Master Wine Cellar Builders love to create wine rooms that impress and deliver capacity. Including a rolling ladder into a wine cellar design such as the ones you might expect to see in a large library is a clever and impressive feature to add.
Library style rolling ladders are a highly useful feature to add to larger home custom wine cellars, particularly when the wine room has racking that reaches all the way to a higher ceiling. Custom wine racks designed to extend all the way to the ceiling with an incorporated ladder is a great way to increase capacity in a home or commercial wine cellar design. Ensuring all the wine stock remains easily accessible is obviously a significant advantage for any wine cellar installation.
Usually quite inexpensive, rolling ladders are straight forward to install, and also if designed well, can add a natural elegance to both the form and function to your wine cellar.
Styles & Finishes of Wine Cellar Rolling Ladders
Rolling ladders for wine cellars come in a several varieties of natural wood species. There are also aluminum finish ladders and for these there is a broad range of contemporary style metallic finishes.
Most commonly rolling ladders are designed into in a wine room when the wine racking is over the height that most of us can easily reach.
Generally, when the room being converted into a wine cellar is in excess of 8’ in height, a rolling ladder is a natural addition.
At 8 feet, most people will need a step ladder or similar to be able to get to the wines, why not make the ladder a designed in feature?
With most of our rolling ladders there are options for extended or flush handrails, several wheel housing styles, finishes of gloss, matte, or satin and different styles of upper assembly. An upper assembly simply means that the ladder can be attached to the tracking or the ladder may have a hooked assembly. This enables it to be moved or stored by hand.
All rolling ladders include wheels that are no scuff and will roll about just as well on wood floors as stone, tile, or slate surfaces.
Particularly elegant custom wine cellar designs have individual recesses so that the ladder can be stored when it is not needed. Wine room ladders are ideal for designs of both home and commercial projects, these include:
- Fine Wine Stores
- Office and Retail Wine Displays
- Restaurants & Wine Bars
- Wine Tasting Rooms & Hospitality Displays
- Residential Custom Wine Cellars
- Commercial Wine Cellars
