Heat protection above stove

My unit has a heat protector installed to the underside of the upper cabinets over the stove. It looks like an asbestos pad with a metal (rusted) covering. Due to the rust I will be removing it. Will it need to be replaced? If so, does anyone know of a product to use?
Thanks :wave

mine was the same asbestos pad with metal covering and rusted. I treated the rust with some phosphoric acid and then just painted it when I painted the interior of the trailer. I'm sure it won't be subjected to direct and sustained flame. Especially since I do most of the cooking outside on the bbq.

Incidentally, for the window there, we built a little curtain that hooks onto the outside of the window, out of some canvas. works reasonably well.

Good idea Herb. Mines COMPLETELY rusted on the entire surface and falling off, so maybe I'll try Tremcladding it. Like you, most cooking will be going on outside, so the heat won't be too substantial.

Stove Hotmat

Lainey you can buy the same thing at WalMart. Ask for hot mats. They have a pattern on the metal side and come in different sizes. The one I was looking at was very close to the same size.
