A heat shield for cabinets is a device or material that is used to protect cabinetry and countertops from excessive heat. It is often used in kitchens and bathrooms, where appliances such as ovens and hairdryers can generate a significant amount of heat. Heat shields can be made from a variety of materials, including metal, ceramic, and glass, and can come in a variety of forms, such as panels or mats. They are typically installed behind or under cabinetry or countertops in the vicinity of heat-generating appliances, and can be custom-made or purchased as pre-manufactured products.
