Wine Cellar Wood Densities and Properties

While all of our wood sources are structurally acceptable for a wine cellar, some applications call for a specific wood type. Here we present and explain technical data for the types of wood we offer.

Moisture Content:
Weight of moisture in a piece of wood shown as a percentage of its oven dry weight.

Specific Gravity:
Ratio of density of wood to that of water.

Modulus of Rupture:
The maximum load-bearing capacity of a wood in bending and proportional to maximum movement borne by a specimen.

Modulus of Elasticity:
A measurement designed to show the ability of a wood to recover from deformations produced by low stress once the loads are removed.

Compression Parallel to Grain:
Maximum measurement of stress that a parallel-to-grain specimen (with a ratio of length to least dimension less than 11) of wood is able to withstand.

Shear Parallel to Grain:
Wood's ability to resist slipping of one internal part upon another part along the grain.

Density:
Weight of the wood per cubic foot. Determines the strength of the wood, varies depending on species.
