Oven heat shielding?

Oven heat shielding?

I recently picked up a commercial Wolf oven at a severe discount.  I am working on making room for it in my kitchen.  I expect it's going to put out a lot more heat than my existing electric.

The manual says to put heat shielding between it and any flammable surface.  (i.e. the kitchen counter next to it)  I imagine I could get a thin metal sheet, but that seems too good of a heat transmitter.  Anyone know what counts as a heat shield?

If you have a retail fireplace store nearby I'd check with them.
