I thought of making a frame before glass door an install very fine sreening .Screen would slow down ash hitting glass an you can still see the fire .Never did it as my Alaska stoker created too much fly dust for the wife . my 2 cents jack

I think the screen is going to require more cleaning than the glass. It'll be an ash magnet. Just my .02 .... and it won't hurt to try it.

My Alaska came with a screen to protect the glass from fly ash. I never used it until this year when I had to replace the glass. It does help a to keep the fly ash from sand blasting the glass. I clean the screen with my shop vac with a HEPA filter about 1 a week.
