heat shield above catalysator

The heat shield above the exhaust pipe/catalysator (whats the term in english?) was completely loose just resting on top of the pipe and it made a really bad noise / shaking

So I went under the car trying to fix it back in place but was impossible due to all the rust so I simply removed it altogether. Im now wondering if it was smart to do, what purpose does it have? To protect some parts under the car, or just to spread the heat evenly (like when parking in grass etc)?

To disapate the heat away from the underbody, I would suggest getting a replacement shield. You may want a muffler shop to do that one. B
