Wood Burning Stove Heat Shield
Wood stove wall boards are constructed from a number of fire-resistant materials such as: concrete, tile, slate, glass, limestone, or resin. Stove boards come in many decorative styles, They are classified in one of two types. Type 1 are considered "Fire Resistant" and protect against damage from flying embers. Type 2 stove boards add "Heat Resistance" and are used as thermal protection for walls and floors around and beneath a word stove. Type 2 stove boards tested to meet UL1618 safety standards for wall protection.
How to Install Stove Board - Spacer Kit?
You should install a stove board spacer kit on the wall where you want the stove board. The spacer kit is attached to the wall, not to the stove board because screwing into the wall board would compromise it's integrity. The wall board will attach to the wall resting on "L" brackets and rest up against the spacer kit. This will provide a space of 1" behind the wall board for air flow and additional insulation for the wall
What is Stove Board Made Of?
Options for stove board construction include materials such as concrete, tile, slate, glass, limestone, or resin. Each material has a different level of thermal resistance or R- value. The higher the R-value, the more resistant a stove board is to heat transference. Make sure that the R-value and thickness of your stove board meets all applicable safety standards and the stove manufacturer's recommendations for your specific application. The different materials allow you to customize the look of your stove, but the overriding concern is to find something flame and heat resistant.
Installing a stove board with an air space between it and the wall provides increased thermal protection and can help reduce the material thickness required for the stove board and the clearance requirements to combustible surfaces required for the wood stove.
