Before you begin
You will need:
- Dwarf Heat Shield Kit
- 4mm Allen Wrench (included in Dwarf Heat Shield Kit)
- Dwarf Stove
- Tape Measure
Step 1: Measure Clearances
The Dwarf Heat Shield Kit reduces required clearances from the sides and back of the Dwarf stove by 50%. Instead of 18" from the back and 16" from the sides, you'll only need 9" clearance from the back and 8" from the sides with the heat shield kit installed.
Clearances are measured from the heat source (the stove body) to the nearest combustible material with the shield in between. Clearances are not measured from the shield itself. So, it's easiest to measure your clearances before the shields are installed.
Place your stove on the hearth and measure 9" from the back of the stove in all directions to ensure the stove is sufficiently far away from the wall. Measure 8" from the left and right sides.
Step 2: Install Shields
Locate the four Allen head accessory mounting screws on the left and right sides of your Dwarf Stove. Remove all eight screws with the 4mm Allen wrench included in your heat shield kit. Reusing the screws you removed, install two heat shield mounting brackets horizontally on each side of your stove.
Install the side heat shield panels on the left and right sides of your stove using the included hardware. The side with the holes on the edge should point toward the back of your stove, since those holes are used to mount the back panel.
Install the back heat shield panel on the rear of your stove, using the included hardware to secure it to the rear of the side panels.
