How to purchase hinges

Weigh the weight based on the material
The quality of the hinge is poor, and the cabinet door can easily swing back and forth after being used for a long time, causing looseness and sagging. Almost all cabinet hardware of major brands are made of cold-rolled steel, which is stamped into shape in one go, with a thick feel and a smooth surface. Moreover, due to the thick surface coating, it is not easy to rust, sturdy and durable, and has strong load-bearing capacity. Poor quality hinges are generally welded with thin iron sheet, with almost no rebound force. If used for a little longer, they will lose their elasticity, leading to the cabinet door not being tightly closed and even cracking.
Experience the touch
Hinges with different advantages and disadvantages have different tactile sensations when used. High quality hinges have a softer force when opening cabinet doors, and automatically rebound when closed to 15 degrees, with a very uniform rebound force. Consumers can open and close cabinet doors multiple times during purchase to experience the feel.
Observing details
Details can indicate whether the product is excellent, thereby confirming whether the quality is outstanding. The hardware used in high-quality wardrobe hardware has a thick feel, smooth surface, and even achieves a silent effect in design. Poor quality hardware components are generally made of cheap metals such as thin iron sheet, and cabinet doors may stretch and make a harsh sound.
When selecting hinges, attention should be paid to the reset performance of the hinge spring, in addition to visual inspection and smooth surface feel. The quality of the reed also determines the opening angle of the door panel, and high-quality reed can make the opening angle exceed 90 degrees.
The hinge can be opened 95 degrees, and both sides of the hinge can be pressed firmly by hand to observe that the supporting spring plate is not deformed or broken. A very sturdy product is of qualified quality. Poor quality hinges have a short service life and are prone to detachment, such as cabinet doors and hanging cabinets falling off, often caused by poor quality hinges.
