Small knowledge of door hinge installation
1. Minimum clearance
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 clearance is reduced accordingly. The required minimum clearance can be found in the correspondence table for each different hinge.
2. Minimum clearance of half door
When two doors share a side panel, the total clearance required shall be twice the minimum clearance so that both doors can be opened simultaneously.
3. C distance
C distance refers to the distance between the edge of the door and the edge of the hinge cup hole. The maximum C-dimension available for each hinge varies by hinge model. The larger the C distance, the smaller the minimum clearance.
4. Door coverage distance
Door Coverage Distance refers to the distance that the door covers the side panel.
Gap refers to the distance from the outside of the door to the outside of the cabinet in the case of a full cover; in the case of a half cover, the distance between two doors; 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. 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 in the number of hinges required per door. In practice, the various factors that arise vary from situation to situation. Therefore, the number of hinges listed in the figure below can only be used as a reference. When the situation is unclear, a test is recommended. For stability reasons, the distance between the hinges should be as large as possible.
