How to choose the right shower door hinges？
Shower doors are supported by hinges that allow the door to be opened and closed. There are different types of shower hinges. So how should we choose a high-quality shower door hinge?
1. MaterialThe material of the shower hinge must be strong and durable. Choose a material that won't rust or corrode in wet environments. Solid Brass and 304/316 Stainless steel are popular choices for glass door hinges because it is both aesthetically pleasing and resistant to damage.
2. Finishes and colorsChrome is still popular, it’s a timeless, fashion-conscious and attractive choice. The chrome-plated sheen makes it look particularly nice. At the same time, it is suitable for almost any style of bathroom. Shower hinges are available in a variety of colors and finishes. Matte black, silver, gold, brushed nickel, and white are some of the many options to choose from.
3. CoatingHow to identify the coating: The electroplating layer of the high-quality shower room glass door hinge is bright, with good bonding force, compact structure, uniform coating, and crisp color surface. The poor-quality door hinge electroplating layer uses cheap brighteners, which have loose structures, poor bonding, and dull and whitish surfaces. In addition, the direct chrome plating on the zinc alloy makes it easy to rust, wear, blister, and peel off in a short period of time. The thickness of the coating is thin, and there are many scratches and burrs on the surface of the coating.
4. Hinge stylesGlass shower door hinges come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles. There have the following types of shower hinges.
●Glass to Glass Hinges
●Wall to Glass Hinges
●Wall Mount Glass Hinges
●Adjustable Glass Hinges
●Heavy Duty Glass Hinges
The choice of hinge style is entirely a matter of your style preference. You can choose the styles that you like and with the right functions.
Shower door hinges are essential hardware accessories for shower rooms. We should pay attention to their quality when choosing, so as not to break down after a short period of use, which will affect our consumption experience.
