Mesh/Screen for front of media cabinet to help with ventilation

Tearitup

This has probably been asked 600 times I am sure, but I don't even know what to search for. My media cabinet has holes for ventilation in the rear, but the top and front of it are glass. It heats up dramatically, since I have a computer sitting on its side on the bottom of one side, and on the other is my Onkyo 5.1 receiver. I am getting an Xbox One X this coming week and would rather not put it in the boiling hot cabinet. When I open the doors, the heat is a non issue - so what I am wanting to do is to replace the glass in the cabinet doors with some sort of mesh, or maybe some perforated metal.

 

The dimensions I would need would be 13 1/2" high x 17 1/4" wide x 1/4" thick.

 

Any suggestions or tips are welcome! - if it weren't for my kids (and my niece that comes to visit) I would just take the doors off altogether. 

 

Thanks all!

Can you install a fan to the rear ventilation? A bit of active cooling could help your problem. But Maybe not as much as just creating more passive vents in the front or side, and It might be louder.

I've considered adding a 140mm fan to each side in the past, but I think the main issue that needs to be addressed is a lack of ventilation in the front.
