How To Choose Hardware Fittings?

April 12,2022

The normal use of various functions of the cabinet is inseparable from the support of various hardware accessories. The quality of hardware accessories often affects the use experience of the cabinet. If inferior accessories are used, problems such as poor opening and loud noise are likely to occur, which will greatly reduce the comfort of use. Then, how to choose hardware fittings?




The cabinet is made of rolled steel, and the surface is almost smooth. Moreover, due to the thick coating on the surface, it is not easy to rust, strong and durable, strong load-bearing capacity, and the cabinet door can be stretched freely, so the door will not be closed tightly. The inferior hinge is generally welded from thin iron sheet, which has little rebound force. If it is used for a long time, it will lose its elasticity, resulting in the cabinet door not being closed tightly or even cracking.


Hand Feel


Hinges with different advantages and disadvantages have different hand feel. Hinges with excellent quality have relatively soft force when opening the cabinet door. They will automatically rebound when closed to 15 degrees, and the rebound force is very uniform. Poor quality hinges have short service life and are easy to fall off. For example, cabinet doors and hanging cabinets fall off, which are mostly caused by poor hinge quality.


  1. Slide: if the hinge is the heart of the cabinet, then the slide is the kidney. Whether those large and small drawers can be pushed and pulled freely and smoothly and how to bear the load depends on the support of the slide rail. From the current technology, the bottom slide rail is better than the side slide rail, and the overall connection with the drawer is better than the three-point connection. The material, principle, structure and technology of drawer slide rail vary greatly. The high-quality slide rail has small resistance, long service life and smooth drawer.
  2. Steel: how much the drawer can bear mainly depends on the steel of the track. The steel thickness of drawers of different specifications is different, and the bearing is also different. When purchasing, you can pull out the drawer and press it slightly with your hand to see if it will loosen, rattle or turn over.
  3. Pressure device: in the cabinet hardware accessories, in addition to the slide rail, closely related drawers and hinges, there are many hardware parts of pneumatic and hydraulic devices. These accessories are produced to adapt to the developing and changing cabinet design methods. They are mainly used for flap upper door and vertical lifting door. Some devices have three or more braking positions, also known as "random stop". The cabinet with pressure device is labor-saving and quiet, which is very suitable for the elderly.
