You can also stagger the cells slightly to increase the gap.
I usually use cardboard,masking tape or 1/64 ply as a mechanical barrier there.
Something that heat won't effect.I usually put a strip of masking tape between the rows of cells for the same reason.
Without it if the pack ever gets hot the heat shrink can split and the whole thing shorts out.
The higher tech solution is Kapton tape.
