Starfire Tempered Glass

Choose between regular clear tempered glass, and Starfire tempered glass. While both offer a clean, contemporary look for your fireplace, the reduced iron content in Starfire tempered glass eliminates colour casting, allowing for exceptional clarity.

Glass Thickness

We offer custom glass pieces in either 6mm or 12mm thicknesses.

There are some limitations to how wide or tall we can make a custom glass piece. Depending on the requested screen size, we may recommend using 12mm glass with large feet for improved stability.

Another important property to consider when selecting glass thickness is heat propagation, as glass absorbs heat over time. Keep this in mind if attempting to move your screen while your fireplace is running!

When operating your fireplace, an air gap is required between glass and fireplace to allow sufficient oxygen to reach the flames. We can help you determine how far forward your screen should be to allow for proper function.

To make your screen easier to lift and move, you can request handles for your order. We typically recommend small handles for 6mm and large handles for 12mm thick glass.

Handles are available in a range of plated finish types as detailed below, and are installed at fixed positions near the top of the glass piece.

Feet Sizing

Our custom designed feet are made in small, as well as large size and are installed at fixed positions near the bottom of the glass piece.

Generally, small feet are installed on 6mm glass orders, and large feet are selected for 12mm thick glass by default. In some cases we may advise large feet on a 6mm order, to better stabilize your glass piece.

Finish Types

When requesting your screen quote, choose one of our plated finishes from below for the feet, and (optional) handles.

Having trouble choosing a finish? You can also bring in photos of your fireplace or sample items with metal finishes in the room to compare with our plating sample chart in store.

Due to the nature of the electroplating process, plated finishes usually acquire a natural patina over time.
