Hinges can be said to be the most important thing in furniture hardware. They are opened frequently for use and have to bear weight. Therefore, experienced decoration owners usually pay more attention to the choice of hinges.
Among the hardware readers, readers often ask me about how to purchase and use hinges, and found that there are many misunderstandings, and most of these misunderstandings come from incorrect marketing information on the Internet, so it is necessary to spread the two most widely To summarize and clarify the misunderstandings, try not to misrepresent them.
The stainless steel hinge is good and will not rust
At first I heard that there is no problem with this sentence, but I forgot the most fundamental: the most important role of hinges is load-bearing, especially the high door of the wardrobe, and the second is to consider the problem of rust. The hinges of major foreign hardware brands are made of cold-rolled steel, which is formed by one-step stamping and has a thick feel. The surface is smooth and has a nickel-plated layer. The thickness of the nickel-plated layer reaches the standard and is not easy to rust. It is strong and durable.
304 stainless steel hinges have insufficient hardness and low bearing capacity, and many of them are actually lower grade 201 materials. Even if it is 304 stainless steel, only the surface of the main body is 304 stainless steel, and its connecting pieces, rivets, and hydraulic cylinders must be cold-rolled steel, because the hardness of cold-rolled steel is better than that of stainless steel. There are two factors that determine whether the furniture cabinet door does not sag after a period of use: the load-bearing capacity and quantity of the hinges, which should be clear.
