After building a beautiful wine cellar for your precious wine collection, you don't want to just have an ordinary entrance to it! The wine cellar door is a very important aspect of a wine storage room and comes in many styles. It is made not just to set the mood of your interior design, but also to seal in the ideal climate conditions in a wine cellar which include keeping the right balance of light, temperature and humidity in a wine room needed for wine to mature properly. All wine cellar doors have certain qualifications that meet the demands for maintaining ideal climate conditions. To increase your wine cellar's aesthetic value, choose a door that's stunning, has great features and benefits and will make you feel like a celebrity while you enter your wine cellar!
The cellar door helps maintain the balance of temperature and humidity in a wine cellar by sealing in the air. Regulated temperature slows down the wine's aging process resulting in great flavors, colors and aromas. Maintained humidity level keeps the cork's moisture, thus preventing wine damage due to oxidation. If you don't have the proper door, there will be wine spoilage or damage, which of course you don't want to happen.
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.
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.
