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.
Wooden wine doors should have rock-hard construction; by no means use a cavernous door as the entrance for your wine cellar. If you use a glass wine door, it should be double-paned to help keep exterior air out. The recommended thickness for wine room doors varies according to who you ask, but the minimum you should install for your wine cellar is one and three-quarter inches. If your wine cellar door is accessible to children or if you just want more security for your wines think about adding a lock to your door requirements.
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.
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.
