600mm / 60cm Wide Wine Coolers
600mm wide wine coolers are the most common type of cooling units you will see on the market. This is due to their ability to provide a large number of wine bottles with optimal storage conditions. To be properly installed into 600mm wide cabinets, these units are designed with a standard width of 595mm to allow for sufficient air circulation. Leaving 0.25cm of space around the unit’s sides also allows for the door to open without any obstruction.
Here at Expert Wine Storage, we have an extensive variety of 600mm wide wine coolers on offer, designed to suit every kind of wine lover. Whether you’re looking for a small-capacity, single-zone cooling unit to integrate into your kitchen or a large-capacity, dual-zone cooler to keep in your garage, there will be a 600mm wide wine suitable for you.
What kind of temperature zones do 600mm wide wine coolers have?
600mm wide wine coolers are available as either single, dual or multi-zone coolers. This refers to the number of temperature zones within the cabinet. Whilst single-zone units work to keep your wine at a stable, precise temperature, dual-zone units work to chill two types of wines at their ideal individual serving temperatures. Additionally, multi-zone wine coolers are designed to provide several types of wine with optimal conditions, sometimes offering up to 6 different temperature zones.
When it comes to deciding which type of 600mm wide wine cooler is right for you, you will need to consider the type of wine you are going to be storing. For example, if your bottle collection solely consists of red wine, a single-zone wine cooler should be able to provide you with everything you need. On the other hand, if your bottle collection consists of red wine, white wine and champagne, you will need to consider purchasing a dual-zone or multi-zone cooling unit.
How can I install my 600mm wide wine cooler?
When looking for a 600mm wide wine cooler, you will find that every unit is categorized as either ‘freestanding’ or ‘built-in’. This simply refers to the way in which that unit can be installed. Freestanding wine coolers are designed to be installed as stand-alone units, away from other appliances and surfaces. Due to the placement of their vents, they need to be installed with approximately 3-5 inches of space around their sides and back. This is to allow for the unit’s heat to be properly dissipated. Built-in units on the other hand are designed to be integrated into kitchen cabinets and underneath countertops. Due to their front-facing ventilation systems, they can be installed almost anywhere, providing there are approximately 0.25inches of space left around their sides.
The type of 600mm wide wine cooler you choose should depend entirely on the layout of your home and whether you can provide it with the correct spacial requirements. You will also need to ensure that your 600mm wide wine cooler is positioned out of direct sunlight and away from vibrations to prevent the risk of wine degradation.
What kinds of features do 600mm wide wine coolers have?
600mm wide wine coolers are renowned for providing wine bottles with the most optimal conditions to age gracefully. This is because they are equipped with several revolutionary features that work to keep the bottles protected at all times. Due to their slightly larger capacities, 600mm wide wine coolers offer various unique and innovative features that may not be offered in 300mm or 400mm wide wine units. These features include automatic humidity controls, touch-sensitive doors and ambient temperature controls.
Is a 600mm wide wine cooler right for me?
600mm wide wine coolers are incredibly popular amongst wine lovers due to their offer of space, style and flawless performance. With this being said, before deciding whether a 600mm wide wine cooler is right for you, there are various factors you will need to consider. Firstly, you will need to think about the size and layout of your home and whether you have adequate space to store or install a 600mm wide wine cabinet.
You will also need to think about the size and condition of your wine collection. If you are someone who simply likes to keep 8-10 bottles of their favourite dinner pairings to hand, you may not require a cooler as wide as 600mm. On the other hand, if you are someone who is looking for an idyllic environment to store all of your supermarket favourites, along with an impressive collection of vintages, a 600mm wide wine cooler could be the perfect choice for you.
