This three-panel Black Drolet Heat Shield is a must-have for people who have stoves and other heating appliances. A heat shield protects the combustible materials in your home from the sometimes intense heat that can be produced by your stove, fireplace, or insert.
This particular shield has three panels. The central panel is 30 inches wide, both side panels are 10.5 inches wide, and all three are 42 inches high. You can configure the shield to effectively wrap around one side of a heating appliance, provide insulation and protection exactly where and how your home needs it.
Our wall was getting scary hot before this item, and now it is cold. Very exciting as now we feel safe to use our fireplace again.

How thick is this shield? Is it steel, or cast iron?

Per the manufacturer, this shield is manufactured from 1/8 inch steel.

I am thinking about getting your Eldorado model and install it at a 45 degree angle to the walls. This means that the corner clearance would be the important one.
Would this heat shield help me reduce the required clearance? Would it reduce the clearance to the back for a "straight on" type of installation?

Normal corner clearance to the wall for this model is 12 inches, using double walled stovepipe. This heat shield is able to reduce clearance to 4 inches for a corner installation. Please keep in mind that clearances will vary if single wall stovepipe is used instead. The clearances chart in the owner's manual explains this in further detail.

If this heat shield is installed, what clearance does it need from the wall?

This is a heat shield meant for use with select Drolet wood stoves. Clearances will be contingent on the manufacturer of any particular stove.
