Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JeffC My Outdated Fireplace Now Looks Brand New!
Wow what a difference some glass doors make! Ordered this from Wayfair, got exactly on time and fast. My fireplace was outdated with red brick and brass doors. Painted the brick white and added these and I can't get over how nice it looks! Got some matching fireplace tools and flat black sconces and it looks like a million bucks! Take that HGTV! Directions were straight forward and had no problems with installation.

This unit is very high quality/sturdy and all at a very reasonable price. You could pay double the price for another manufactures unit and you just wasted your money.

Got our fireplace screen and it looks great. The weather warmed up so we haven't had a fire but we can tell that this is a well-made product. There was a small problem when the fireplace screen arrived. A peg holding one of the mesh door was bent & broken in transit even though it was well packed. We called customer service and they responded right away. They we so easy to work with. Before ordering we watched the installation demonstration on line and knew this is what we wanted. Good directions came with the product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MAYNARD SURPRISINGLY Good Quality
I would recommend this with the following reservations: I gave this a four star rating because I don't think the average homeowner, male or female, as shown in the video, could install this with the average household tools and/or knowledge. My husband is a machinist and knew he would have to make modifications for our fireplace.
It is frustrating that we were not able to see one in the store, not even a floor sample! The video is misleading. So, I wouldn't recommend trying to install one if you are a novice. Hire someone.
The quality is good and we are happy with it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Hardscrabble Installing on other than smooth surfaces
These fire doors are very sturdy and, for handy individuals, easy to install on smooth surfaces. As in my case however, some of you no doubt have an irregularly-surfaced fireplace and hearth made from natural or chopped stone, and such surfaces require a few additional steps and moderate skill to make the installation work. In the accompanying photo you can see how I installed them over chopped white limestone, sealing around the top, sides, and bottom with matching mortar to prevent air leakage and hold the doors in the correct position so that they will open and close properly.
First, install the doors according to the instructions, making sure to level them and position them straight up and down, but don't pull the doors up tight yet or you will warp them. Just do enough to hold them steady and keep them from falling while you finish. Also, if the gap between the frame and the rock is too great in places, or if the doors are difficult to level, you may want to chisel down any high places in the rock to make the next steps easier (wear eye protection).
Second, you will need a sheet of expanded metal lathing, available at Home Depot for no more than a few dollars. Cut one strip roughly the length across the top of the door frame, and two more matching the height of the doors, all of them about 3 to 4 inches wide. Bend and trim the pieces so that you can install them INSIDE the doors against the rock and just touching the insulation inside the frame. I drilled two small holes, top and bottom, in the rock on either side and used small masonry screws to hold the side pieces in place. Secure the top piece to the side pieces. It should not be necessary to have a piece along the bottom. The lathing is necessary to prevent mortar falling out on the back side while you are pushing it in from the front, and it also helps to strengthen it.
Third, using the cardboard or plastic sheeting that the doors were wrapped in for shipping, cut a sheet roughly the size of the frame and doors, and using blue painters tape, attach the paper or plastic sheet to the doors, covering all of the exposed exterior surfaces, including the one-inch strips of metal around the side and top. Tape right up to the edge of the metal frame, but no further.
Fourth, mix up some mortar, experimenting with a few small batches until you obtain a color that matches the existing fireplace mortar fairly well. In my case, I used one part white masonry cement mixed with two parts of play sand to obtain a good match. Once you are satisfied with the color, mix up enough to do the job of sealing around the doors. About a gallon was enough in my case, and you want it to be fairly stiff, rather than wet, so it will stay in place while it sets up.
Fifth, using a small trowel and your fingers (wear rubber gloves), press mortar into the gap all the way around the frame, including the bottom, being careful to not smear it on the rock itself. Keep some damp towels handy to wipe away any smears that do happen. Press enough in so that it comes in contact with the metal lathing inside.
Lastly, once the mortar stiffens some more, use a small paint brush or other brush that is not too stiff to blend in and even out the surface of the mortar and eliminate trowel marks. After a few hours, carefully remove the painters tape and paper or plastic sheet. After 24 hours, check the screws that hold the door in place to make sure they are just barely snug, but no more than that.
Wait about a week before building a fire in the fireplace to allow the mortar to strengthen adequately. That's all there is to it, and I thought it was a great DIY project!

Easy to install, clear directions. Only needed a flat head and phillips screwdrivers. About an hour to remove old screen and install the new doors. Snug fit. Nice quality/heavy duty glass outer doors and inner screen doors. Close and hold with magnetic fit. Modern, clean apperance. big improvement over the old chain metal slide pull screen. This will stop drafts coming down the fireplace and into the room when not in use. good purchase, good price. 2 day free delivery. easy, convenient experience.

I had just painted my fireplace from old dirty brick to a pure white color and the Ascot Glass Fireplace
Doors just completed my project beautifully. The black doors against the white are just perfect. I love the way the glass doors fold back out of the way and the fire screen is so much easier to open verses the old screen you pulled along a rod.
