If you are planning to perform maintenance on your old furniture or you are planning to design and build from scratch that dream furniture (or have others do it for you), taking care of every detail is essential to achieve the result you are looking for.
Sometimes we take for granted that the hinges allow the correct functioning of the furniture that uses them. Opening and closing doors is such an everyday action that, if it is difficult, it generates great frustration.

We are now going to review some basic elements to choose correctly this type of hardware. This way you will be able to better appreciate why the hinges we manufacture at Emuca make such a difference.
What is a hinge and how does it work?
In case you are wondering, the hinge is a very simple, but very useful mechanism. It consists of two parts joined by a pivot axis: being generally and traditionally made of metallic materials, although nowadays it is also possible to find them made of some polymers.
In principle, one of the parts is fixed to the furniture and the other to the leaf or face that will act as a door, thus allowing the effect of opening and closing.
Importance of a good hinge
The characteristic wear of this type of friction mechanisms is an element to take into account, especially in that furniture of daily use, such as those found in kitchens and bathrooms. In addition to the deterioration represented by oxidation (in hinges that are not plastic), the effects of abrasive products and the accumulation of dirt on the shaft.
The aforementioned factors affect the proper functioning of all types of hinges. They are more intense in those of dubious manufacture or those that simply do not comply with the adequate resistance.
Therefore, it becomes almost essential to use certified quality hardware. This way, you will be able to avoid the inconveniences you will see below.
How do hinges have a negative influence on furniture?
At this point you can imagine what happens when a hinge does not meet expectations. Here are some of the common problems of hinges with poor quality or advanced deterioration:
- Doors that fall under their own weight.
- Squeaking and annoying sounds when opening or closing.
- Difficulty or resistance when turning.
