In this article, we’ll be looking at the typical width of a commercial wine refrigerator.

Seeing as you’re reading this, we’ll assume that you’re in the market for and want to know if a commercial wine cooler suits your ideal use.

As a result, we’ll not only discuss the width of a commercial wine fridge (with real-world examples), but we’ll also discuss the other factors to consider before purchasing a unit such as placement, price, features, etc.

With all of that said, let’s talk wine cooler width and other important wine storage considerations!

How Wide Is A Commercial Wine Fridge?

Commercial wine refrigerators can vary in size, depending on the brand and the specific model, as each has a unique structural design, aesthetic appearance, and is made of different materials.

However, from our research, they on average range from 23″ (inches) to 31.5″ (inches) in width.

Furthermore, the term “commercial wine fridge” is somewhat ambiguous, as some may consider a 50-bottle wine cooler to be commercially suitable, while others may only consider units with a capacity of more than 150 bottles to be adequate.

Having said that, we’ll look at the most popular wine coolers at each bottle capacity, increasing by 100 each time, from 50 to 250.

What Other Factors Are Important To Consider?

Placement

The placement location of a wine cooler is especially important to consider because it will depend on the type that you purchase. A wine fridge, for example, that does not have a front-facing vent cannot be installed in a built-in/undercounter position. This is the distinction between freestanding and built-in wine coolers.

Usage

What is the purpose of the wine refrigerator? Is this intended for personal or commercial use? This will directly influence the type and size of unit you choose, because wine coolers designed for business/commercial use are larger in size and have more features – due to this, they are also more expensive.

Wine Bottle Capacity

Bottle capacity refers to the number of wine bottles that can be stored and cooled. As a result, this is directly related to ‘usage,’ and will be determined by whether you want a small bottle capacity unit for personal use or a large-capacity wine cooler for commercial use.

Cost

Another critical factor to consider is the type, brand, and model (and subsequent features) that you will be able to purchase, because these will impact the cost. It’s important to remember that a wine refrigerator is an investment, and sometimes buying cheap means buying twice.

Height & Weight

Similar to the width of the wine refrigerator, it’s necessary to consider the product dimensions, height, and weight of the unit, not only for placement reasons, but when trying to plan transport and maneuverability of getting it in position, in your home or commercial environment.

Features

Last but not least, key factors to consider include physical aesthetics (stainless steel or plastic), wine rack material (wood or metal), zone capacity (single zone or dual zone) in case you need to store different types of wine (red wine and white wine) in the same unit as part of your wine collection, temperature range, LED lighting colour, glass door type (tempered or tinted glass for optimal UV protection), locking functionality, and temperature range.

We hope that this article has given you some insight into the normal width of a commercial wine refrigerator; we understand how crucial this is, especially if the unit is going to be built-in or undercounter.
