Full cover (straight bend):

It means that the door panel covers the side panel of the cabinet, and there is a gap between the two, so that the door can be opened smoothly. When the door is closed, the side panels of the cabinet are completely covered, and the side panels cannot be seen.




 Half cover (middle bend):

Typically, it is used for two doors sharing a side panel. There is a required minimum gap between them. It is generally used for left and right side doors, and half of the side panels are seen when the door is closed. The coverage distance of each door is correspondingly reduced, requiring the use of hinges with bent arms.




Built-in (big bend):

Large bends are also called recessed, or uncovered, side panels that are visible when the door is closed. In this case, the door is inside the cabinet, next to the cabinet side panel. It also needs a gap so that the door can open smoothly. Requires a hydraulic cabinet hinge with a very curved arm.
