Everyone must have seen the cabinet hinge. It is a very common component, but it can play a critical role. In order to better install the cabinet hinge, we should learn some installation methods and adjustment skills so that it can better play its role. RONGTAI will introduce you to how to install the cabinet hinge today.
(1) Full cover: The door completely covers the side panels of the cabinet. There is a clearance between them to facilitate the safe opening of the door.
2) Half cover: In this case, the two doors share one side panel. There is a required minimum total clearance between them. The covering distance of each door is correspondingly reduced, and the cabinet hinge with bent arms is required.
(3) Hidden inside: In this case, the door is located in the cabinet and beside the side panel of the cabinet. It also needs a clearance so that the door can be opened safely. A cabinet hinge with a very curved arm is required.
The C distance. It refers to the distance between the edge of the door and the edge of the hinge cup hole. The maximum C size available for each type of cabinet hinge varies from different models, such as soft cabinet hinges. The larger the C distance, the smaller the minimum clearance.
The minimum clearance. It refers to the minimum distance from the side of the door required to open the door. It is determined by the C distance, door thickness and type. When the door edge is rounded, the minimum clearance is reduced accordingly.
The number of hinges required for each door. The width of the door, the height of the door, and the material quality of the door are the determining factors of the quantity required for each door. In practice, factors vary from different situations.
The door coverage distance. It refers to the distance the door covers the side panels.
The minimum clearance of the half door. When two doors share a side panel, the total clearance required should be twice the minimum clearance so that both doors can be opened at the same time.
The clearance. It refers to the distance from the outside of the door to the outside of the cabinet when it is fully covered. In the case of a half cover, it refers to the distance between two doors. In the case of an inner door, it refers to the distance from the outside of the door to the inside of the cabinet side panel.
When the screw turns to the right, the door coverage distance becomes smaller, and when the screw turns to the left, the door coverage distance becomes larger. The height of the cabinet hinge base can be adjusted accurately by directly and continuously adjusting the eccentric screw. In addition to the common three-dimensional adjustments, some cabinet hinges can also adjust the opening force of the door. In general, with the tall and heavy door required for the most powerful as the basis, it is necessary to adjust the spring force when applied to narrow doors and glass doors. One turn of the cabinet hinge adjustment screw can reduce the spring force to 50%.
The cabinet hinge is widely used in our daily life since it is inseparable in many places. The installation method of the cabinet hinge is not difficult, and it can be done at home. You can follow the method taught by RONGTAI and learn some techniques for adjusting the cabinet hinge so that you can better install it.
