Heat shield


The industry’s solution for heat shields


For free-standing wood burning fireplaces located near the wall, they require an approved application to protect the surrounding areas from heat and possible combustion. By using an approved heat shield system, the required distance between the stove and adjacent wall can be significantly reduced.

PermaBASE® Building Products are the industry-preferred choice and the only cement board approved for heat shield applications. Installation-ready and easy-to-use, PermaBASE® Building Products eliminate the need for field fabrication, saving time while allowing for enhanced performance and placement closer to the wall.
