Custom wood cellar doors should go through a special process designed to strengthen its insulating properties. A new technology, which only a few manufacturers offer, makes use of the Laminated Veneer Lumber (LVL). LVL is a type of engineered wood (made from small diameter trees) where multiple layers of thin wood are bonded together with the use of adhesives. This technology is better compared to traditional technology because of its essential features such as durability, uniformity, and ability to resist warping and shrinkage due to changing climate conditions.
The most aesthetically significant part of your wine storage area is the door. Wine cellar doors are also considered important part of the design and building process. When your guests visit your cellar, the first thing they will see is your doors. In view of the fact that so many cellars are situated in the living space at the present, they are also an essential part of the overall room design.
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.
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.
