The Role and Types of Wine Cellar Rolling Ladders Manufactured by Master Builders in Austin

In wine cellar construction, every process must be performed by a knowledgeable team, or else your project will fail. One mistake can be costly and even result in the loss of your wine collection.   

At Custom Wine Cellar Austin, we always ensure that every step in building refrigerated wine rooms is followed thoroughly to protect our client’s investment. One of these crucial processes is identifying the most suitable type of lighting for the project and installing it correctly so it can perform its role efficiently.  

After discussing all of your aesthetic, functional, and financial needs, we will help determine the perfect lighting option for your wine storage facility. 

The Role and Types of Wine Cellar Rolling Ladders Manufactured by Master Builders in Austin

Since most of the floor-to-ceiling wine racks we install are single-deep, the most common style of the ladder we use is the straight one. For double-deep racking or wine racks with a tabletop, we use the bent wine cellar ladder.

Wine cellar ladders are ideal both for Austin homes and commercial wine storage facilities where the racking extends all the way to a high ceiling.

Wood and Metal Wine Cellar Rolling Ladders: Which One Suits Your Needs?

When choosing the material for your ladder, you must consider the following factors: 

  • The existing theme of your wine cellar or home 
  • The appeal that you want to achieve 
  • The type of your wine racks 
Wooden Ladder

If you have a traditional wine cellar or you want a classic appeal, we recommend a wooden ladder. We utilize the types of wood, which we also use in manufacturing wine racks. Some of these are Red Oak, White Oak, Alder, Mahogany, Cherry, Maple, Birch, and Walnut. 

You may opt to leave the ladder unfinished or choose a stain with finish for a glossy look. We recommend that you choose the same wood species for both your wine racks and ladder. If you are in doubt, do not hesitate to contact Custom Wine Cellar Austin.

Metal Ladder

Contemporary wine cellars have been increasing in demand in and around Austin. In relation to this, metal wine cellar features are becoming a favorite choice.    

Metal or aluminum rolling ladders are elegant and sleek. They go well with traditional and modern wine cellars. With proper care, they will last for many years.  They look more attractive when applied with a stain. Available surface coating include white, aluminum, gloss black, matte, colored powdered coat, and metallic beige.

Custom Features Offered by Austin Experts to Make Your Rolling Ladder More Beautiful and Functional

Customizing your ladder allows you to add components according to your desired look. Custom Wine Cellar Austin offers different styles of hardware finishes, wheel housing, brackets, handrails, and assemblies.

The hardware finishes (handrails, bolts, braces, mounting brackets, and assemblies) are essential components of a wine cellar rolling ladder. Ideally, they should match your ladder and wine racks. Custom Wine Cellar Austin offers hardware finishes made of enamel and metal.    

Wheel Housing

There are two wheel housing options for wine cellar rolling ladders offered by master builders and designers in Austin: a cast sunburst pattern and a contemporary assembly with visible wheels. Keep in mind that metal ladders, come with a contemporary wheel assembly, including a brake.

Security Features: Handrails and Non-Slip Tread

When climbing the ladder without holding on to something will lead to an unavoidable loss of balance. However, if you opt for handrails, your one hand can grip onto a rail for safety, while your other hand is holding a bottle of wine. Going up and down will be more comfortable and safer.     

  • Here are the options for the handrails: 
  • One handrail flush on the left or right side 
  • Handrails on both sides 
  • Extended handrails

Another feature that can protect you from accidents in your wine cellar is the non-slip tread. It is intended to prevent slipping while using the ladder.   

Mounting Brackets, Ladder Tracks, and Assemblies

We use mounting brackets to attach the ladder track to the wine racks. The kind of ladder track system will depend on the type of assembly you chose and the shape and design of your wine racks.    

There are two different assemblies. For wine cellar owners who want their rolling ladder to be lifted and moved from one wall to another, we recommend the hook assembly. One advantage of this type of assembly is that you can remove it from the track and keep it in a storage niche. The roller assembly is the best choice if you want the ladder to be permanently affixed to the ladder track.
