How to find quality hinges?
You do not buy doors every day - and you for sure do not want to replace them expensively in five years. We test our hinges on 200,000 openings and closings - this corresponds to 25 years of use. However, when testing, most of our components withstood even twice as much.
At SAPELI, we reinforce the door frame with additional rails and due to this our hinges have unique durability and resistance. Anchoring in poor material means that the door slightly droops or even tears off.
Teflon reduces friction, minimizes wear and tear and ensures that black dust will not be falling down from worn metal
One drop of special oil applied to SAPELI hinges once a year is sufficient. Due to the adjustment in 3 directions you will easily secure 100% fitting - the door will fit accurately and tightly.
This problem does not arise with stainless-steel handles, but rather with handles cast from brass or Zamac, surface treated in various colours and subsequently lacquered. Over time, the surface lacquer becomes damaged, for example, by being scratched by rings, and the handle starts to oxidise under the lacquer - it appears two-coloured. This is especially typical for handles with a bright brass surface finish - and these we definitely do not recommend.
Yes, various types of hardware with varying levels of security exist.
