Wood Burning Stove - How to Fireproof
What's up everyone I just wanted to make a quick post and see if anyone has any ideas that can help me out.
I have a decent sized wood burning stove that I am installing. What is better to use for main fireproof material: fire rated drywall or cement board?
There will be at least 1" spacers for air flow and sheet metal over the material as the heat shield. Underneath the material there is spray foam insulation that is fire retardant.
So what do you think is better to use under the heat shield: cement board or fire rated drywall or 1 layer of both?
I will be using a wood stove flue with an adapter to a double-wall insulated chimney.
