400mm / 40cm Wide Wine Coolers
400mm wide wine coolers are extremely popular amongst wine collectors as they offer the perfect combination of space, style and utility. Whilst these units are typically able to hold between 30 and 60 Bordeaux style bottles, they are still relatively compact in size and can be easily integrated into both private and commercial spaces.
400mm wide wine coolers are ideal for those who are looking for a storage solution that isn’t quite as wide as 600mm but offers a slightly higher storage capacity than a 300mm wide unit. These coolers are typically designed to have an actual width of 380mm/385mm so that they can be easily installed into 40cm wide cabinets.
Whilst 400mm wide wine coolers are generally designed to be situated underneath countertops and within kitchen cabinets, they can also be installed as stand-alone units if preferred. Here at Expert Wine Storage, we have a fantastic range of 400mm wide wine coolers on offer, available in a variety of styles to suit all sorts of preferences.
What kind of temperature zones do 400mm wide wine coolers have?
When it comes to choosing a wine cooler, one of the most important decisions you will need to make is how many temperature zones you would like it to have. As with the majority of our wine coolers, our 400mm wide units are available as either single-zone units or dual-zone units. Whilst a single zone wine cooler will allow you to store your entire collection at one stable temperature, a dual-zone cooler will allow you to store all your favourite reds and whites in optimal conditions. The type of 400mm cooler you choose will depend entirely on the type of wine you are going to be storing and ageing.
How can I install my 400mm wide wine cooler?
To ensure your 400mm wide wine cooler works efficiently and effectively, you will need to ensure that it is properly installed. The majority of 40cm wide wine coolers are equipped with front-facing ventilation systems which allows them to be built under countertops and integrated into cabinets. Whilst built-in units do not require as much surrounding space as freestanding units, you should always ensure there is a slight gap of approximately 2cm between the cooler and its nearest surface to allow for air to be properly expelled.
Additionally, when it comes to installing your 400mm wide wine cooler, there are several factors you will need to keep in mind. You should ensure the cooler is out of direct sunlight, completely level and that it is installed away from appliances such as tumble dryers and dishwashers that are known for emitting vibrations. This will prevent your wine from experiencing any unwanted chemical reactions or sediment disruption.
What kinds of features do 400mm wide wine coolers have?
Our 400mm wide wine coolers are equipped with various technological features that are designed to keep your precious bottles as protected as possible. These features include UV-resistant glass doors, anti-vibration systems, door alarms and winter functions. You will also find that many of our models are equipped with several design features that help to showcase your collection in its most elegant form. These features include interior LED lighting, reversible doors and touch-screen control panels.
Is a 400mm wide wine cooler right for me?
To determine whether a 400mm wide wine cooler is the best option for you, there are several questions you will need to ask yourself. You will need to consider the size of your wine collection and whether a 400mm wide wine cooler will provide you with enough space. You will need to think about the kinds of features you will want your cooler to have, and you will need to consider the amount of space in your home and whether you have the sufficient room to install a 40cm wide unit.
If you are someone who has recently accumulated a varied collection of wines, a 400mm wide wine cooler may be the perfect option for you. It will allow you to store approximately 30-60 wine bottles which is usually more than enough for the average wine lover. On the other hand, if you are a regular entertainer or someone that is particularly dedicated to the practice of collecting, you may require a slightly larger unit that will allow you to store between 60-200 bottles. In terms of installation, you will need to ensure that you have enough room in your home for the 400mm wide wine cooler to be fitted and that you can provide it with the correct environmental conditions.
