Cable Wine Racks

Cable Wine Racks

Cable wine racks are a contemporary and aesthetically low-key way to store your valuable collection of wine.   Tensile Cables uses thin 3mm stainless steel cables to support the wine racks and the low visual impact of the system gives the bottles a feeling of hanging in space.


The system can be used in four different basic applications.

  1. Frame systems mounted on floors or solid material, using steel, concrete, timber, or other materials for support frames
  2. Frame systems attached to walls of brick or other strong material
  3. Frame systems inside cupboards or enclosures of timber of other materials
  4. Floor to Ceiling supported systems.


Flexibility   All our cable wine racks are custom made, and the four systems have been designed to be totally flexible and customizable regarding size, such that any width, height and shape can be accommodated, even under staircases.

Bottles facing outwards, or sideways – bottles in either direction can be easily accommodated in any of the systems.  Utilising labels facing sideways is an effective way of showcasing wine, and even bottles at an angle can be easily incorporated.

Cable connectors for use with wine racks – our cable systems utilise a swaging system for connecting cables to steel, concrete, brick or timber. All these cable connectors are stainless steel with very low visual impact and give the impression of a minimalistic floating support for the wine bottles.

Swaging of cable end fittings – we use hydraulic swaging machines to attach the end fittings onto the cables.   This method of attachment ensures that the strength of the completed cable systems is not less than the tensile strengths of the cables.

Advantages of Wine Rack Cables:

  • Due to the spacing of suspended cables you may accommodate more bottle sizes and varieties.
  • Bottles can all be spaced apart for easier viewing.
  • The simplicity of the suspended cables allows for more label visibility.
  • LED Accent lighting may be used to light up your display.
  • Wine Rack Cables allow for constant airflow between bottles which allows your wine temperature to remain the same.

Below you see the new suspended display method allows each wine bottle to rest on a specially designed U-Shaped Rod secured by Wine Rack Clamps on both sides.


It is important that your frame be supported on the top especially if the frame is made from wood. This will prevent your frame from bending when the cables are tensioned when they carry the weight of the wine bottles. Tensile Cables offers a 3mm thick flat support bar to support the top part of your frame. Our wine Rack system is available using 3mm thick Stainless-Steel Grade 316 cable. We have a knowledgeable sales team ready to assist you with any questions you may have.
