Glass?..... That would be interesting. In regards to covering the heaters, I understand that it is important but not so much to the level its stressed. If you camp were there's loads of dust coming in then there may be a problem but what really hurts the heaters is things like cooking spray, hair spray, and other airborne contaminants which stick to the media. I still cover mine with the stretchy cover I got. Its not right but it works. When I get around to it I'm going to just cut down that cover and get it to fit tighter.

Steve - I have seen write-ups of folks who have installed Olympian Waves in such a manner that the waste gases were exhausted to the outside. So I assume they had a glass panel on the front. I need to research this further.

Interesting because I dont think I've ever read about anyone doing what you mentioned. There is another catalytic heater brand which has a vent but I understand that the vent is to let air "in" rather than out. These heater require oxygen so its important to open a window or something to allow air in and so moisture buildup doesn't get too excess.
