The distance between the stove and wall is dictated by Building Regulations and the manufacturer’s installation requirements and whether it is made of a combustible material.
Building Regulations do not dictate the distance of a stove from a non-combustible material, however the manufacturer will usually specify a gap of around 50-150mm to any non-combustible material to allow air flow around the stove.
Should the stove be installed in front of a combustible wall, the minimum requirement is dictated by Building Regulations and 300mm clearance is required. The manufacturer may dictate a greater distance and therefore the larger clearance should be adhered to. Alternatively, this distance may be able to be reduced using a heat shield, but again, manufacturer guidelines should be followed.
