Door Sweeps or Door Bottoms? As part of your wine cellar door's weather stripping process, it should include a threshold system. Thresholds seal the bottom part of your doors. Sweeps are commonly used since they're easier to install. Sweeps are basically strips of a certain flexible material, like rubber, that are screwed to the bottom part of the door. They tend to drag on the floor a lot which is a problem because they're easily subjected to wear and tear. Door bottoms might be the better choice since they're just popping up or down, therefore there's no dragging on the floor.
These wine cellar doors can be solid wood, glass or mirrored, etched, French doors with a side-light or a combination of designs and elements, your wine cellar doors make a personal statement about your taste and your dedication to your collection. They show off your wine collection to guests, rather than hiding it behind a plain, boring entry. They are also double-insulated and weather-stripped just like entry doors to ensure your wine cellar stays insulated and protected.
A pre-hung wine room door comes to you installed into a frame which you install into the entryway. Pre-hung doors speed up the installation process if you are doing the work yourself, but you may desire an extra pair of hands to help get the door in position and correctly attached. Some wine room doors contain optional wrought-iron attachments which are installed on top of your door after it has been installed in the opening, but these don't have anything to do with climate control issues in your cellar; the wrought iron add-ons are always decorative. If you add these ornamental designs, it is essential to fasten them safely to the door to eliminate the potential for damage to the finish of the wood.
Wine Cellar Door Construction: Custom wine cellar contractors suggest using exterior grade wine cellar doors, which are sturdy enough to withstand temperature fluctuations and keep outside air from leaking in. A good exterior grade door should be weatherproofed and acclimatized to the level of temperature and humidity in the environment where it will be installed; the humidity factor should not be ignored when picking a door. The recommended humidity for a wine room falls generally between 50% and 80%, with 70% being the optimal level. If a wine door can't survive 70% humidity without warping or added issues, it is not worth the money you paid for it.
