Hardware accessories are an indispensable part of modern furniture, and, in most cases, furniture hardware has become one of the standards to measure the quality of furniture, which shows its great importance. But do we know what furniture hardware is? How to choose furniture hardware?
Many people may be able to name a few hardware, but the more in-depth things will be confusing. Today Xiaobian will take you to a deeper understanding of the classification of furniture hardware and how to choose hardware.
1. According to the classification of materials: copper is one of the widely used materials, with good mechanical properties, corrosion resistance and processing performance; stainless steel is durable, the brighter the more it is used. Its strength is good, corrosion resistance is strong, color unchanged; zinc alloy - its strength and anti rust ability is poor, the advantage is easy to make complex patterns of parts; aluminum or aluminum alloy - ordinary aluminum alloy soft and light, material strength is low, but easy to process and form; Plastics have the characteristics of easy processing, stable product size, good surface gloss, easy painting and coloring, and can also carry out secondary processing such as surface spraying metal, electroplating, welding, hot pressing and bonding; ceramics are materials with good rigidity and high hardness, most of which are above 1500hv. High compressive strength, but low tensile strength, poor plasticity and toughness, not easy to oxidize, and good corrosion resistance to acid, alkali and salt
2. According to use classification: furniture hardware can be divided into solid wood furniture hardware, panel furniture hardware, cabinet hardware accessories, wardrobe hardware accessories, etc.
3. According to function classification: furniture hardware can be divided into functional furniture hardware, structural furniture hardware and decorative furniture hardware. Among them, the functional furniture hardware mainly includes the three in one connector, screw, slide rail, hinge and guide wheel; the structural furniture hardware includes the metal structure of glass coffee table and the metal leg of round table; the decorative furniture hardware includes aluminum edge sealing, hardware pendant and hardware handle.
But consumers should be careful when choosing customized furniture, not only be blinded by the gorgeous appearance of furniture. In fact, the service life of furniture is largely determined by hardware accessories, which directly affects the comprehensive quality and use function of customized furniture. Here, I'd like to remind you: be careful of "the outside of gold and jade and the inside". Hardware accessories are the key to purchase customized products!
How to choose furniture hardware accessories
Tip 1: hinge hardware
Hinge hardware mainly includes door hinge, drawer guide rail and cabinet door hinge. In order to open the hinge easily and noiselessly, it is better to choose the hinge with ball bearing in the shaft.
Drawer guide rails are divided into two sections and three sections. When selecting, the brightness of exterior paint and electroplating, the clearance and strength of bearing wheel determine the flexibility and noise of drawer opening and closing. The bearing wheel with wear resistance and uniform rotation should be selected.
Cabinet door hinge is divided into detachable type and non detachable type. In addition to visual inspection and hand feeling, the hinge surface should be smooth and slippery, and attention should be paid to the good reset performance of hinge spring. The hinge can be opened 95 degrees, and both sides of the hinge can be pressed by hand to observe that the supporting spring sheet is not deformed and broken. The very solid one is qualified product.
Tip 2: handle, handle lock and other locks
Handle materials include zinc alloy, copper, aluminum, stainless steel, plastic, logs, ceramics, etc. In order to match with various styles of furniture, the shape and color of handle are colorful. The handle after electroplating and electrostatic spray painting has the function of wear resistance and corrosion resistance. When selecting, it should be able to bear a larger pull force besides being consistent with the decoration style of the room. Generally, the handle should be able to bear a pull force of more than 6kg.
Tip 3: check the seam of veneered furniture
Whether it's veneer, PVC or pre painted paper, we should pay attention to whether the leather is smooth, whether there are bulging, blistering and loose seam. The inspection should be aimed at the light, but not at the light. Particleboard veneer furniture, the landing part must be edge, not edge board will absorb moisture, rise and damage. Generally, the corners of veneered furniture are easy to be tilted up. When selecting, you can pick up the corners by hand. If you pick up, it means that there is a problem with glue.
A person in the industry said: "the materials used for hardware of sofa upholstered furniture are very important. The unqualified materials are reflected in the cracking of hardware, poor bearing capacity, serious paint and color loss, which are related to the service life of furniture. Consumers should observe carefully and ask businesses to produce test reports to ensure the qualified performance of products. "
