GLASS for Gas Fireplaces, Fireplace Tempered and Ceramic

TEMPERED GLASS is for regular fireplace glass doors (pricing is below) and for most gas fireplaces.

CERAMIC (aka PYROCERAM) GLASS is for WOODSTOVES and most INSERTS (call 919-772-8110 for pricing).

Gas Fireplace Glass can be either tempered or ceramic, depending on how it broke (call 919-772-8110 to discuss).

REPLACEMENT GLASS PANELS FOR FIREPLACE DOORS
(For woodstove and woodburning inserts please contact us.)

Tempered glass is regular glass that has been heat treated to increase the strength, increase the thermal shock, and prevent personal injury by changing the breakage pattern. Tempered glass is used in fireplace doors on masonry and pre-fabricated fireplaces equipped with a grate to hold  burning wood.  Tempered Glass is also used in other applications where heat, mechanical strength and safety are factors. If you have a woodstove or insert doors, this glass will not work — scroll to the bottom of the page for information on ceramic glass for woodstoves and inserts. Tempered glass can be use in gas inserts or direct vent, if the breakage pattern is small bits not large shards.

The breakage pattern of tempered glass is very different from regular glass. Regular glass breaks into long splinters.  Tempered glass will fragment into small bits, and the entire glass will fragment (most of the time). Most regular fireplace doors use a tempered glass material for heat resistance.

There should be at least 4 inches between the front of the grate and the glass. Tempered glass has a thermal shock rating of 400 degrees and will break if exposed to direct contact with flame. Thermal shock rating means if the temperature rises faster than 400 degrees in a short period of time the glass can break. Most fires start slow and build, which is fine for tempered.

For Tempered glass, available thicknesses are 1/8,  3/16,  and 1/4 inch, and comes in either Clear, Bronze-tinted, or Light-Gray Smoked tinted.

Tempered glass is also widely used for shelves in china cabinets, glass display cases, top of fish tanks,  and anywhere you need a strong, flat, clear surface to place items for viewing.

To determine the price of a piece of glass, find the height (down the left side) needed to width (along the top) needed. Price is located in that block. For pricing purposes, round up uneven or fractional sizes to the next higher even number size. For ordering, exact size will be needed.

  • Passing the Hat

    From


    Karen and Carl Newton

    To


    Sarah and Will Gilfillan

    Owning and operating Chimney Keepers for 27 years has been a very rewarding experience, and we have enjoyed the relationships we have built with our customers. We are now starting a new chapter and are selling the business to one of our Technicians. Though we will miss the many relationships and friendships we have built over the years, Karen and I are looking forward to traveling full time in our Airstream as we explore the nooks and crannies of North America.

    We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Will and Sarah Gilfillan, who will be taking over Chimney Keepers as of March 30, 2020. Rest assured, Will has been well trained (by Carl!) and is very competent, with nearly four years of experience in the gas log/fireplace/ chimney service industry and over ten years as a firefighter. Sarah, the Office Manager/wife is a fast learner, and will do wonders in assisting you with scheduling appointments and answering questions. It was important to us to find a good fit for our customers, and we feel confident that you will find Will and Sarah to be knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with.

    Thank you for your business over the years. It was my distinct pleasure to have been of service to you, and I wish you continued success and prosperity in the years to come.

    Sincerely, Karen and Carl Newton

  • Is Your Wood-burning or Gas-burning Fireplaces ready for Winter?

    Is your Fireplace or Gas Log unit ready to go? If not, or for a service, give us a call.

    During a power outage, a fireplace or gas log unit may be your only form of heat, so make sure they are working in top form. Give us a call to set up an appointment, 919-772-8110.

    PS: If you do NOT have a Carbon Monoxide detector and you have gas logs, GET ONE… NOW… We recommend the combination CO/Smoke, battery-powered, detectors found at Lowe’s, Home Depot, or most hardware stores.

    If yours are over 10 years old, replace them (there’s a date on back). If there is not a date of manufacture on the back, GET rid of it.
