    How close can I have a ball valve with the plastic or rubber handel covering to a base stack?

    I have one that's about 2 feet away. I hung a piece of 1/8" alum plate about 2 inches in front of it - it catches all the heat, cool air flows behind no problem at all.

    I have a valve about 12-14" away from my base stack, plastic handle cover with no shield, it has no issues.

    Mine is a pvc valve, hence the heat guard, think I may have misunderstood Toquin. I don't think a stainless valve wood be much concern at all.
