Most of the wine fridge rack and wine cellar rack materials are wood. Few wine fridge/cellar suppliers use metal for the shelf. There are some reasons, or on the other hand, there are some advantages of using the wooden rack than the metal rack.

Maybe you thought, a metal rack is looking more fashionable and harder, even if a metal wine shelf is easier to clean, and it can load more wine bottles. That’s exactly right, but few racks are made of metal. Not because the cost of the metal is higher than the wood.

Just because:

Wooden rack reduces vibration.

The metal shelves in the thermoelectric wine cabinet are common. Because the thermoelectric wine fridge is not cooling by a compressor. Thermoelectric cooling uses the Peltier effect to create a heat flux between the junction of two different types of materials. The device has two sides and when DC (direct current) flows through the device, it brings heat from one side to the other, so that one side gets cooler while the other side gets hotter. It is obviously the cooling side that is important in refrigeration. Fans are generally used to distribute the cool air throughout the cabinet. So it doesn’t produce the vibration.

Usually, the capacity of a thermoelectric wine fridge is small. Most of them are below 30 bottles. If use wooden shelves, it will waste some space of the cabinet. Load fewer bottles.

The big capacity wine fridge. Usually, the loading capacity is over 50 bottles of wine. In order to get a fast cool ability, the compressor is the best choice.

A compressor wine cooler works pretty much like a standard refrigerator works, except on a smaller scale, using the vapor compression cycle to remove heat from the interior of the cabinet.

A vapor compression refrigeration system (which is the same technology used for air conditioners) relies on a coolant gas (a refrigerant) to carry heat from inside the unit and expel it externally.

The compressor cooling fast, but it will produce vibration. Therefore, manufacturers optimize this deficiency through and many methods. Using a wooden wine fridge rack is one of the best solutions. Wooden rack help to reduces the last vibration of the compressor. So that, users do not need to worry about their wine is not safe.

A wooden wine fridge rack looks more elegant.

Compared with metal wine racks, wooden choices are often more traditional. They can also be dyed to match the surrounding furniture.

Wooden shelf typically holds large quantities of the bottle, it also can be designed to fit in any space.

Secondly, a wooden wine rack can also be considered a better long-term material than a metal rack. The wooden rack also being more stable and harder, that’s means we do not need to replace or change the storage solution for a good length of time. That’s the main reason why wood is the most valuable material for making the wine fridge rack.
