Since it is not facing mass consumers, the requirements for aesthetics are not so high. But from the structural and performance aspects will be very strict. We know that the doors of industrial equipment are generally heavy, so it requires hinges to have a very structural and durable structure. Must meet the requirements of the equipment load-bearing performance.

In other words, they are more focused on structural performance, while furniture hinges are more focused on appearance. Of course, this is only relative, not absolute.

This is also a relatively special category of hinges, which are specifically used on the doors of freezers, refrigerated containers, and other equipment. It generally requires low-temperature resistance, corrosion resistance, and high load-bearing. Because the freezer door is generally heavy. So the size of these hinges is also generally larger.
