Types of Replacement Glass

Tempered Fireplace Glass 

This is high strength glass that is most commonly used in fireplace doors due to its high mechanical strength. Tempered glass is 4 to 7 times stronger than regular glass. Its 400° F thermal shock rating is high enough for use in fireplace screens and doors, but it is also suitable for many other glass applications that call for added safety and strength. Unlike many manufacturers, our fireplace glass is tempered by our custom shop here in the USA on a per-order basis. This means that our tempered glass has better quality control for more strength and less breaks. Generally the tempering process takes a few days because it has to cool slowly for a consistent strength. To minimize thermal shock, We recommend a clearance of at least 4 to 6 inches between glass surfaces and fireplace grates. Available in clear, bronze, and light grey smoked colors with thicknesses of 1/8, 3/16, or 1/4 inch.

Replacement glass for all zero clearance, pre-fab fireplaces and most masonry fireplaces must be strengthened through a tempering process. This is because tempered glass affords the most strength to a fireplace door enclosure while still maintaining a high heat resistance of 400° F before breaking. This is perfect for most fireplaces since their doors are used often and must be open while burning. In order for the fireplace to maintain its manufacturer warranty, ISO certifications, and to-code listings, tempered fireplace glass is required.

Some important things to remember:
  • Glass expands when heated! Please request your cut of glass to be at least 1/8" shy of the mounting surface. This measurement will allow for a safe thermal expansion. We cannot be held responsible for breaks due to improper calculations!
  • Metal screws and mounting hardware also expand when exposed to high temperatures! To avoid damage to your glass when your appliance is in use, please do not over-tighten hardware. We cannot be held responsible for breaks due to hardware that has been secured too firmly.
  • Burning a fire with your glass doors closed generates extra heat. While tempered glass can tolerate high temperatures, this condition may be too extreme for the glass to handle. We recommend enjoying a roaring fire with the doors open.
  • Ceramic glass should NEVER be installed on a factory-built or prefab unit. This can result in overheating and a potential fire hazard.
  • Some masonry doors require ceramic replacement glass. Please consult your owner's manual for clarification. If it does not clearly state that your unit is approved for ceramic glass, you should select the tempered option.
  • Tempered glass should NOT be installed on a fireplace insert or heating stove. These appliances produce temperatures greater than 400°F and can shatter tempered glass. If you have one of these appliances, you will need ceramic glass. If you're not sure what type of application you have, please give our experts a call at 1-888-986-1535.
