Frequently asked questions

We hope our website has a large amount of information about the VintageView range, there are some answers to common questions below, but if you want to know more about any of the products or just want some help, please feel free to get in touch (contact page).

Why VintageView?

From the original and innovative W Series label forward racks, the VintageView range has grown to include an array of choices for fitting wine collections, small and large, into your space – all designed with a mix of modularity and style, so you can find the perfect solution for your needs. With this choice of size, capacity and layout, wall, frame mounted or freestanding, all designed to easily fit together, we are sure the range has something for everyone – limited only by your imagination.

What are the racks made of?

The racks are all manufactured to exacting commercial standards, using either high grade steel or for the Vino series, aluminium. The range has a growing variety of finish options: from the original powder-coated matte black and brushed nickel in the W Series, to the aluminium, black and new golden bronze and gun metal options for the Vino Series. The factory follows strict manufacturing and quality control guidelines, with all items in the range backed by a lifetime guarantee (terms apply).


Will the racks fit my space?

With so many choices, we are confident you can find a solution to nearly all spaces, whatever their size or shape. The W Series starts at a simple 1 bottle high x 1 deep rack, with options of 3, 6, 9 and 12 high – all then in 1, 2 and 3 deep varieties.

With the Vino Series, from a single bottle starter pack, you can fill the available space in layouts as suits your imagination – from small gaps to whole wall displays.
Of course our racks are designed to be modular and easily combine across the range, so with a mix-and-match approach it’s easy to fill all the available space in a stylish and practical display.
We are happy to assist in deciding which racks may best suit your space, if you have some ideas we can offer simple CAD drawings to help visualise your project – please feel free to get in touch.

What are the recommended fixings for different surfaces?

All racks in the VintageView range come with installation instructions and a pack of fixings for that type of product, but you will need to be sure you use the correct type of anchor for your application. For wall mounted products, a choice of wood or cavity fixings are available, these are of standard type, nothing special is generally required, but again you need to check your particular surface and use appropriate hardware as necessary.

Our design page has copies of installation instructions, links to some online install video guides – and coming soon, links to help via the BuildIt app, a 3D interactive step-by-step install guide. Of course, we are happy to help with any specific enquiries you may have (via our contact page).

Can I fix my racks to a plasterboard wall?

Yes. Even though plasterboard may be the ‘weakest’ of all wall materials, it is so common that we have found most of our home installations are likely to be on this type of wall. In all the thousands of installations using our racks across the world, there has never been a single reported case of racks falling off a wall, it just needs a little care with the choice of fixing.

The most common and effective fixing is the spring toggle (or butterfly) anchor, which is designed to spread out into the cavity behind the wall, making a secure support for heavier items. A set of these cavity bolts + some spiral fixings are included in most of our wall-mounted ranges. If you are unsure, you can also check with a local DIY or hardware store to see what they may have.
