With the expanding furniture industry in our country, there is a continuous increase and development in furniture hardware. Furniture designers are constantly exploring new shapes, styles, and materials, and in doing so, they have to carefully consider how to effectively incorporate hardware into their designs. In this article, we will further explore different types of furniture hinges commonly used in cabinet furniture.

One of the most commonly used types of hinges is the concealed hinge. These hinges are widely used in panel furniture and are responsible for connecting the door panels and side panels of cabinets, as well as the door panels and top and bottom panels. When choosing concealed hinges, it is important to consider the combination of the door panel and side panel. If it is an inner door type combination, a large curved type concealed hinge is recommended. On the other hand, for outer door type combinations, a straight concealed hinge should be used. The ideal angle after closing should be around 85° to 86°. It is also worth noting that by selecting the distance between the screw holes in a reasonable manner, the material used in the inner frame of the door panel can be reduced without compromising the connection's strength. Moreover, if more than two concealed hinges are installed on a door, a concealed hinge with self-locking function can be used on the upper part, while the lower part can be equipped with a general concealed hinge, eliminating the need for a self-locking function.

Another commonly used hinge is the angle hinge, which is more suitable for outer doors. The angle shape of this hinge allows it to touch the sideboard flatly with two sides, offering vertical and horizontal screw holes for easy installation. Particle board and medium density fiberboard are ideal base materials for sideboards when using angle hinges. It is generally recommended not to embed the sideboard at the corner during assembly; instead, the other movable part should be embedded with the door panel. Angle hinges are capable of bearing substantial weight and will not easily loosen with long-term use.

For outer doors, special door hinges provide a more appropriate solution. During assembly, the size of the hinge and thickness of the iron should be chiseled on the side panel and door panel for a clean and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

When it comes to inner doors, casing door hinges prove to be more reasonable. These hinges can be assembled on the left and right door panels, as well as the middle panel in parallel with the other two. To install casing door hinges, a sleeve hole should be drilled on the top, slightly smaller than the sleeve, and then the bushing should be knocked in, ensuring it protrudes slightly from the side. The cutout at the upper end of the door should have the same thickness as the door hinge, allowing for the insertion of the hinge. The washer part should be higher than the door end, and the screws should be tightened for a secure fit. This type of hinge allows for flexible opening and closing of the door, while remaining hidden from view when closed.

In contrast, door hinges are more suitable for inner doors when used in conjunction with casing door hinges. These hinges are typically assembled at the lower end of the left and right door panels and come in left and right hinge rod options. Similar to casing door hinges, a round hole should be drilled on the bottom plate, and the circular plate should be inserted and secured with screws. The lower end of the door panel should be chiseled to the same thickness as the rod, allowing for the insertion of the rod. The lower protruding washer of the rod should be higher than the lower end of the door, with screws properly tightened. Door hinges provide flexible movement and are hidden from view when the door is closed.

For glass doors, there are two types of hinges commonly used. The first is the glass door head school hinge, which is suitable for inner doors and is often gram-plated for a decorative finish. The installation process involves drilling a casing hole, then inserting the positioning shaft of the rotary roll into the casing, followed by placing it on the glass door. A plastic sheet is used to fill in gaps, and screws are tightened for a secure fit. Generally, only one piece of this hinge should be installed on the top and bottom of the glass door. The second type is the glass hinge, primarily used for opening and closing external doors. These hinges come in different shapes such as square, rectangular, round stainless steel, or plastic semicircular. Plexiglass doors should be cut and drilled to match the shape of the hinge, and the hinge seat should be screwed onto the side panel before inserting it into the plexiglass door and tightening the screws. Like other hinges, glass hinges also come in both inner door type and self-locking function options.

The selection of various hinges for cabinet furniture depends on the product requirements, door panel weight, length, and base material type. Each hinge serves a specific purpose and contributes to the overall functionality and aesthetic appeal of the furniture.
