Wood Stove Heat Shield Ideas – Victoria BC

Wood Stove Heat Shield Ideas Video

Installing a proper sheet metal shield behind a wood stove can reduce clearances by up to 66%, in Canada, check your local code in your country.

  • The shield needs to be at least an inch from the wall and an inch off the floor and mechanically fastened.
  • The owners wanted to keep their ornate stove but it had to be treated as an uncertified stove which require 48″ clearances to combustibles.

The brick did not act as a heat shield so it did not reduce clearances. The  shield we installed reduced the required clearance from 48″ to 16″
