FAQs

How do you install the STACT system?

STACT is a cinch to assemble and easy to mount right out of the box whether a single kit or as many as needed based on the application. The small number of components allows for easy assembly and installation in just a few simple steps, with measuring kept to a minimum (view the installation manuals here).

 

What tools to I need to install STACT?

All the necessary mounting hardware is included in the box, the only tools required are a power drill, 3/8" drill bit, Philips screwdriver, and a level.

 

Do I need to mount STACT to studs? Or can these be placed anywhere?

STACT is designed for easy and flexible installation. So there's no need to mount to studs! With the included hardware, STACT mounts securely to any dry-wall surface right out of the box in just a few simple steps. If you wish you can also mount to any solid flat surface, with a set of heavy duty masonry wall anchors found at any hardware store.

 

How do I incorporate LED backlighting?

Adding back lighting is very simple to do and cost effective. Simply mount the STACT panels directly onto a plywood board, off-set from the wall by either 2” or 1” boards (attached to the studs) and run LED strip / rope lighting behind the perimeter.  Be sure to have the wiring put in for the lighting prior to installing the set up.

What are the dimensions of each STACT panel?

All STACT panels are identical width and height, measuring precisely 14.28" (362.5mm) wide x 11.34" (288mm) high when assembled on the wall (including the wall brackets).

 

How many bottles can each STACT panel hold?

Individual C-type (cork-out) panels each hold 9 standard sized wine bottles (including Champagne). However, combining modules side-by-side will add additional bottle capacity – arranged in this way each panel supports up to 12 bottles. L-type (label-out) panels each support 4 standard sized wine bottles (including Champagne), or 2 magnum bottles.

 

Does STACT work with all types of wine bottles? And how about liquor bottles?

You bet! Unlike many common wine racks, STACT has been designed and tested to accommodate virtually every standard format wine bottle commercially available, including Pinot, Bordeaux/Cabernet, Burgundy, Riesling, and yes even Champagne. In fact, since practically all cylindrical 750ml bottle may be supported, STACT is the ideal home for port, large-format beers, and even many popular spirits!

If you are looking to store your prized Magnum bottles, you'll be pleased to know that unlike conventional wine racks, STACT L-type panels support both standard and magnum bottles in one compact design.

 

Is STACT suitable for wine cellars?

STACT is frequently used, and well suited to the conditions within climate controlled cellars for long term wine storage (12-15 degrees Celsius, and 50-65% RH)

 

Wine is obviously heavy, is my wall going to collapse?

STACT has been engineered and tested to securely support 2-3X the weight fully stocked with wine, when properly installed onto any standard drywall surface.

 

Are there any limitations on how STACT can be installed?

STACT is infinitely versatile. Mount it any way you wish - connected together or separately, spaced apart you like. It can grow as your wine collection expands. Tired of staring at the same wall? Simply interchange the panels and create a whole new look!

 

Can STACT be mounted to concrete or brick walls?

STACT can be mounted directly to any hard flat surface with properly rated concrete fasteners / masonry wall anchors (instead of the included drywall anchors) which are available at most hardware stores. Alternatively for uneven surfaces we recommend installing via a plywood backer board. In that case simply cut the backer board ~ 1/2” short from each edge of the total footprint of your STACT wine wall (to help conceal the backer board from view), which will allow sufficient area on the board to fasten the wall brackets to the board (each panel including the wall brackets measures 14.28” wide by 11.34” high). When mounting to a backer board wall anchors are not required, instead simply secure the board board securely to studs, and fasten the STACT wall brackets to the backer board with wood screws.

Can STACT Pro & STACT Premier panels be used together?

Yes, it is possible to combine both series.  To do so, simply take note that since the STACT Premier wall brackets are approx 3/8" deeper, if you intend to mount both types within the same column, and if STACT Pro panels will be mounted below any STACT Premier panels, then you must first mount the STACT Pro panels prior to mounting any STACT Premier wall brackets above.

 

How much weight can each STACT Pro Shelf support?

For enhanced stability each shelf is secured with 4 industrial grade fasteners, and when arranging multiple shelves in series they are designed to connect together with the included connectors. As each shelf is designed and tested to support 4 standard wine bottles or 3 magnum bottles, you can safely assume a capacity of 20 lbs.
