Safe material for built in oven

Hi all,

I am building a cabinet for a built in oven and I am wondering what materials are safe to use in terms of heat resistance? Instructions say it must resist 90c(194f). Was thinking of using particle board from an old office cabinet/desk, would this be safe? MDF is another option, but I've heard there are different types.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks all.

Most cabinets are made of particle board or plywood, the oven should have min clearance requirements, back, top, sides. Our oven/micro is in a big cabinet so don't need anything exotic.

Different manufacturers have different requirements.
If you post the model number for the oven we can bring up the installation guidelines.

Hi,
Thanks for this. I think I'm okay on the clearances, just hoping the material itself is sufficiently heat resistant.
It's an Indesit DFW 5530 IX UK.

Cheers.
