Analyze the installation tips of door and window hardware

Door and window hardware determines the service life of doors and windows to a certain extent. In addition to selecting high-quality hardware accessories, we also need to correctly install these hardware accessories.

Installation skills of door and window hardware

1. Installation of handle

The installation of the handle should conform to ergonomics, and should be installed at a suitable height for easy use. When installing doors and windows in the home, the handle of the door or window should be the same as the handle of the same kind of doors and windows in the home, and the same color and height should be kept, so as to avoid feeling awkward when using, which is conducive to the overall beauty of the living environment. The length of all screws shall match the thickness of the door body and window. If they do not match, they will break easily if they are too long and loose easily if they are too short. When using the electric drill to drill holes, select a suitable drill bit, because the hole diameter of the drill hole should be consistent with the diameter of the screw. Excessive drilling will cause the screw to fail to bite, and too small drilling will damage the door body when screwing in the screw.

2. Installation of door hinge

Generally, only two hinges with a length of 100mm are required for the light and thin door. If it is a solid door or a concave and convex door, three hinges or two hinges with a length of 125mm must be installed.

3. Installation of locks

According to people's daily use habits, the door lock should be installed in a suitable position. Generally, after installation, the door lock handle should be 90-100cm from the ground.

During installation, the lock body shall be installed first, so that the latch plate is flush with the door edge, then the door shall be closed, the position of the latch plate shall be fixed, and then the latch plate shall be installed, and ensure that the latch plate is flush with the door pocket edge.

Material selection of hardware

Hardware accessories play an important role in the whole set of doors and windows, which directly determines the comprehensive quality of doors and windows, and has a great impact on the performance and service life of doors and windows. Common door and window hardware materials include aluminum alloy, stainless steel, zinc alloy, etc

(Stainless steel hinge)

When selecting hardware made of stainless steel, 304 stainless steel is usually selected, which has high strength and is more wear-resistant. Don't choose other brands of stainless steel because of saving decoration costs. Other brands may not be able to bear the heavy responsibility of door and window hardware. It is easy to rust after long-time friction, and even break after a long time. In addition to 304 stainless steel, we should also choose products with a single rod thickness of 2.5mm, which will be more reliable and durable.

aluminium alloy:

Generally, 6063 aluminum alloy is selected in the door and window fittings, because of its good processing performance, good weldability, extrudability and electroplating. It also has good corrosion resistance and toughness. It is easy to polish and paint the film, and has good anodizing effect. Its strength makes the parts made durable.

When selecting zinc alloy products, it is necessary to pay attention to whether the product uses low-quality materials, because the low-quality materials contain many impurities, and many small pores are produced during the die casting process of the product, which is easy to cause problems if it is used for a long time. Hardware accessories are basically subject to surface treatment for beauty, so it is difficult to see whether low-quality materials are used from the appearance of the product. When selecting, we should confirm with the seller whether the new national standard Z3 raw materials are used. We can also see whether there are cracks or pores in the interior of the product where no surface treatment has been carried out, and try to select high-quality brand manufacturers.
