WINE STORAGE CHICAGO: SAFETY AND SECURITY
Security: Our staggered systems maintain warehouse temperatures of 54° – 56° and 60% – 70% humidity and are continuously monitored. Our refrigerated wine storage facilities are secured in a variety of methods including layered security doors and alarm sensors. Perimeter, motion, heat, smoke, and humidity detectors have been installed throughout the facility with all sensors and control panels wired to backup power. In addition, there are backup transmitters should damage occur to wired telephone systems. Any change in status inside the building is immediately transmitted to our monitoring company and the police.
Safety: A 50-kilowatt Caterpillar generator hooked to an automatic transfer switch senses any drop from local Com-Ed electrical service. We have two contracts for mobile diesel service to replenish the large fuel tank. The generator is tested monthly and sized sufficiently to power the entire building indefinitely, including cooling units, security system and computers.
Insurance: As a Domaine customer, you have access to the industry’s leading wine insurance program. Due to our volume of coverage, rates are very competitive and include extremely comprehensive features. The policy is large enough to cover your collection; our program currently covers $50 million with substantial additional capacity. A certificate of insurance in your own name is issued directly from the carrier, and coverage includes wine stored in Domaine facilities, worldwide shipping to and from Domaine facilities as well as extremes of temperature, vehicle and mechanical breakdown.
