Door Hinges

Door Hinges

 

Used for furniture doors They are made of two parts: One part is the hinge cup and the arm, the other part is the mounting plate. Also called "cup hinge", or "Euro hinge", as they were developed in Europe and use metric installation standards. Most such concealed hinges offer the advantage of full in situ adjustability for standoff distance from the cabinet face as well as pitch and roll by means of two screws on each hinge. Some hinges will let the door open just beyond 90°, but others offering a much greater degree of opening are available. For example, a 270° hinge will allow the door to swing back against the cabinet side. (It bears noting, though, that this type of hinge will work only on a frameless cabinet with full overlay doors).

Cup size:

We have two popular sizes 26mm and 35mm. How to check the size shows the picture below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Mounting Plate:

Soft-close hinge: A hinge that incorporates a mechanism that activates when the door is within a few inches of the shut position and brings it gently closed.

 

Full overlay: A full-overlay door covers all or nearly all of the front edge of the cabinet. This overlay type typically is used for doors at the ends of a cabinet.

Half overlay: This overlay type is commonly used in the middle of a run of cabinets where the doors share a single partition wall. This hinge will allow the door to cover half of the partition wall (or approximately 3/8").

Inset (Flush): As on face-frame cabinets, inset door on frameless cabinets fit within the cabinet opening and sit flush with the front edges of the cabinet.

 

My existing doors seem to have large screw holes, why is this?

Big manufacturers automate everything, and the doors are pre bored for hinges. The industries invented a “euro screw” which is a nylon threaded screw that presses into a pre bored hole. This eliminates the need to hand screw on the hinges. The good thing here is that there is a conventional screw included for later removal. 

How do I know how far my door opens?

Most hinges have three opening angles 100 degrees, 125 degrees, and 165. Here is an easy way to judge. If the door opens perpendicular then it is a 100 degrees, if it goes a little past perpendicular then it is 125 degrees, and if it opens all the way or almost it is 165 degrees.

 

How do I adjust  hinges?

 

HEIGHT ADJUSTMENT

This adjustment involves two screws, one to the top and one to the bottom of the clip. Loosen the screws slightly and then lift or lower the door until it is in the position you want. Re-tighten the screws to secure the door.

 

 

DEPTH ADJUSTMENT

Use this screw to adjust how far out or in the doors are in comparison to your cabinet and to the other cabinet doors and drawers surrounding it. Loosen the screw and manually push or pull the door to adjust it. Re-tighten the screw when the door is in the position you want.

 

 

SIDE TO SIDE ADJUSTMENT

Using a screwdriver, turn the adjustment screw clockwise and counter clockwise to move the door--the direction of turn and it's effect is dependent on which the side of the door the hinge is attached. On a door with a RIGHT SIDE HINGE: Turn the screw CLOCKWISE to move the door to the RIGHT Side to side adjustment Turn the screw COUNTERCLOCKWISE to move the door to the LEFT On a door with a LEFT SIDE HINGE: Turn the screw CLOCKWISE to move the door to the LEFT Turn the screw COUNTERCLOCKWISE to move the door to the RIGHT
