Don’t forget: Invest in high quality wine racking, as good quality material will ensure you have long lasting reliable results. The mantra ‘buy cheap buy twice’ comes to mind!
Wine Cellar Construction
Versatile Tanks’ wine cellars are manufactured offsite, in a specialized factory setting. Being made from concrete, our wine cellars are extremely durable and won’t shift, crack or start to degrade, which might occur in lighter or cheaper materials.
Manufactured as one complete sealed unit, our concrete wine cellars are designed for underground use and are easily transportable by truck to anywhere in Australia.
The conditions in which the wine cellars from Versatile Tanks are constructed are absolutely vital to the ultimate strength of the material.
If the environment is less than ideal, the concrete may take longer to set, or may not end up curing to the expected strength. Micro cracks could also appear. Although they are repairable, this compromises the overall joy of having a sealed wine cellar.
In the factory where the concrete wine cellars are manufactured, the concrete is poured to create a completely sealed unit with no vulnerable cold joins or weak spots.
Both the base and the walls are poured together. This means no joins are required. This reduces the chances of:
- Rising damp
Wine cellars from Versatile Tanks are also engineered & certified to the Australian Building Code requirements.
Top Tip: An engineer’s certificates are essential for when architects, engineers, builders or homeowners require approval from local councils.
