With skilled artisans, wrought iron can have a variety of uses in creating artful pieces. Its strength, resistance to corrosion and beauty are the reasons why it has been an important part of architecture for centuries. You can go for an old world look with an ornamental wrought iron cellar door. Wrought iron grills with hand forged realistic details attached to a wood door frame are really decorative and luxurious. It can be designed to best fit your desired configuration and can even be painted to match your decor. Just like hand carved wooden doors, you can choose a theme or motif for this type of door. It comes with glass panes which are removable for cleaning purposes.
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.
Understanding Cellar Door Properties: Your cellar entrance should be an exterior grade door which is very sturdy, able to withstand constant change in temperature and keep outside air from leaking in. It should be durable and insulated to avoid warping. All doors should come with automatic bottoms or combination of door sweep and threshold (to avoid cool air from escaping), and perimeter seal. These allow openings to be sealed protecting the wines from spoiling due to air leaks. In the case of glass doors, they should have dual-paned, tempered and thermal glass.
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.
