Ash Screen?  RSS feed

So, I'm looking at the woodstove I have in the living-room, and it has a screen that one can install in the double doors, so it kina gives it a "fireplace" accent for ambiance. It does let some significant heat into the room, but what occurs to me is that it can have the hot embers right up against it, while the ash doesn't come through.

What about putting some high-temp screen in the burn chamber to keep the ash and debris accumulation cut down? I wonder if that would restrict air-flow too much, or even if there is screen that could withstand the internal combustion temperatures.

Has anyone played with anything like this?
It will give me the powers of the gods. Not bad for a tiny ad:
