There will be no force added to the load on the hinges besides from the weight of the person leaning back on them. With 2 hinges, they will (apparently) take about 90lbs of force 10” from the hinge. This is probably borderline sufficient. Not sure what the typical force exerted on a backrest is. If upgraded to the metal ones, it’d be rated at around 250lbs of force at 10” out. That is plenty strong.
