Happy Monday, wine cellar fans! So we’re literally in the second week of 2016 and getting off to a fresh start is certainly the theme to stick to. We’re going to do exactly that as we introduce WCI’s products that form part of our clean and green wine cellars campaign. We’re going to kick things off with this one wine cellar accessory that any wine cellar should never be without – wine cellar lighting.
Be energy-efficient this 2016!
If you take a quick look at this section of our website, you’ll find out that we actually carry several custom lighting options for any and all types of wine cellar projects (yes, that includes the compact ones like your closet transformations!), regardless of the size thereof. Essentially, we carry LED Downlights, LED Display Lighting, and Fluorescent Slimlites. But what a lot of clients don’t actually know is that our LED lighting specifications provide more flexibility at a lower cost than incandescent with over seven times the life expectancy.
What can be more rewarding that having the proper wine storage for your collection AND knowing that you’re keeping the environment clean and green as well with your choice of wine cellar materials and accessories. For the record, LED lights have successfully replaced conventional lighting technology in several commercial lighting applications. The switch to LED lighting elements yielded significant savings in energy costs. Now in our case, our LED lighting accessories light up very quickly, from 0.01 seconds to full brightness. That’s 10X faster than incandescent bulbs. They also have very low heat emissions and do not generate any UV rays. The brightness of these lights are rated for 50,000 hours or about 6 years and does not die abruptly. It will, of course, start to dim, but WCI also throws in the guarantee that these lights will function for a full year, from the date of install. Moreover, it should be noted that our LED lighting products are all ETL approved, as well as certified with the RoHs directive and Pb (lead) free.
In general, LED lighting is typically used as backlighting in crown molding, for archways and in high reveal display racking. The warm glow accentuates the displayed bottles as well as other accents such as wine cellar art to maximum advantage. So apart from the practical purpose of being able to read your wine labels without literally groping for your bottles in the dark, these lights also provide added aesthetic appeal to your wine cellar. That’s why you’ll also be happy to learn that our LED lighting accessories come with a peel off backing to enable them to be adhered conveniently anywhere in the wine cellar.
