ClearView Fireplace AppearanceThe clearview fireplace door set has become the absolute standard of the industry. The term "clear-view" refers to the fact that each piece of glass has no metal frame (or virtually none) surrounding it. When the doors are closed, the view of the fire is relatively unobstructed, hence the name. Many years ago, only the "traditional"style was available. After manufacturers figured out how to make "clear-view" style, that variety became far more popular.
Some Clear-View styles involve minimal metal areas at the top and bottom of the door panels. Others are entirely frameless. Some manufacturers have other variations, but there is never any center-post metal areas.
