Today, most kitchen interior design projects involve the use of wall cabinets. They may have a different appearance, overall dimensions, method of suspension and positioning (front or angular), but a requirement remains common to all options: suspended furniture must be easy to access. This requirement is especially important for housewives.
Many women, especially those who are permanently or temporarily unemployed, spend a significant amount of time in the kitchen and convenient access to food, utensils and other nonsense in the kitchen.
The main factor that characterizes the convenience of access to a wall-mounted kitchen cabinet is the height of its suspension. It is mainly determined by two parameters:
the height of the kitchen utensils;
the growth of the subject (usually the landlady) who must have constant and convenient access to the objects placed inside the container.
Typically, the height of the suspension is taken equal to 500.0 … 600.0 mm above the surface of the table top. According to the ergonomic requirements of some Russian standards, the height of the lower edge of the suspended furniture should be greater than 450.0 mm. Of course, these requirements are not always met. When mounting the accessory on the refrigerator or on the floor covering, a height of 450.0 mm is unlikely to be sustained.
Despite the differences in the design, method of fastening and installation, the main requirement for fitting products – to ensure the reliability of fastening. For many housewives it will be a tragedy when the kitchen cupboard, full of dishes or spices and food, suddenly breaks, transforming the kitchen into a slaughterhouse.
The reliability of the accessory depends not only on the design of the mounting hardware and on the material with which the furniture is made. In many ways, the guarantee of reliability of the suspension is ensured by the correct preparation of the wall surface.
