Proguard Self Storage, which operates six facilities in the Houston area, is now offering wine storage at its location near the Museum District, an area consisting of 20 museums, galleries, cultural centers and community organizations. The facility’s new wine-storage area offers a range of unit sizes capable of storing 21 to 519 cases. It’s accessed via an HID Global card reader and computerized coded keypad. Each unit has a slip-in, deadbolt cylinder lock and is individually armed. The area also features security cameras.
The temperature for the wine storage is kept between 54 to 57 degrees and at a relative humidity of 58 percent to 65 percent, according to a Proguard press release. The units have Icynene closed-cell insulation to block air and moisture. The temperature is tested every 30 minutes, and the area features a natural-gas generator in case of power outages. In addition, wine bottles are stored in the dark to prevent any unwanted quality changes and ensure the aging process happens as intended.
Proguard Self Storage facilities offer a range of amenities including free loading carts, intercoms, extra-wide driveways, covered loading/unloading area, and moving and packing supplies.
