The Franco Belge Savoy Classic (MK1) Baffle/Throat plate is a large steel plate that sits across the rear of the stove and up and over the top of the firebox. The Franco Belge Savoy Classic baffle is there to increase the stoves efficiency and also to protect the top of the stove from excessive heat and prevent cracking of the stove lid.
You should never use a damaged baffle as it can cause the stove to crack.
