What to pay attention to when buying hardware fittings

1、Appearance: good hardware fittings, flat and smooth in appearance, easy to switch when folded by hand, no abnormal noise.

2、Weight: Usually, the heavier the weight of the same type of product, the better the quality.

3、Brand: When buying hardware accessories, it is best to buy products from manufacturers with a long history of use and a high reputation. Consideration should also be given to adjusting the colour and texture of furniture and hardware fittings (e.g. handrails). Handles on kitchen furniture should not be made of solid wood to prevent warping in wet environments.

4. When it comes to brands, it is best for owners to go to specialised or branded shops for hardware. Most of the really high quality and well-known hardware brands are concentrated in building materials and branded specialty shops, while most non-branded products do not compare to genuine brands in terms of workmanship, materials and durability.

5. In terms of materials, the common hardware materials used are steel, stainless steel, iron and aluminium. Good hardware has a high degree of purity and superb craftsmanship. Poor quality products try to choose cheaper materials and have a relatively crude production process.

6. Pay attention to the thickness of the hardware. In general, the thicker and heavier the hardware, the better the quality. Many inferior products lack thickness to reduce production costs, which greatly affects the effectiveness and longevity of the product.
