The Fireplace Shop and Grill Center at West Sport in SudburyAdding a glass fireplace door not only adds beauty to your fireplace, it also helps your fireplace burn more efficiently, reduce heating & cooling costs and provides protection for your family and home.

Beauty & Style

Design Specialties doors bring a new look and style to your fireplace. Whether you're replacing an old existing fireplace door or doing a complete renovation, you'll find the door that will complete your fireplace. Choose from over 20 different door models and over 35 different finishes.


If you have a wood burning fireplace, glass fireplace doors provide protection from sparks or logs tumbling out of the fireplace which can harm your family and home. If you have a gas fireplace, our screens and doors add an extra layer of protection from the hot glass found on many of today's contemporary fireplaces. Our doors also prevent children and pets from getting too close to the fireplace.

Increase energy efficiency

An open fireplace is just like an open window. A fireplace door helps prevent warm air being lost up the chimney during the winter and keeps cool air in during the summer which can help reduce your heating & cooling costs.

More efficient burning

Glass doors actually help your fire burn better. By enclosing the burning area, firewood is able to burn greater and produce more heat. The glass doors also absorb and radiate heat into the room better than a fireplace without doors.
