16-18 gauge galvanized steel on about 3/4-1" standoffs makes a effective heat shield. We has this around a wood stove, and on the other side of the wall, you could easily find the edge of the shield by feeling the temperature difference. The shield should go several feet beyond the extents of the stove.
