  • Used to create air space between the heat shield and the wall or ceiling.
  • Allows a convection flow of air between the heat shield and the combustible surface.
  • Prevents the stove’s heat from reaching the surface behind it.
  • Used to safely reduce minimum wall and ceiling clearances between the heat shield and the wood stove.
  • Included Items:
    • 10 spacers
    • 10 64mm screws
    • 10 anchors


  1. Support your Stove Board 1 inch above the floor. (Rest on wood blocks or similar spacing material.)
  2. Lightly work anchor holes 16’’ apart around perimeter of the Stove Board. Locate one anchor in each corner. Do not place any anchors directly behind the heating unit.
  3. Place the wall Stove Board in position and drill 1/4” holes at marked locations around perimeter of shield, drilling at least 1” into the wall at the same time.
  4. Remove Stove Board and insert wall anchors into each hole.
  5. Re-position Stove Board and align the holes.
  6. Insert screws through Stove Board, aluminum spacers, and into the wall anchor. Do all four corners first. Do not tighten screws securely until all screws are in place.
  7. When all screws are in place, tighten the four corner screws first, then the rest.
  8. Remove supports indicated in Step 1.

FAQs & Tips

How to install wood stove pipes, elbows, and accessories?

Creosote vapors condense in the relatively cool chimney flue of a slow-burning fire. As a result, creosote residue accumulates on the flue lining.



Always insert the stove pipes to the stove collar with the crimped end or male end pointing down. It is necessary to have the stove component’s male end point toward the stove to ensure condensation and creosote travel down only within the pipe to prevent creosote leakage. Connecting pipes this way will result in adequate condensation. It will allow the creosote to flow within the pipe and return to the firebox to be burnt and fully dissipate. See picture.

Exposed creosote is not only unappealing; it is also a fire hazard and a health risk. Avoid creosote leakage by properly installing a stove pipe.

What are Type 1 and Type 2 Stove Boards?

TYPE 1 STOVE BOARDS have an R-value of 0. For use with appliances that require only ember protection. Do not use this stove board for appliances that specify Type 2 thermal floor protection or a specific R-value requirement.

TYPE 2 STOVE BOARDS are for use with appliances that require thermal floor protection or ember protection, or both. This stove board has an R-value of 1.5.

*The R-value must be equal to or greater than the R-value of the heat-producing appliance.

Wood Stove Pipe Components Installation Tips


Stove Pipe Components

  • 18-in minimum clearance from combustible materials is required
  • 24-gauge, cold-rolled steel construction for durability and lasting performance
  • Black matte paint coating that resists heat, surface scratching, and chipping
  • Paint coating that tolerates maximum continuous operating temperatures of 700° F, with short exposures up to 800° F
  • Crimped male ends on most stove pipe components for snug pipe connections
  • Install crimped end down toward the stove to prevent condensation or creosote leakage
  • Secure stove pipe connections with at least three (3) self-drilling stove pipe screws

Heat Shield and Stove Boards

  • Heat Shields can reduce the clearance between stove pipe and combustible materials by 67%
  • Stove Boards or thermal hearth pads (Type 1 or 2) insulate and shields floors, walls, and ceiling from heat, hot coals, ashes, and soot
  • Stove Boards (Type 2), when used as a wall protector, require 1-inch clearance from walls; use wall spacers
  • Combination of stove boards, stove pipe, or elbow heat shields in any wood stove installation is a standard practice
