We want to clear up the main technical doubts that may arise regarding the assembly of our products and the necessary steps required to assemble them.

Hinges, stays and latches

Depending on the overlap you can choose one of these hinges:

Full overlay hinge: If you want to overlap practically the full side of the unit.
Half overlay hinge: If you want to overlap half the side of the unit.
Insert hinge: If you want the door to be inlaid hand therefore for the side of the unit to be seen.

What type of concealed hinge do I need to choose depending on the door overlap that I want to achieve?

Once you have chosen the type of hinge that you are going to use (straight, elbow or super elbow) you will have a formula for calculating the base or plates. This formula will the type B = 14 + D - O, where the variables are:
B = Height of the base or plates.
D = Drill distance from the hinge.
S = Door overlap with the side.

For example: We have a door with a thickness of 22mm, an overlap with a side of 15 mm (S) and a distance from the drill of 3 mm (D), we also know that the thickness of the unit board is 16 mm.
As the overlap is large, we will use the straight hinge. The formula of the straight hinge is B = 14 + D - O. We know the values D = 3 and S = 15. Replacing in the formula: B = 14 + 3 - 15 = 17 - 15 = 2.
So B = 2, with the straight hinge and the base is 2mm, the problem is solved.

How can I calculate the base or ideal plates for a concealed hinge?

The quantity of hinges needs for each door will depend on the width and height of the door, as well as the material that it is manufactured out of. In fact, it can vary in some specific cases.

The adjoined diagram can be used as a reference. where L is the distance between the hinges.

How can I know the number of hinges needed for a door?

The supplements or bases that are used along with the hinges have two holes for fastening to the furniture and a third hole for increasing the resistance of the hinge/supplement joint. It is especially designed for facilities that require more resistance such as on doors with pistons. 

In the following table you can see the length of the hinge arms on the side of the unit:
