French Door Technology
Sing French door panels are a new technology which consists of our patented Sing core sandwiched with two skins and a solid wood frame. Compare our panels with the conventional stile and rail door method made up of dozens of loose components fitted together.
With Sing French door panels you get:
- Stronger corners and joints, especially between the glass and the wood frame;
- Any design you can imagine by adding molding and trim;
- Any size width and length or shape;
- Complimentary lite opening cutouts per your design; and,
- More affordable because they need less labor to build than stile and rail doors.
The Sing Core Difference
Due to the unique advantages of our patented Sing core, which is the heart of our French door panels, Sing panel French doors are in demand. Sing cores are imbued with qualities that are far superior when compared to other traditional or commercially-available French door panels. Our patented new door technology incorporates our space-age core that is extremely lightweight, yet pound-for-pound stronger than steel at a fraction of the cost.
LightweightSing Core French Doors are much more lightweight than French Doors manufactured by other door companies due to the unique properties of the patented Sing Core used in the design of these doors.
In terms of strength, Sing Core is pound-for-pound stronger than steel and have compression strength rated at 660 PSI. Our solid Sing core door panels are designed to be warp-free; twist and rot resistant; can be extremely weather-tight; and are much stronger than traditional stile and rail configurations that breakdown and weaken overtime, or fail at the joints under extreme conditions.
French doors made with Sing panels are pre-insulated and allow sunlight in for natural solar advantages and energy efficiency. They also allow you to enjoy enhanced peace and quiet between varying environments due to the superior sound-deadening qualities of Sing Core French Doors.
French doors made with Sing panels are manufactured using natural wood and recycled foam components, and our patented bonding materials (adhesives) are formaldehyde-free. The construction process uses less energy, manpower and produces little or no waste. Due to Sing panel lightweight properties shipping, transportation and installation costs are reduced.
Though used in high-end designs, French doors made with Sing panels are competitively priced, and even though they are handcrafted in the USA, can still compete with inexpensive imports.
