Le Cache Loft 2400 Wine Cabinet (P/N 884). Designed for sophisticated wine collectors seeking simplicity and style, our Loft Series is ideally suited for modern dwellings. The tinted double-paned glass door is framed to showcase fine wine collections in their entirety. Sealed seams and premium insulation provide maximum thermal protection while our all-wood Universal racking easily accommodates large-format wine bottles. The door can be hinged on either side, and is available in a choice of black matte or satin silver finishes. The door pull also is available in a choice of black matte or satin silver finishes.

COOLING UNIT OVERVIEW
All wine cabinets from Le Cache come with a choice of 3 CellarPro cooling units included in the price of the wine cabinet. The 3 CellarPro cooling units are sized exactly alike, and therefore they are interchangeable. However, the 3 cooling units differ in terms of their BTUH cooling output and the level of noise that they produce. Each of the 3 cooling units is discussed below.

For more information about sizing the best cooling unit for your cabinet, refer to our Cooling Unit Buying Guide for Wine Cabinets.

CELLARPRO 1800QTL
The 1800QTL is our quietest cooling unit, and is designed exclusively for residential use in a temperature-controlled environment. The 1800QTL is appropriate for all credenzas, Model 1400 and Model 2400 wine cabinets. It also can be used in larger Model 3100, Model 3800 and Model 5200 wine cabinets, provided that the desired cellar temperature is closer to 60F than 55F.

This unit should not be used in ducted applications, or paired with our front duct hood.

Key Stats: 1065 BTUH at 55F, 41 dbA installed in a cabinet.

CELLARPRO 1800QT
The 1800QT cooling unit is approximately 30% more powerful and 4 decibels louder than the 1800QTL cooling unit. It is designed for residential use in a temperature-controlled environment. The 1800QT easily can maintain 55F in our largest wine cabinets.

This unit can be used with our front duct hood.

Key Stats: 1380 BTUH at 55F, 45 dbA installed in a cabinet.

CELLARPRO 1800XT
The 1800XT is approximately 5% more powerful and 3 decibels louder than the 1800QT cooling unit, because it uses more powerful fans. As a result, the 1800XT is ideally suited for garage environments (with temperatures ranging from 40F to 95F), commercial environments (where the cellar is frequently accessed) and installations with our front-duct hood..

Key Stats: 1456 BTUH at 55F, 48 dbA installed in a cabinet.

CELLARPRO 1800XTS
1800XTS cooling units, approximately 30% more powerful than 1800XT cooling units, also can be used inside Le Cache wine cabinets for an additional charge of $200. Please call us at 707.794.8000 for more information and/or to order.

PLACEMENT REQUIREMENTS

POWER REQUIREMENT:
The cooling unit plugs into a standard wall outlet, and the outlet should be on a dedicated circuit. The components of the cooling unit draw 3 amps, and the electric outlet on the side of the cooling unit also is rated for 3 amps. The cord extends 6 1/2 feet from the back of the cabinet. If an extension cord is used, it should be 14-gauge wire or thicker, grounded, and as short as possible. We recommend using a surge protector rated at 15 amps or more. Under no circumstances should the wine cabinet share a circuit with another motor or compressor-based appliance, like a wine cooler, fridge or air conditioner.

FLOOR SURFACE:
Because of the significant weight of your wine cabinet, it is important that it be placed on a hard surface, otherwise the cabinet may become skewed if the doors settle unevenly over time. If you will be placing your cabinet on thick carpeting, consider placing a carpet board underneath the wine cabinet. You can purchase a carpet board from Le Cache, or you can have your local hardware store cut a 3/4 inch plywood board to the following dimensions: 35w x 25d

DOOR SWING CLEARANCE:
The doors of our wine cabinets swing "wide" by approximately 1 inch when open at 90 degrees. The additional width should be accounted for when purchasing cabinets that do not have moldings, because the stated widths of our wine cabinets do not account for the door swing. Please note that the additional width is required in front of the cabinet.

WEIGHT LOAD FACTOR:
After loading your wine cabinet with wine bottles, it will be extremely heavy. When selecting a location for your cabinet, make sure that the floor underneath is strong enough to support the weight of the cabinet.

TEMPERATURE REQUIREMENTS:
CellarPro cooling units are designed to handle temperatures ranging from 50 to 95F.

VENTILATION REQUIREMENTS:
The cooling unit generates hot air that must be exhausted in such a way that it won't be recirculated by the cooling unit. If the hot air cannot be dissipated or channeled properly, and the cooling unit is forced to recycle its own hot air, the cooling unit will be unable to maintain cold temperatures inside the wine cabinet and/or it will run all the time. Proper ventilation can be achieved in one of three ways:

1. UPRIGHT CABINETS WITH TOP-VENT CONFIGURATIONS
Our upright wine cabinets have been engineered top-vent cooling units and SB/0 Technology so that they can be placed right up against the wall. In this configuration, the hot air generated by the cooling unit is ventilated through the top of the wine cabinet, and the return air comes from above the wine cabinet, so there must be sufficient clearance above the cabinets for the hot air to dissipate, as follows:

2. UPRIGHT CABINETS WITH Rear-Vent Configurations
Our upright wine cabinets can be configured so that the return air comes from behind the wine cabinet. This configuration is useful in situations where sufficient clearance above the wine cabinet doesn't exist. In this configuration:
  • If the rear of the wine cabinet is not accessible, a minimum clearance of 7 1/2 inches above the wine cabinet is required for removal and replacement of the cooling unit air filter.
  • If the rear of the wine cabinet is accessible, a minimum clearance of 3 inches above the wine cabinet is required for proper airflow, and we recommend using our air deflector to direct the hot air exhaust to the left of the wine cabinet.
  • In all cases, the wine cabinet must be placed 3-4" away from the rear wall.
  • The sides always need to be open - in other words, placement in an enclosed space, alcove or closet will not work without our front-vent hood (see Configuration 3 below)

3. UPRIGHT CABINETS with Front-Vent Hoods
If you want to place the wine cabinet flush against the wall but you don't have the required clearance (as outlined in Configuration 1 above), or you want to place the wine cabinet in an enclosed space, closet or alcove, our front-vent hood (placed on top of the wine cabinet) can be used with 7 1/2 inches of clearance above the wine cabinet for removal of the hood and the air filter. Please note:

4. CREDENZA WINE CABINETS
Credenza wine cabinets don't require any clearance above the wine cabinet; however, all credenzas require 3-4" of space behind the wine cabinet because all the ventilation (intake and exhaust) occurs behind the cabinet

Please note:
(1) We count the top of the racks as 1 row when counting rows in our racks.
(2) Every slot in the racks is 3 3/4" and sized to fit oversized Burgundy and most Champagne-size bottles.
(3) Bulk storage is located atop the racks (except for the first row atop the racks). Bulk storage capacity is based on Bordeaux-size bottles.
(4) Total capacity is the sum of racked plus bulk capacity, with double-deep storage in all cases except the Contemporary Credenza (which is single-deep). Usable capacity may be lower by 2-3 bottles when the first few cells under the cooling unit are left empty for proper air circulation.
How do I choose between top intake versus rear intake?

Top intake will allow you to place your wine cabinet flush against the wall; however, in order to operate properly, a cabinet with top intake MUST have sufficient clearance ABOVE the cabinet. If sufficient clearance does not exist, rear intake should be selected, and 3-4 inches of clearance must be provided BEHIND the wine cabinet. Regardless, the sides of the cabinet always need to be open - in other words, placement in an enclosed space, alcove or closet will not work unless our front-vent hood is used. Click on our placement requirements tab for more information.

Does the unit really need a dedicated circuit?

A: Yes, our units require dedicated circuits. When we say "dedicated circuit", we mean that the circuit shouldn't have any items that require heavy draws of electricity - eg other appliances, vacuum cleaners, big-screen TVs, blow-dryers - on the same circuit as the cooling unit. Lighting, computers or other low-draw items shouldn't be a problem on the same circuit.

Do I need the condensate drain line?

A: You don't need the drain line because our wine cabinets are constructed to be airtight when the doors are closed, and the cooling unit has a drain pan to catch excess condensation, which is burned off as the cooling unit runs.

Why does the fan run without the compressor?

A: We've programmed our fans to stay "on" for 3 minutes after the compressor turns "off", and then every 15 minutes thereafter , to recirculate moisture inside the cabinet. This fan cycle is extremely energy efficient, and increases the humidity inside the cabinet.

Le Cache Loft 2400 Wine Cabinet

by

Impressed with IWA's customer service, from communication about product readiness, shipping instructions and delivery they exceeded our expectations. Delivery service couldn't have been better, they communicated delivery time, were on time, delivered and cleared packaging quickly. We look forward to using the cabinet and believe we'll be satisfied.

Excellent

by

The experience of buying from Le Cache was excellent from ordering up to having my wine cabinet delivered. It is a first class wine cabinet. I would highly recommend Le Cache cabinets and cooling systems to any one that enjoys storing good wines.

Very Inconvenient For Me

by

1) the product was not ready within the time frame advertised. It took an additional two weeks which created a problem for me because I specifically traveled from overseas to install the cabinet.
2) upon initial attempt to deliver the cabinet your delivery agents said it was not possible and took the unit away. It was only after I was able to arrange for my brother to be on site for the second delivery attempt did it succeed. Although the crew were very helpful during the second visit, I still cannot understand why they were not able to bring the unit onto the elevator / apartment on the first try. It was very inconvenient for me.
