    Assuming you're in the US ; 36 inches to combustable. (48" Canada) This is from NFPA 211 Standard which most codes adopt. There is a section in the standard for clearance reduction that specifies the contruction and air space behind and below a radiation shield that reduces the clearance by 66%. (36" Canada) Pipe clearance can then become a factor, being 18" for single wall, 6 inch for double wall in the US. (Canada refer to CSA B365)

    The diagram in the link below is floor protection, not wall clearance.
