FAQ about wine cellar
Question: Where are clients wanting wine storage built in? Kitchen? Dining? Wine rooms or areas? Other?
Answer: It depends on the location of residence. For a city, such as NYC it will be built in a dining or living rooms. For suburban locations – primary location for wine cellar, it will be built in sub-ground levels like finished basements and half basements. One important aspect of building a glass wine cellar it to make sure it is away from a sunlight. Direct sunlight will not only increase the temperature in the cellar, but also may spoil the wine.
Question: What is tempered glass?
Answer: When tempered glass is shattered it fractures into small, relatively harmless granular pieces rather than sharp shards. That makes tempered glass safer than ordinary annealed glass.
