It is a perfect combination of practicality and beauty. Therefore, sliding sliding sliding doors have also become one of the most commonly used items in home decoration.  Let the family tutor the consumer to choose the sliding door's skill and the matters needing attention.

A look: profiles

There are two kinds of profiles for sliding doors in the market: aluminum magnesium alloy and recycled aluminum.  The profile of high-quality sliding door is made of aluminum, strontium, copper, magnesium, manganese and other alloys, which has great advantages in toughness, and the thickness can reach more than 1mm, while the profile of lower quality is recycled aluminum, which reduces the toughness and service life.  Most aluminum-magnesium alloy profiles use primary colors without coating, while some merchants often use the surface coloring method of recycled aluminum profiles in order to shoddy, so consumers should let merchants show the section of product profiles to understand the real material when purchasing.

Second look: pulley

Sliding doors are divided into upper and lower groups of pulleys. The upper pulley plays a guiding role. Because it is installed in the upper rail, consumers often do not pay attention to it when purchasing. A good upper pulley has a relatively complicated structure. Not only is there a bearing in it, but also an aluminum block fixes the two pulleys, making it slide stably in a directional direction, with almost no noise.  Consumers should not mistake the sliding door for the lighter when sliding. In fact, high-quality sliding doors should have a certain weight when sliding, smooth and without vibration.

Third look: orbit

The rationality of the ground rail design directly affects the comfort level and service life of the product. Consumers should choose a style that feels good with their feet and is conducive to cleanliness and hygiene. At the same time, the height of the ground rail should not exceed 5mm for the safety of the elderly and children at home.

Fourth, place of origin

There are three sources of sliding doors in the market: domestic, domestic OEM and foreign import. Domestic hardware, profiles and other raw materials are produced and assembled in China, and the price is generally below 450 yuan/m2.  While domestic branding refers to the right to use a brand trademark purchased from abroad, most of the hardware and profiles of the products are produced and assembled in China at a price of 450 to 1000 yuan per square meter.  Imported brands, hardware and profiles are imported with original equipment, and the quality of products is relatively high, with the price generally ranging from 1,000 yuan to 3,500 yuan per square meter.  Consumers can choose according to their own needs, but because some brands in the market charge false prices under the banner of import, when purchasing imported brands, they should closely observe the cross-section and small samples of the samples and inquire about the packaging and website of the manufacturer of origin.
