1, The smallest gap
The minimum clearance is the minimum distance between the sides of the door required to open the door. The minimum clearance is determined by C distance, door thickness and hinge type. When the door is rounded, the minimum clearance is reduced accordingly. The minimum clearance required can be found from each of the different hinge correspondence tables.
2, Half the door of the smallest gap
When two doors share a side panel, the total required clearance should be twice the minimum clearance so that both doors can be opened at the same time.
3, C distance
C Distance refers to the distance between the edge of the door and the edge of the hinge cup. The maximum available C size for each type of hinge varies depending on the hinge model. The larger the C distance, the smaller the minimum clearance.
4, The door covers the distance
Door coverage distance refers to the distance the door covers the side panel.
5, The gap
Gap means the distance between the outside of the door and the outside of the cabinet in the case of full cover; the distance between two doors in the case of the half-lid; in the case of the inside door, the gap means the outside of the door to the inside of the side panel of the cabinet distance.
6, 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 determinants of the number of hinges required per door. In practice, the various factors that appear vary depending on the circumstances. Therefore, the number of hinges listed in the above figure can only serve as a reference. In case of unknown circumstances, it is recommended to do a test. For stability reasons, the distance between hinges should be as large as possible.
