Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Legion Attractive Fireplace Doors Replace old Screen
It took 42 years, but we finally replaced the folding screen in front of our fireplace. The Easton style fireplace doors we selected arrived promptly, were easily and quickly installed, and look good in our family room. Watching a young woman install one on YouTube convinced us we could do the installation ourselves and we were right. Very happy with our purchase. We posted a picture of it on Facebook, and we have received many compliments on the fire doors. We recommend this product.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sizzlack Love the look, great door, but some things to consider
Doors are really nice, seem very sturdy, magnets on the door catches are strong and overall a quality product. I've very please with the end result, but because of some issues I was unaware of in my fireplace I was unaware off, install was more than a bit tricky.
They don't do a great job in the product description explaining that the door has to rest on a flat surface, and cannot be used on a raised fireplace. This would have been important since the firebox in my brick fireplace does not rest flat on the ground, and has no heart. It's raised up about 4 inches or so with a row of brick below the opening. This made installation very tricky, we had to go with an oversized door, and find a way to build up the bottom. (Note: you can buy an add on out there from specialist fireplace outlets that you attach with concrete anchor into the bottom of the firebox, it gives you a 5/8 inch lip to rest the door on, but I wasn't about to pay another $100 bucks for that.)
We ended up grabbing a piece of 1 inch steel tubing, and cutting it to the size of the door. Adding that underneath, along with the riser bar, gave just enough clearing to cover the opening and everything worked out great. None of this has anything to do with the product, except to say it would have been nice if the descriptions explained a bit better than it could not be used out of the box on a raised firebox.
That being said, if you have a hearth, or your firebox is not raised (sits flush with the ground), I'd recommend the product. It looks great (see picture.) I would also recommend picking up extra insulation, as other reviews mentioned, the small strips they give you is just not adequate. Luckily a roll of fiber glass insulation (buy the "small projects" roll) isn't too expensive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by knoxvolgal Highly recommend!
I bought this screen right before Thanksgiving. It arrived quickly! With a few minor modifcations to fit my fireplace, the installation was done in less than 2 hours. It looks gorgeous! I could not be more pleased! I even gave my parents Christmas cash toward a new screen for their house. They got the Fillmore, and are quite pleased. The only reason I did not give 5 stars is that the paint was chipped off the corners of the inside screen doors. It is something that only shows if the glass doors are open, and I will pick up some paint to touch it up someday. My only advice is to find someone who has installed these before, or someone is savvy with making modifcations for installation purposes.

Just finished installing the new doors. Pretty simple installation, considering my fireplace has deteriorated a little bit over the years. Seems like a very high quality product - will actually use it in the next couple days. Very happy with the style.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by jz61 gorgeous doors- but specs are wrong!
we followed the measurement instructions and ordered a large because our mason fireplace measurements fit within the ranges provided. unfortunately - the doors are still too small. the sides of the doors - that extend beyond the fireplace opening - are too narrow, so the insalation inside the doors is not flat against brick, but instead would be exposed to the open flame of the fireplace. We are just starting to deal with customer service now, but will be VERY upset if we have to pay a restocking fee because this was not our fault.

We had purchased one to replace the door on our downstairs fireplace, and we were extremely pleased with how classy it looked. It didn't take long for us to purchase one for the upstairs fireplace. The installation was quite easy, too. We are so glad we purchased these doors. The living room as never looked so stunning.

I ordered on a Sunday and it arrived on Tuesday, very simple to install. Price was lower than anything else I could find by far for a quality set of doors.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Asher Just the right amount of coverage and heat
I just installed this product at my home. The installation was so easy. Once I started the fire the heat and coverage was perfect!
