Americans have loved fireplaces ever since settlers arrived up here and began building houses. Early fireplaces served mainly to heat the home against bitter cold outside weather. But through the years, fireplaces became popular amenities in homes located outside of cold-weather states. Regardless of where fireplaces are built, however, safety is always a foremost concern.
Quality fireplace doors and screens are excellent safety accessories used to keep sparks and embers from popping out of a roaring fire in the fireplace. Any kind of well-built door will provide thorough protection, although a good screen will also be sufficient in most cases.
But beyond safety and protection, fireplace doors and screens today are truly decorative accents to the hearth area. Many styles and variations are available from two of the top manufacturers, Stoll and W-D Metalcraft.
Stoll fireplace doors and screens
The Stoll company was established in 1969 by William Stoll in North Carolina. Since that time, Stoll has become known as an industry leader with a full line of fireplace products and accessories that can be found in top hearth specialty stores.
Stoll produces a large selection of glass fireplace doors for masonry and ZC fireplaces. They’re available in a variety of basic, ornate, modern and antique styles and finishes that will perfectly accent any fireplace.
