I have no lintel in my firebox, just a cement board and a stone veneer. Can this be screwed to the face of the fireplace? If not, are there doors that attach in this way, available?
If there is cement board and a stone veneer, this is likely a prefabricated fireplace and this door enclosure would not be safe to use. If this is indeed a prefabricated fireplace, any optional doors are tested and listed for safe use in the fully open or closed position with the fire burning and we will need to know the make and model number to look into compatible doors.

We have a masonry fireplace which measure 42" wide and 24 3/7" high. I am confused as to which measurements we should select when ordering a fireplace glass enclosure.
For this door set, you would select the 44" wide by 25" high.

My house is 150 years old. Fireplace opening is 34 3/8" W x 221/8"H. EXTERNAL damper handle has 4" clearance over current doors which
measure 38"Wx25"H. External damper handle is my issue. I've already had to send one door back. Will your door accommodate my situation?
Unfortunately, these doors would be the same size as your current ones, so they would not fix your installation issue.

July 6, 2016
Our masonry fireplace opening is 34 inches wide and 27 inches high. What size glass enclosure would fit the best?
With the fireplace opening being 34" wide and 27" tall, I would recommend the finish door width be ordered as 36", and the finished door height be ordered as 29".

For the unit that is 48 x 33, what are the exterior dimensions?
The drop down menus do indeed denote the exterior dimensions of the enclosure itself. Further down the page, there is a guide available to compare fireplace opening dimensions to ensure that the correct overall door size is chosen correctly. For example, if your fireplace measures 43" wide, the finished door width of 48" should be chosen as this will allow for overlap of the door enclosure to the fireplace facing.

April 6, 2016
Can these Princeton glass enclosures be installed on a floating fireplace?
As long as the fireplace has a flat fascia that is large enough to house the overall dimensions of the surround that will be provided with the door size you choose, there is not a reason why the assembly could not work for your application.

March 25, 2016
I currently have a bi-fold glass enclosure that measures 46.5" wide and 34" high. I am interested in the Bronzed Iron glass enclosure. I am not sure what the accessory kits are for. Do they add length/width if the exact size is not standard?
The accessory trims are meant only to be an accent around the outer perimeter of the door enclosure. They are a U-channel type kit and add very little to the overall width and height of the enclosure.

from Cincinnati, OH asked:

I have a masonry fireplace and the opening is not square. The top width is 37 3/4" and the bottom width is 38 1/4" and the height is 24 1/2" high. I am looking for a inexpensive black enclosure. What do you have that will fit this opening?
The product in question would be a suitable option, if ordered in the 40" x 25" dimension as there is some flexibility with installation of the sliding L brackets at the bottom of the door frame. Further details are provided in the installation manual.

The hidden damper control allows you to control the amount of home air entering through the door assembly for combustion, providing functionality similar to a wood stove.

I am looking for a glass enclosure that can be closed while the fire is burning. From what I have found so far, the only point where the doors can be closed is when the fire is down to embers. Do you carry anything like this?
The doors you are viewing now can actually be closed while the fire is burning. However, the manufacturer recommends leaving the doors fully open during the first 15 minutes of burn time. This will allow the glass to warm slowly, preventing thermal shock and possible breakage of the glass.

from Clinton Township, MI asked:
January 5, 2015
My fireplace opening is 48 inches x 29.74 inches but I have some decorative tiles that are 2 inches above the opening. Would this door obscure them? I also saw that you mentioned a trim kit. How wide is the trim kit? Does it cover the entire face of the door?
The finished height of the 31" high door assembly is approximately 31", so you would have a little space between your tile and the top of the door assembly without the optional trim kit. The trim kit is only a outside frame around the perimeter of the door assembly.

My wife suffers from allergies. Does this product do anything to minimize the effects of smoke and other potential allergens from a wood burning fire?
This door assembly can indeed help with this problem. Using a closed door assembly will have a few benefits. The doors will limit the amount of air that is pulled up the chimney while the fire is burning. This cuts down on the amount of makeup air and outside dust that is pulled into the home. Having closed doors over the opening also limits any escape of smoke into the room that can occur during a strong downdraft.

from NC asked:
November 23, 2014
My fireplace opening is roughly 49" x 32". Would the proper door measurement for me be 52" x 33"?
Yes, indeed. That is the exact door assembly you should purchase.

The attached image is our fireplace. The dimensions are 48 inches (width) x 24 inches (height). We like the shape of the Bronzed Iron Princeton Glass Enclosure, model # FSD-PRINCETON_BI. Based on your information, the size we need to order is 52 x 25. Please let me know if it is correct? Do we really need the trim kit for the fireplace door? Also, if we don't use the trim kit, will it be the same as what we see in the picture?
You are precisely correct on the door sizing for your application. The trim kits are completely optional, although the default photo shows one being used. The door will simply have a smooth perimeter surround without the trim.

from Antioch, IL asked:
June 28, 2014
How does this product attach to pictured fire place? How air tight is this fire place? The fireplace receives light usage, and the opening is 48" by 24" high.
The doors will attach over the fireplace opening by a series of mounting brackets. The upper brackets clamp around the metal lintel bar and then screw to the back of the fireplace door assembly. The bottom brackets must be anchored to the firebox floor. They too will screw into the back of the door assembly.
The door cuts down a great deal on air intrusion, but some air is still able to pass through the glass panes to cool them. This design allows the doors to remain closed during operation.
The 52 inch wide by 25 inch tall version is appropriate for your installation. If you are interested in an airtight door, I can also quote a gasketed door that follows a similar style. Please advise at your convenience.

Does this have an edge that will lay over the ceramic wall? My wall is going to be tiled from top to bottom and I need to know if I actually have to have this installed to ceramic over the edges or if this will actually lay over the tile.
These doors do indeed utilize a border that would lay over the edge of the time surrounding the fireplace opening.
from Woodury, CT asked:
December 4, 2013
How do you measure for this to fit correctly?
Width measurements need to be taken at the top and bottom of your fireplace opening. Next, height measurements need to be taken at the left and right of the opening. As long as your fireplace is not more than 1/2 of an inch out of square, you would then select the size of your door, based on the information in our chart. You would simply need to look for your width dimension in the "Width Opening Size" part of the chart and the height measurement in the "Height Opening Size" part of the chart. You then select the finish door height and width from the drop down menus that match your opening width and height requirements.
