Fireplace guard?

We have an electric fireplace that also sends out heat. The problem is it's below a slide out drawer which gets very hot. Is there a shield that can be applied to direct the heat more into the room and away from the drawer?

Same here. I haven't found anything. I keep a lot of ammo in that drawer and so far, no problem except that the drawer slides fall apart.

Maybe cover the bottom of the drawer with some aluminum foil tape like they use on heat ducts..

Look for chimney heat shield. Had to use in houses growing up. Saw a tape adhesive on Amazon that would probably work for about $25. If I understood your problem correctly.

Had a similar issue with the cabinets next to the furnace. What i used was some of the foil backed bubble wrap insulation. Like the link below. I'd just cut to size and then tape into place
