Bevelled Glass Fireplace Appearance

Virtually everyone gets normal glass in their fireplace doors. Part of this might be that many people don't realize that any alternatives are available. Others may just stay with the traditional choice. However, several alternatives now exist for many door models. Check the "MODEL" link for the Options chart to make sure that a glass type is available for the Model you are interested in. In a few cases, door manufacturers have gone to using Bronze glass as "standard" on some of their door models, and they actually charge a premium for clear glass!

A rare alternative is Bevelled Glass. This is where a strip of the glass panel along the edges becomes thinner, which creates a prismatic effect. This is often used in Museum doors and some Churches, to create the colors of the spectrum and many interesting light patterns. In a fireplace, the continuously moving flames can cause interesting and fascinating light effects!
