LAYOUT AND LOADING RECOMMENDATIONS

Each shelf can be used as a storage, presentation or sliding shelf. Each of your wine cabinet’s shelves has 13 recesses for bottles thus enabling you to place your bottles in total safety. Also, your shelves all have a label slot, designed to receive the pre-cutcards delivered with your cabinet, thus helping you to identify the position of your favorite wines at a glance.

Shelf in storage version configuration:

To place bottles on a storage shelf:

-Install the shelf in the selected location.

-Place a wooden locking pin in each of the two holes located on the right and left of the upper face approximately 15 cm in front of the shelf: these pins butt up against the heat shaped wall and avoid all accidental shelf movement (See diagram).

-Start by placing the bottles in the rear recesses with the base of the bottle towards the back.

-Continue by placing the bottles in the front recesses, facing them in the opposite direction.

-Continue stacking the bottles in this way making sure that no bottle touches the rear wall.

-A storage shelf can hold a maximum of 6 layers, each of 13 bottles, this representing 78 "Standard" Bordeaux bottles (100kg).

Shelf in presentation version configuration:

To place bottles on a presentation shelf:

-Install the shelf in the selected location.

-Place a wooden locking pin in each of the two holes located on the right and left of the upper face approximately 15cm in front of the shelf: these pins butt up against the heat shaped wall and avoid all accidental shelf movement (See diagram).

-Start by placing the bottles in the rear recesses with the base of the bottles towards the back (6 "Standard" Bordeaux bottles).

-Continue stacking the bottles on the rear recesses (7+6+7+6 = 26 "Standard" Bordeaux bottles) making sure that no bottle touches the rear wall.

-To present the bottles, place them in an upright position on the front of the shelf (Maximum capacity: 6 "Traditional" Bordeaux bottles).

7

W W W . V I N O T E M P . C O M

- In presentation configuration, a shelf can hold a maximum of 38 "Traditional" Bordeaux bottles.

Shelf in sliding version configuration:

To place bottles on a sliding shelf:

-Install the shelf in the selected location.

-Place a wooden locking pin in each of the two holes located on the right and left of the upper face approximately 4cm to the rear of the shelf: when the shelf is slid forwards, these pins stop it from sliding completely out of the cabinet (See diagram).

-Start by placing the bottles in the rear recesses with the base of the bottles towards the back.

-Continue by placing the bottles in the front recesses facing them in the opposite direction.

-Asliding shelf can only hold one layer of bottles (maximum of 13 "Traditional" Bordeaux bottles).

-In order to enjoy optimum accessibility when setting up the cabinet in a mixed layout, we recommend that shelves destined to be used as sliding shelves are located in the middle section of the cabinet.

Note: If you do not have enough bottles to fill your wine cabinet, it is better to distribute the load over all of the shelves available to avoid "all on top" or "all below" type loads. This will allow for a more sturdy cabinet as well as proper air flow within the cabinet.

Always modify the position of the locking pins when converting a sliding shelf to a storage or presentation configuration.

Shelf Labels: The shelves all have a label slot in front, designed to receive the cards delivered with your cabinet, thus helping you to identify the position of your favorite wines at a glance.
