1/2 Ton Wine Guardian Ducted Cooling Unit
Wine Guardian Capacity 800-3200 cu.ft.
Unit Dimensions: 33" w x 22" d x 14" h
Versatile and self-contained, our ducted wine cooling systems offer maximum flexibility in design and installation. They also provide cooling for any sized area, whether you are storing in a residential, restaurant or commercial wine cellar.
With ducted wine conditioning systems, a grille on the inside wall is connected by insulated flexible ductwork to a self-contained unit outside the wine cellar that contains the evaporator, fans, compressor, condenser and controls. This system can be placed in any indoor location outside the cellar resulting in a quiet cellar with no obtrusive equipment taking up valuable racking space. Ducted wine room systems are ideal for larger private or commercial wine cellars.
All Wine Guardian Ducted units also include a Remote Interface Controller, 1 Supply Duct Collar, 1 Return Duct Collar
