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.

Wrong Sub-Forum


You've posted in the conversion project sub-forum, when I bet general discussion is much better suited for the topic.

My personal opinion on the process for building the wall for your stove is cement board, but I don't know the long-term stability of it in a vibrating bus.

Others will surely be more likely to chime in.
