Dwarf Heat Shield


The Dwarf Heat Shield kit reduces clearances by 50% from the back and sides of your Dwarf Stove.  This easy to install kit attaches directly to the accessory mounting points on the Dwarf 3kW Standard, Dwarf 4kW, or Dwarf 5kW wood stove.

SKU: heatshield Category:

Three-piece heat shield constructed of 11 and 18 gauge steel and coated with high temp black powder coating.  Reduces required clearances to 8″ from the sides and 9″ from the back of the stove body.  Made in USA.

The shield stands 1″ away from the sides and back of the stove.  Clearances are measured from the stove body (behind the shield) to the nearest combustible material in all directions.

Stove sold separately.

Installation instructions.



Works with the Direct Air kit, Tall Legs, and Wood Storage Stand accessories.

Does not work with the rear exit option unless you cut a hole in the shield.  Does not work with the Dwarf 3kW LITE or legacy Dwarf models unless you drill your own mounting holes in the stove body.  If you’re not sure which model you have, check the left or right side of the stove for the four allen head accessory mounting screws.  If there are none, you’ll need to drill your own holes.

  1. Question


    Will you have an option for rear exit flues? Unfortunately I am unable to use the top of the stove exit for my flue.

      Good question! This kit is designed to use the top exit out of the box, but you do have some options if you want to use a rear exit.

      To use a rear exit with the current heat shield, you can cut a hole in the rear of the shield for the pipe to pass through. If you do that, you may want to use an insulated tee as your rear exit instead of the standard single-wall rear exit kit. The clearances required for the single-wall rear exit kit would likely negate the benefit of using the heat shield kit unless you added additional shielding around the pipe.

      Alternatively, if you want to use the heat shield kit on just the sides of the stove and not use it on the back, you can just assemble the kit without adding the rear panel. That would leave the rear of the stove clear to accept a rear exit kit. Again, you’d want to be mindful of the clearances required around the pipe and the rear of the stove, and you may need to add some custom shielding to the pipe.

      Depending on the level of interest, we may add some additional products in the future like pre-fabricated heat shields for pipes, as well as a different rear panel for the heat shield kit to use with a rear exit. However, it may be some time before those are available. In the meantime, cutting single-wall pipe in the next size up works great for making pipe-mounted shields.
