    Swisscave WLB450F Wine Cooler

    The Swisscave WLB-450F, built in or freestanding wine cooler is designed to draw attention. Offering a generous capacity of up to 210 Bordeaux bottles (178 Bordeaux bottles with all shelves inserted) this unit is ideal for those who are looking for the perfect, controlled environment to store their impressive collection. 

    Key Features  

    •  Single temperature zones, with a temperature range of 5°C - 22°C 
    •  Fitted with 2x charcoal filters ensuring the wine cooler is suitable for use as a long term storage cabinet. 
    •  Installed with 14 elegant fixed wooden pull out racks running on frictionless steel ball bearings. Along with 1 display shelf so your wines can be shown in full bottle view.
    •  Full triple-glazed UV protected, lockable and insulated glass door with a filigree precious metal frame rim. 
    •  Precise temperature control with digital temperature control and display.
    •  Vibration free and rubber bearing compressor offering your wines the most stable storage environment.

    Bottle Capacity 

    Swisscave wine coolers, as with most wine coolers, have a bottle capacity measured in Bordeaux bottles. The WLB450F includes 14 shelves (including 1 display shelf) and a large capacity allowing for storage of up to 178 bottles when all shelves are installed. Larger bottles such as magnums and Burgundy bottles will also fit comfortably in the cabinet however storage of these bottle types will reduce overall capacity.

     

    Installation of the WLB450F

    This classic 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 WLB450F has an excellent energy efficiency rating of B and the wine cabinet is also quiet with a noise level output of 40dB.

        Please make us aware of any obstructions and/or additional instructions that may restrict delivery (for example, steps or stairs, narrow staircase or door) within the delivery notes section at checkout or via email. Unfortunatley, in the unlikely event that the delivery is unsuccessful due to access issues and Expert Wine Storage hasn't been made aware of them, additional charges will be incurred.

        Do You Offer Removal and Disposal of Old Wine Coolers?

        Yes, we can remove old units for a fee as part of the delivery of this wine cooler. Get in touch with us today to arrange this service as part of an order.

        Damaged Delivery

        We ask that you thoroughly inspect all items at the point of delivery. We advise you not to accept delivery of any damaged items. If you discover that an item has been damaged, please reject the delivery and provide the delivery driver with notice that your are rejecting the delivery due to damage. Please also send any clear photos of the damage to sales@expertwinestorage.co.uk and call us immediatley for further assistance.

        Signing For The Delivery

        It's very important to check all items for damage at the point of delivery before signing for and accepting them. Unfortunatley, we will not be able to accept any claims for damaged items if you have signed the delivery paperwork and accepted the goods.

        The following steps can help you when you receive delivery:

        •  Please take the item out of its packaging (do not only inspect the packaging)
        •  Inspect goods carefully (all the sides, corners and doors if applicable)
        •  If there is no damage, accept and sign for the delivery
        •  If there is damage do not accept or sign (notify the delivery team and communicate that the reason for rejection as item damaged)

        Once goods are signed for we cannot be held responsible for any damages and the customer is required to prove to us the damage was there before delivery. 

        Please make sure that anyone who might accept a delivery for you understands this. Please also ensure the person signing for goods on your behalf is over 18 and if its your 'acceptor' you are obliged to make sure they know they have to inspect the goods properly before signing.

        Regarding Re-delivery

        If there is no one at the delivery address to receive the goods, and if you have not made an agreement that the goods can be placed at the address, the coruier will take the goods back and try delivery to complete a re-delivery. If you refuse reception in order to have the order delivered at another time without an agreement with Expert Wine Storage on this, this is also considered a redelivery. The price for a re-delivery is £100 + VAT.

        Cancellations & Refunds

        Any orders cancelled after 48 hours of placing the order may be subject to additional fees. If your order has been dispatched, you (the buyer) will be responsible for any costs associated with returning the item. Any refunds can only be issued to the same payment method which was used to place the order.

         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.

        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.
