Your wood choice for your wine cellar project is certainly one of the things that will make or break it. You have to go for quality wood that is worth every dollar you spend for. There are so many varieties out there so you need to choose wisely. Random decisions are definitely highly discouraged, especially those that are made either at the spur-of-the-moment or based on what’s “in vogue.” That being said, we’ve compiled a few pointers on the different properties of wood you should learn prior to purchasing your wine racks:

Moisture Content

First of all, you have to look into the moisture content of the wood. Note that the weight of moisture in a piece of wood shown as a percentage of its ovendry weight. It is also very important to keep in mind that the moisture content of wood is tied directly to the relative humidity of the surrounding air. The higher the relative humidity, the higher the moisture content of the wood. Your wood option should be one that has high moisture content given the humidity levels necessary for ideal wine storage. Otherwise, it will invite growth of decay and fungi.

Specific Gravity

Next is specific gravity. This is the ratio of density of wood to that of water. This means the density measurement of the wood is greatly dependent upon the wood’s moisture content. The more moisture the wood contains, the denser it will be. Density should be considered when it comes to the manufacturing cost of the wood.

Modulus of Rupture

What does this property signify? It’s actually the maximum load-bearing capacity of a wood in bending and proportional to maximum movement borne by a specimen. Frequently abbreviated as MOR, it can be used to determine a wood species’ overall strength; unlike the modulus of elasticity, which measures the wood’s deflection, but not its ultimate strength.

Modulus of Elasticity

So now we go to modulus of elasticity. This refers to the measurement designed to show the ability of a wood to recover from deformations produced by low stress once the loads are removed. As earlier mentioned, this property cannot be relied upon to show the wood’s ultimate strength. However, it can significantly show how resilient your wood choice is.

Custom Options For Commercial Wine Displays

by Cynthia on August 1, 2017

Displaying your bottles in your commercial wine establishment should be done in such a way to grab customers’ attention and actually attract them enough to buy. That’s why here at WRS, we have custom options that can help you achieve that purpose. These wine displays are designed  to store your wine bottles safely while showcasing them to maximum advantage. Check out some of our highly recommended selections:

15 Degree Display Curved Corner

First up we have the 15 Degree Display Curved Corner racks. These racks are a great way to display your bottles while keeping everything space-efficient. How so? Because of the curved corners, these racks are able to fit into awkward spots in your wine store. Even those irregular corners can still be utilized as additional bottle storage space. These curved corner racks allow you to store and showcase more merchandise.  Note that the displays keep the cork moist and label visible. One row is the standard configuration for this rack, but multiple display rows are also available. Also, see how the display is commonly located at the 12th row allowing for case storage below. In sum, the 15 Degree Display Curved Corner makes a great solution where a 90 degree directional transition is needed.
High Reveal Display Curved Corner
Custom Wine Cellar Option - High Reveal Display
As the name suggests, this type of custom commercial racking allows full visibility of your wines without obstructions. That makes it very advantageous in drawing your customers’ attention to your merchandise. They will be able to easily spot new labels or popular ones they want to purchase. Like the 15 Degree Curved Corner, the displays are commonly located at the 12th row allowing for case storage below. Our High Reveal Displays are available in 4 rows high or 3 rows high. They can be easily mixed and matched with other units available in our commercial racking catalog.
Commercial Adjustable Shelving
Custom Commercial Adjustable Shelving are Wonderful for Storing Wine in the Box
If you own a busy wine store, you will definitely love our  Commercial Adjustable Shelving. The name itself is quite self-explanatory. These units can be conveniently adjusted to accommodate varying heights and widths in your store. This makes the shelving ideal for bottles of all sizes. Plus, when you’re doing a store expansion, you can also conveniently re-arrange the shelves to suit your desired layout. Note that the adjustable shelving comes with backing, but you can also purchase one without if you’re going for a different look.
