What should I pay attention to when installing the wine cooler
When you choose a built-in wine cooler, it is important to take a few things into account.
Correct niche dimensions
Before purchasing, pay close attention to the external dimensions of the built-in wine fridge and the niche dimensions of your (existing) kitchen. In principle, our wine climate cabinets suitable for installation have dimensions that take the standard niche dimensions into account. Nevertheless, it is important to always measure niche dimensions.
Accurately measure the height of the niche. This is the inside of the space between which the climate cabinet will be placed. Niche dimensions of kitchens are standardized dimensions but also measure the width and depth for verification. The standard niche width for kitchens is 60 centimetres, but there may be minor differences.
A small margin is needed so that the wine climate cabinet can be slid into the niche. When measuring the depth, allow for a little extra play. Equipment should not be placed flush against the back wall for ventilation purposes.
Find the right built-in wine cooler
Now that the niche dimensions are known, you can find the suitable models on our product page – possibly with the help of the filter. Always tick the box for “Compressor with fan” for refrigeration. This filters out the models that are not suitable for installation. Please note that this only applies to our own webshop since our climate cabinets with compressors are suitable for both free-standing installation and installation. This can differ per brand / webshop.
The height of the wine climate cabinet can always be adjusted slightly (max. 2 cm) with the help of the adjustable feet. The height indicated in the specifications is the minimum height. The indicated depth is the depth excluding the handle.
Make sure that the wine cooler at the back can be connected to the power network.
