Damping hinge is a kind of hinge, which is composed of three parts: support and buffer. Its essence is to provide a way to use the cushioning properties of liquids to produce effects and give us help. In our daily life, it can be said that damping hinges can be seen everywhere, such as the door connections of wardrobes, bookcases, wine cabinets, storage cabinets and other furniture. Although it is a common thing in our lives, I don't know if everyone has installed it by hand. Do you know the specific installation method of the damping hinge?
There are basically three different installation methods
1. Full cover
The door completely covers the side panels of the cabinet, and there is a gap between the two so that the door can be opened safely. Straight arm 0 mm
2. Half cover
In this case, the two doors share one side panel. There is a required minimum total gap between them. The covering distance of each door is correspondingly reduced, requiring the use of hinges with bent arms. Mid song (9.5mm)
In this case, the door is located inside the cabinet, next to the cabinet side panel. It also needs a gap so that the door can be opened safely. A hinge with a very curved arm is required. Daqu (16mm)
Hinge installation knowledge:
1. Minimum gap
The minimum clearance refers to the minimum distance from the side of the door required to open the door. The minimum clearance is determined by the C distance, door thickness and hinge type. When the door edge is rounded, the minimum gap is reduced accordingly. The minimum clearance required can be found in the corresponding table of each different hinge.
2. The minimum gap 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.
3. C distance
C distance refers to the distance between the edge of the door and the edge of the reaming cup hole. The maximum C size available for each hinge varies with different hinge models. The larger the C distance, the smaller the minimum gap.
4. Door coverage distance
The door coverage distance refers to the distance the door covers the side panels.
The gap refers to the distance from the outside of the door to the outside of the cabinet in the case of a full cover; the distance between two doors in the case of a half cover; in the case of an inner door, the gap refers to the distance from the outside of the door to the inside of the cabinet side panel distance.
6. The number of hinges required for each door
The width of the door, the height of the door and the quality of the door material are the determining factors for the number of hinges required for each door. In actual operation, the various factors that appear are different due to different situations. Therefore, the number of hinges listed in the figure above can only be used as a reference. When the situation is unclear, it is recommended to do an experiment. For stability considerations, the distance between the hinges should be as large as possible.
