The SMI Aussie Rocket Stove™ XP Windshield is a simple 3-piece slot together accessory that locates on the SMI Aussie Rocket Stove™ XP “cookware support bars” on the 3 corresponding slots. The opening of the windshield (open face) when set up should align with the fuel feed chamber of the rocket stove below it.
Ideally used when heat retention is paramount in windy cool conditions when using smaller cookware items such as billy’s, kettles and saucepans to protect wind from robbing heat thus improving heating and cooking efficiency.
When used the windshield restricts the maximum diameter of circular cookware to 200mm.Effective height from the top of the cookware support bars to the top of the windshield is 160mm. When using large diameter cookware (bigger than 200mm in diameter) the windshield will need to be removed for use.
Set up the windshield measures 210mm L x 220mm W x 200mm H and the 3 components comprising the windshield weigh 1.535kg. The windshield is made from BlueScope Xlerplate™ Tru-Spec™ steel in a 1.6mm thickness.
The SMI Aussie Rocket Stove™ XP Windshield stores flat when not in use and easily stows away in the SMI Aussie Rocket Stove™ canvas storage bag along with the SMI Aussie Rocket Stove™ XP keeping the components neatly altogether when not being used or in transit.
The SMI Aussie Rocket Stove™ XP Windshield fits all previously purchased SMI Aussie Rocket Stove™ XP models as an add on accessory when required and also comes in several SMI Aussie Rocket Stove™ XP kit options here on our website store too.
