When using glass, keep in mind to use multi-paned glass, or insulated glass, to take advantage of its anti-condensation properties. Insulated glass prevents condensation by utilizing a gas-filled layer in between the panes. This sealed-in gas prevents the cold inner glass from making contact with the normally warm outer air, which causes condensation. Furthermore, multi-paned glass allows you to make use of stained glass which is basically just a single pane glass. The empty layers give you more space for the type of designs you want on your custom wine cellar door.
Engineered wood is made by bonding together wood strands, particles and veneers of wood using adhesives. This composite nature is what makes engineered wood so much more resistant to warping and shrinking. One type of engineered wood, which provides better insulation than normal wood, is Laminated Veneer Lumber or LVL. LVL is made by gluing together multiple layers of thin wood. It is a fairly new technology and only a few manufacturers use this in their custom wine cellar doors.
Sometimes the direction your doors open can be an issue. When thinking of which way your wine doors should hinge, consider the positioning of your wine storage racks or accessories close to the doors, and how wide you need to open the doors should you have to bring in a crate or case of wine bottles. If you need additional clearance than the interior of your wine room can offer, make sure your doors can swing open to the outside, and don't forget a doorstop or additional add-on to prevent the doors from striking the wall. Wine doors are an essential aspect of your wine room. Selected wisely the doors can help your wine cellar function properly and create a great first impression to your visitors.
Miscellaneous Concerns: Wine cellar doors ought to come with a threshold, door sweep and perimeter seal. These seals permit the door to be weather-stripped on all three sides to keep out drafts when the door is shut. Weather stripping is a necessity for the entrance to your wine room, otherwise your wine cooling system works less efficiently and your climate controlled air will move into the area outside the wine cellar. Are you purchasing a custom wine room door? You will need measurements of your door jamb or entryway and you must decide whether you need handles or locks. Some vendors will not install locks or pre-drilling. If you want to put in a lock in these cases you will need to do the job yourself based on the design specifications of a particular lock.
