    Bottle Capacity 

    Swisscave wine coolers, as with most wine coolers, have a bottle capacity measured in Bordeaux bottles. The WLB160F includes 5 shelves and ample capacity allowing for storage of up to 47 bottles when all shelves are installed. Larger bottles such as magnums and Burgundy bottles will also fit in the bottom shelf of the cabinet however storage of these bottle types will reduce overall capacity.   


    Installation of the WLB160F

    This premium edition Swisscave wine cooler is suitable for use as both a freestanding and built in wine cabinet. The unit features front ventilation and can therefore be placed into cabinetry. When fitted into cabinetry it's advisable to maintain a gap of 1cm / 10mm at the rear of the unit. In addition, there is also a small overhang on all Swisscave wine coolers of approximately 1.5cm / 15mm which should be considered if the wine cooler is installed flush with adjacent cabinetry. 


    Energy Efficiency & Noise Level

    The WLB160F has an energy efficiency rating of F consuming 104kWh / annum. The wine cabinet is also quiet with a noise level output of 37dB.

     Installation Of Your Wine Cooler

    Freestanding wine cooler

    A freestanding wine cooler is designed to stand independently and should not be built in to any form of cabinet or cupboard. Freestanding wine fridges require ventilation at all times. It's highly recommended that there is a minimum gap of 3-5 inches from the side and rear of the unit to any other surface. Freestanding wine cooler units should not be installed under a countertop. Find out more about freestanding wine cooler installation.

    Integrated wine cooler

    Integrated wine coolers are similar to built-in wine coolers but are designed to slot in perfectly into cupboards to create a floating, seamless look. In comparison to a built-in unit, integrated wine coolers sit completely flush with your cabinetry.

    Built-in/undercounter wine cooler

    In contrast to a freestanding wine cooler, a built-in wine cooler is designed to be fitted into a cupboard or cabinet. This being said a built in unit can also be used as a free-standing wine cooler. A built-in wine cooler has a ventilation grill which allows cool air to flow into the unit which maintains it's cooling function. Find out more about built in wine cooler installation.

    Noise

    Is a wine cooler noisy?

    The majority of wine coolers which we stock produce a noise level of approximately 35-45 decibels (dB). When compared to other common household electrical appliances, it's useful to note, a standard dishwasher creates around 45-50 dB and a modern refrigerator generates approximately 35 dB.

    The reason a modern wine cooler produces noise is for much the same reasons as a standard kitchen refrigerator. Most wine coolers are designed with a compressor, an array of fans (to consistently circulate the cool air) and refrigerant. The minor difference between a wine cooler and a standard refrigerator is that the wine cooler has the need to hold a steady, consistent temperature at all times to keep your wine perfectly chilled. Find out more about noise and wine coolers here.

    How do I reduce the noise of my wine cooler?

    There are a number of ways you can mitigate and reduce the noise produced by your wine cooler:

    •  Carpets, rugs, curtains and furniture can all help to absorb the sound created by your wine cooler
    •  Consider using sound-absorbing materials during any home improvement work
      When it comes to the installation of your wine cooler, make sure the unit is perfectly level using a spirit level. Sound, vibration and noise absorbing materials can also be placed under your wine cooling unit.
    •  Always ensure there is sufficient air circulating around the product, please see our explanations above regarding the different types of wine coolers for more information.
