If the width of your fireplace opening is greater than 40 inches, you may need a custom-fabricated fireplace screen to achieve a natural drape and sufficient overlap that most homeowners prefer.
If the height of your fireplace opening is taller than 36 inches, you will need a custom-fabricated fireplace screen.
Before requesting a price quote for a custom-fabricated screen, read and and answer the following if you have an existing mesh screen or not.
If you have an existing mesh screen on your fireplace...
Simply measure the height and width of the screen. Then call or email Carolyn Greene at the Condar Company at 828-894-8383 ext. 224 with your dimensions. We will ask you to complete this worksheet and fax or email it to us.
When sizing your custom screen, remember to allow for ½-inch hanger rings below the rod. Hanger rings are NOT included in the height measurement of Condar screens.
If you do not already have an existing mesh screen on your fireplace and wish to install one...
Determine how the new screen will hang. Do you already have a screen rod installed? If not, it is recommended that you order a Condar Fireplace Rod and Valance Kit.
If you already have a rod installed, measure the width of your fireplace opening in inches. Allow 1/2 inch for the hanger ring below the rod, and approximately 1/8 inch clearance at the bottom. (The height measurement of Condar screens does not include 1/2 inch hanger ring, so don't forget to subtract 1/2 inch from the vertical measurement of your fireplace opening).
Some custom fabricated fireplace screens may require hand-crafted hang-rings in lieu of the standard circular rings. Condar will advise you if hand-crafted hang-ring are necessary.
Then call or email Carolyn Greene at the Condar Company at 828-894-8383 ext. 224 with your specifications. We will ask you to complete this worksheet and fax or email it to us.
