|You can reduce the clearance between the back of a Fireview or Classic and a combustible wall to 18 inches by installing a rear heat shield and pipe shield on the back of the stove and the back of the first three feet of stovepipe, respectively. In a corner, clearance can be reduced to 12" from the back corners of the stove to the walls.
The Keystone and Palladian clearance to a rear wall can be reduced to 14.5" (top venting only) or 18" (rear vent) with the addition of a heat shield and pipe shield. Corner clearance is 12" from the back corners of the stove.
Rear heat shields attach to the back of the stove and are scarcely visible from the front or sides of the stove. The back of the shield is painted to match the color of the castings on your stove. The pipe shield attaches to the back of the 1st 3' of vertical pipe. Hardware is provided to attach all shields.
NOTE: If you have an Outside Air Adapter attached to your stove, please choose the "w/OAA" option. The rear heat shield will come with a hole to accommodate the collar on the adapter.
