Heat shields are perfect if you want to position your wood burning stove near combustible materials. Heat shields can ensure that your wood burning stove can be cleverly positioned, giving you extra usable floor space within your home.
What are Heat Shields?
Heat shields are designed to be installed behind a wood burning stove, allowing your stove to be installed closer to the wall. Wood burning stoves can be placed against non-combustible walls such as masonry, brickwork, stone, concrete and metal. However, if you want to install a wood burning stove into a garden shed, conservatory, boat or timber framed house, then the wood burning stove would have to be installed a safe distance away from the wall, making the positioning impractical and potentially dangerous. You also need to consider any wooden features nearby including a wooden fire surround or a wooden skirting board as these are classed as combustible. With a heat shield in place, the distance between the stove and the combustible material can be cut in half, meaning that you can have your wood burning stove installed just 100mm away from your wall or skirting board.
Vlaze Heat Shields at Dorset Stove Installations
Here at Dorset Stove Installations, we have a great range of Vlaze heat shields. These heat shields are conveniently wall-mounted and hung behind your wood burning stove. The heat shield is made of a vitreous enamel panel which features a dual skin. The dual skin provides the combustible material thermal protection from the wood burning stove, in addition to an effective convection system, which distributes heat back into the room; therefore, you’re not impacting on the heating efficiency of your wood burning stove.
Installation of these heat shields couldn’t be easier as they can simply attach to a rail mount, meaning that you don’t have to hire a professional to install a heat shield for you.
The Vlaze heat shields at Dorset Stove Installations are available in three different sizes to accommodate most sizes of freestanding wood burning stoves.
You may be hesitant about installing a heat shield as they will cover up a large wall space, interfering with your home décor. However, heat shields are a fantastic alternative to fireplaces as they can ensure that your wood burning stove becomes the focal point of the room. This is due to their beautiful visual appeal and here at Dorset Stove Installations, our heat shields are available in a variety of colours and patterns, ensuring that you can find the perfect heat shield for your stove and your style.
