Plasterboard/plaster suitable for fire surround

Postby tommyuk2010 » Thu Apr 03, 2008 8:13 pm

I'm in the process of dry lining my house and will also be installing an inset woodburning stove (cassette style) into the chimney breast in the lounge. I have been told that the wall surrounding this stove will get hot when using the fire...

Do I need a different type of plasterboard (glassroc for example?) to surround the fire and is there a more heat proof type of plaster with which the wall can be skimmed once dry lined? Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
