Wood burner collar

Anyone know what type of collar I can fit on our wood burner? It looks a mess, so hoping to stall something that smartens it up.

If you google internal chimney collar and look at images there are loads of suggestions.

Yes you can get them , although when I needed one had a sheet metal firm I used at the time to knock one up and powdercoat it , the shape was designed to accommodate the slope of the ceiling so the hole was elipital.

The other thing to be concerned about looking at your photo is the proximity of combustible material to the flue. I believe you need a minimum of 50mm clearance from any combustible materials , so do think of the card/paper on the face of the plaster board , lots of chimneys like that poorly installed have caused fires ! Oh and the 50mm is from a twin wall insulated flue.

@Chippo1- I agree with you ref combustible material and " the 50mm is from a twin wall insulated flue".
My very first thought was "Where's the (Metal) Register Plate?"

@ktc1978 Some more photos of the full installation?
