Rolling Ladders for Wine Cellars
Are you having a hard time accessing your wines stored at the top section of tall wine racks? By adding a wine cellar rolling ladder, you do not have to step on any platform to grab the bottles beyond your reach. Custom Wine Cellars Seattle offers high quality and stylish ladders that suit your requirements.
The Role and Types of Wine Cellar Rolling Ladders Manufactured by Master Builders in Seattle
Hassle-free wine collecting does not only mean your wine cellar is running at its best. Another factor that makes collecting wine enjoyable is the convenience it provides the owner.
Floor to ceiling wine racks are common, both in residential and commercial wine cellars. These wine racks maximize the capacity of the wine room while creating an eye-catching display of your collection. The main disadvantage of tall wine racks is the difficult access to the bottles stored high above one’s reach.
Custom Wine Cellars Seattle has a solution to this. We recommend that you invest in a wine cellar rolling ladder, which is also known as a rolling library ladder.
Aside from allowing ease of access to your wines, a stylish ladder also adds character to your wine room. We will incorporate the ladder into your racking design according to your requirements.
Two Styles of Wine Cellar Rolling Ladder Offered by a Top-Notch Builder and Designer in Seattle: Straight and Bent
Since most of the floor-to-ceiling wine racks we install are single-deep, the most common style of the ladder we use is the straight one. For double-deep racking or wine racks with a tabletop, we use the bent wine cellar ladder.
Wood and Metal Wine Cellar Rolling Ladders: Which One Suits Your Needs?
When choosing the material for your ladder, you must consider the following factors:
- The existing theme of your wine cellar or home
- The appeal that you want to achieve
- The type of your wine racks
If you have a traditional wine cellar or you want a classic appeal, we recommend a wooden ladder. We utilize the types of wood, which we also use in manufacturing wine racks. Some of these are Red Oak, White Oak, Alder, Mahogany, Cherry, Maple, Birch, and Walnut.
You may opt to leave the ladder unfinished or choose a stain with finish for a glossy look. We recommend that you choose the same wood species for both your wine racks and ladder. If you are in doubt, do not hesitate to contact Custom Wine Cellars Seattle.
Contemporary wine cellars have been increasing in demand in and around Seattle. In relation to this, metal wine cellar features are becoming a favorite choice.
Metal or aluminum rolling ladders are elegant and sleek. They go well with traditional and modern wine cellars. With proper care, they will last for many years. They look more attractive when applied with a stain. Available surface coating include white, aluminum, gloss black, matte, colored powdered coat, and metallic beige.
Custom Features Offered by Seattle Experts to Make Your Rolling Ladder More Beautiful and Functional
Customizing your ladder allows you to add components according to your desired look. Custom Wine Cellars Seattle offers different styles of hardware finishes, wheel housing, brackets, handrails, and assemblies.
Wine Cellar Rolling Ladder Hardware Finishes
The hardware finishes (handrails, bolts, braces, mounting brackets, and assemblies) are essential components of a wine cellar rolling ladder. Ideally, they should match your ladder and wine racks. Custom Wine Cellars Seattle offers hardware finishes made of enamel and metal.
There are two wheel housing options for wine cellar rolling ladders offered by master builders and designers in Seattle: a cast sunburst pattern and a contemporary assembly with visible wheels. Keep in mind that metal ladders, come with a contemporary wheel assembly, including a brake.
Security Features: Handrails and Non-Slip Tread
When climbing the ladder without holding on to something will lead to an unavoidable loss of balance. However, if you opt for handrails, your one hand can grip onto a rail for safety, while your other hand is holding a bottle of wine. Going up and down will be more comfortable and safer.
- Here are the options for the handrails:
- One handrail flush on the left or right side
- Handrails on both sides
- Extended handrails
Another feature that can protect you from accidents in your wine cellar is the non-slip tread. It is intended to prevent slipping while using the ladder.
Mounting Brackets, Ladder Tracks, and Assemblies
We use mounting brackets to attach the ladder track to the wine racks. The kind of ladder track system will depend on the type of assembly you chose and the shape and design of your wine racks.
There are two different assemblies. For wine cellar owners who want their rolling ladder to be lifted and moved from one wall to another, we recommend the hook assembly. One advantage of this type of assembly is that you can remove it from the track and keep it in a storage niche. The roller assembly is the best choice if you want the ladder to be permanently affixed to the ladder track.
