How to make a template

How to make a template –

Another way to get a new piece of glass is to send us a template. This is particularly helpful if the glass is an unusual shape, or is shaped

There are two ways to make a template

If you have the broken glass

Stove glass can be broken for a number of reasons. A common reason is by tightening the screws too tight on your glass. When the fire gets hot, the metal door expands, but the glass doesn’t and therefore it cracks, or as seen below, a log has not been placed far enough back into the wood-burner, and this has broken the glass

Start by carefully piecing together the broken glass to its original shape on a white piece of paper or card

Broken Glass

Make sure you hold the glass tightly together, using a thin pen, carefully draw around the glass

Holding Glass

Drawing Round The Glass

When you have drawn around the glass carefully remove it


Write your name, full address, postcode and telephone number inside the template before posting it to us for a quotation

Name & Address

Once we have received the template, we will ring you with a price, if you are happy to proceed we will take your order and payment at the same time

If you do not have the glass

 Use a tape measure to measure the inside of your stove door aperture and use these measurements to cut out a cardboard template to fit the glass aperture of your door

Measuring CardboardCutting Template

Offer the cardboard template up to the glass aperture, trimming and adjusting as necessary, making sure there is a 2 millimetre gap between the template and the glass aperture

 Finally measure the template and input the sizes into our website under Glass Cut to Size on our Home Page, to get a price. This calculator only applies to rectangular or square glass. If your glass is shaped, please post the template to us, remembering to add your contact details to the template. We will contact you with a quotation.
