the individual panes were different. Whereas the label on one would be upper right, some would be lower left etc. To fix this, I had to completely disassemble the panels, re-orient the panels and reassemble. With some finessing I was able to get the doors aligned and the panels oriented in a symmetric fashion. If you are not as persnickity as me, you can just hang them as-is. Also, the handles are of poor quality and one of mine broke immediately. But, for the price and ease of installation not too bad
    ease of installation
    glass panels not oriented uniformly handles are not very durable

    great service and great product

    Poorly assembled
    from Indianapolison
    December 23, 2015
    While the doors have an excellent appearance to them for the price point, the product as received required a lot of work before install. The glass of each pane was not correctly centered, which required adjustment so that the doors would not have gaps between them, also they required tilting (side to side / top to bottom) to get the upper and lower gaps parallel. ( only so much adjustment you can get out of the fireplace frame adjusters. After getting all that corrected, and this may be nit picking, but the glass on 2 of the doors were upside down and inside out in comparison to the other doors (noticed the etched / stamped mfg name on the corners of the glass panes), So it all had to come apart again, and start all over. Once all that was corrected, the function and appearance was what I would expect for doors of that price point.
    Good appearance and function.
    Not well assembled, requires a large amount of rework, and you need to be mechanically minded, to be able to get them right.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Easy to install and fits perfectly. Provides a totally unobstructed view of the fire while serving as an additional safety barrier. Should have bought this a year ago when the fireplace was first installed. The peace of mind it offers alone, is worth the price.
    * Easy to Install * Easy to clean * Opens and closes easily. * Provides added barrier of protection from heat to side mantels. * Keeps cats from using the fireplace as a litter box when the fire and coals have died out! Cats love the fireplace more than we do.
