Fireplace Glass Door Materials - Steel

Tuesday, December 9, 2008 Posted by Stephanie H.
When purchasing fireplace glass doors, one of the most important features to consider is the material that they are made of.

Steel is used in the fabrication of fireplace doors because of a few unique benefits that steel provides. Steel can be finished using a number of different methods, including the powder coat finish. Steel is also very durable and able to withstand the temperature fluctuations of the firebox. Other door frames made of lesser material may expand and contract with the change in temperature. In some instances, when the frame becomes too hot, the metal will expand and the doors will not open. In a worst-case scenario, the frame could be permanently altered or cracked.

Because of the durability of the material and the ability to apply a finish using multiple methods, steel is considered the optimum material for a fireplace glass door and is well worth the added cost.
