Single Temperature Cabinets by Transtherm


Choosing the correct wine cabinet can be a lengthy process. Previous blogs of ours have included how to make such a decision for a general purpose. Whether it be for long term storage of ageing vintages, or for ready to drink wines, we have a cabinet for every scenario.

Getting down to the nitty gritty of deciphering one cabinet from another can be an arduous task. Transtherm wine cabinets offer a fantastic array of qualities, some of which may not be obvious at first glance, and others may not seem like a requirement until explained. And that’s why we are here…

 Transtherm, designed and manufactured by EuroCave come, as standard, with the quality expected by the world-renowned brand. Such excellence is a given and take a back seat for this piece. It is time to discuss the right cabinet for you and answer those questions that may not be obvious when first thinking about which single temperature cabinet to choose from.

 Contemplate Each Variable

When deciding on a wine cabinet, the size is not the only variable to consider.

Location and size of the space

Which size to choose is very dependent on the location measurements and the capacity requirements. Single temperature cabinets can be adjustable from 6 ° C to 18 ° C. The temperature will be set dependent on one of two purposes:

1: For the long-term storage of wine

2: To store wine at a drinkable temperature

The purpose of storage will also decipher which bottles are stored. All wine requires the same temperature for long term storage, whereas a drinkable wine can vary in the temperature requirement. Once the purpose has been decided, a suitable location and capacity requirements can be chosen.

For an ageing collection, location does not have to necessarily be ‘handy’. Bottles can sit comfortably within the secure environment in a garage or outhouse. Whereas those ‘ready to drink’ bottles may ideally be suited to a kitchen or bar location. Many are put off putting their wine cabinet a sociable location due to the noise. Transtherm has no vibration, and thus no noise thanks to the slow-cycle compressor mounted on silentblocs. The mechanics of the cabinet have been designed to combine technology and performance with a respect for the environment surround. The temperature within stays stable thanks to the double regulation of hot and cold air, alongside the optimized hygrometry of warmer, humid air intake. Such a feature makes any location a suitable location.
Capacity

The capacity required is a relatively simple conundrum to solve. Once the purpose has been decided, capacity can be calculated on two factors; one, how many bottles are you currently in position of for storage, and two, are you planning to grow said collection? Remember, this cabinet has a purpose and may not be a suitable storage location for all your collection – that is why deciding on the suitable use is the first question to ask.

Shelf layout

For ageing wine and long-term storage, storage shelves are a great option for increasing capacity. Whilst sliding shelves offer great access and visuals without having the remove bottles individually. Each shelf has been designed to hold labels for instant identification.

Door options

All doors are argon filled. No matter the purpose or location, the bottles within are protected from outside elements, including UV. Doors offer a unique finish and combine with presentation shelves; a feature can be created from the storage space. Solid doors are a great option for simply storage.
