Glass protector, from flying soccer balls? Surdiac has the option too, but I prefer it W/O the mesh.

I see it often on this model and I think the Surdiac as well, keeps the little ones fingers away from the glass. This stove seems to be missing front panels also.

I had a Franco Belge like that and it threw huge amounts of radiant heat. No way would a piece of plywood survive back there! It even had the brick wall behind it so hot you couldn't hold your hand on it.
I suspect the wire mesh acts like in a foundry to shield you from the heat coming off the glass. Kind of counter productive unless you ARE thinking about little inquisitive fingers but not really a great way to do it. Much better to put a barrier around it.

It's big, but 2 steps down from "really big". They also made 60 and 85 lb/hr units.
