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.
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.
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.
Doors that Mirror your Personal Taste and Accomplishments. Wine cellar doors are essentially stylish exterior doors. It mirrors your disposition and lifestyle so you must customize it according to your taste. Carve your family crest on the wood or etch your initials on glass and have them framed in similarly designed wrought iron. You can distress the wood further to give it the weathered look of an old style European wine cellar door. Match your French door with elegant sidelights and transoms. A good stain and finish will heighten your door's aesthetic qualities. The possibilities are limitless but the point is it should mirror you.
