How to measure for your replacement stove door glass

How to measure for your replacement stove door glass

Some wood burning stove doors have an aperture which the glass fits into. Be careful how you measure these. Some hints and tips are shown below as accuracy is important.


  • Measure the height and width inside the aperture, where the glass will sit


  • As you can see the aperture in this picture measures 215mm. You should deduct 2-3mm to allow for clearance

  • Look out for protrusions into the glass frame aperture as shown below and adjust for accordingly

  • In the case of this next door there is no aperture, just a groove for the rope seal behind the glass and the glass should just cover this

If you are not sure of  the make and model of your stove, in order to get an accurate glass size,  we suggest that you cut out a cardboard template to fit the glass aperture of your door. Simply then measure the size of the cardboard


Cutting A Cardboard Cutout           Measuring The Cardboard

Offer the cardboard template up to the glass aperture making sure there is a 2mm gap between the template and the glass aperture

Finally measure the template and input the sizes into our Glass Cut to Size box on our Home Page to get a price. This only applies to rectangular or square glass.
