There are many types of construction boards available and they all serve slightly different purposes. Plasterboard for example is fine for a false chimney breast if you intend to place an electric fire in as the temperature will not exceed 40°C, which is the point when the moisture in plaster starts to dry up and fall apart. Our selection of fireboards and construction boards are all designed for use in high temperature environments and can come into direct contact with built-in stoves and fires without issue.
Plasterboard is adequate for a false chimney breast in certain situations, as in if the chimney temperature is not likely to exceed 40°C, such as if you install an electric fire which has a significantly lower output. Above this temperature the moisture in the plaster will start to evaporate and compromise the structural integrity of the board.
Our selection of fireboards and construction boards are all designed for use in high temperature environments and can come into direct contact with built-in stoves and fires, surviving the associated higher temperatures, without issue.
