The hinges are mainly installed on doors, windows and cabinets. According to the material classification, they are mainly divided into stainless steel hinges and iron hinges; hydraulic hinges (also known as damping hinges) have appeared for better enjoyment.
How to choose a high-quality hinges?
Look at the material and weight
Almost all cabinet hinges use cold-rolled steel, which is formed by one press. Moreover, due to the thick plating on the surface, it is strong and durable, has a strong load bearing capacity, and is not easy to rust. Inferior hinges are generally made of thin iron sheet welded, with little resilience, and a longer time will cause cracking.
Different hinges feel different when used. High-quality hinges have a softer force when opening the cabinet, and will automatically rebound when closed to 15 degrees, and the rebound force is very uniform. Consumers can open and close cabinet doors when purchasing, to experience the feel.
Attention to detail
The details can tell whether the hinge is good. The high-quality hinges have a smooth surface and even achieve a silent effect in design. Inferior hinges are generally made of cheap metal such as thin iron sheet, and have a harsh sound.
