    If you're looking for a glass look similar to this one than we would recommend ½
    inch glass made up of two panes with UV laminate in between. For a blue-ish tint (ultra-clear), we recommend Starphire Low-E glass. If you have more questions about glass wall and door wine cellars, we have some resources on our site HERE.

    Great question! You should be careful about using glass in a refrigerated wine cellar, and especially about using single-pane glass, because the thermal load impact from using glass is significant, and in all cases, the doors need to create an airtight seal when closed, so that there's no infiltration of ambient air into the cellar.

    You can use the link at the bottom of this post to fill out our thermal load request form. Once we receive your form, we'll calculate the thermal load for your cellar at no charge - we'll even calculate the load using single-pane vs double-pane glass if you like.

    Here's the link - feel free to ask if you have any other questions, we're here to help!
