[wpex more = “Click here to read how patented Sing core has solved the age-old door-warping problem!” less = “Click for less“]The age-old warping problem has been solved!  Building designers, contractors and millworkers as well as homeowners can dance for joy.

Patented Sing Core The revolutionary patented Sing core technology has solved the warping nightmare.  Doors made with Sing panels are true flat (non-warping) and will stay true flat and can be guaranteed true flat for 50 years.  It is like Sing panels have true-flat memory!  The Sing panel core is a honeycomb/torsion box foam grid wherein the wood grain is perpendicular to the skin and held together with our patented formaldehyde-free glue.  So, our patented Sing cores are 90 percent air, which does not move, supported by the strongest structure possible.  As such,  Sing panels are:

High Precision makes true flat Sing cores!

High Precision makes true flat Sing cores!

1.  Dimensionally stable with a high precision Sing core tolerance of +/- .006 inch.  This is laser precision which produces the smoothest and most true-flat panels.

2.  Fully insulated in the protection of our patented Sing grid structure for temperature control and sound-deadening qualities.  Sing cores are 3 to 5 times more insulated than solid wood-based door cores.  Note:  Our patented Sing core structure prevents separation of the foam and the skin which preserves the original strength and insulation value.

Lightweight true flat memory! 3.  Lightweight so that even a 4 inch thick door will weigh only 2 to 3 pounds per square foot. An average wood-core weighs 8 to 10 times more than our patented Sing core.

4.  High strength which has been verified by the University of Washington at above 660 PSI, making our Sing panels pound-for-pound stronger than steel. (You could drive a 12,000-pound forklift with heavy rubber wheels over them without crushing them!)

5.  Water-resistance/waterproof doors made of patented Sing core panels can be completely exposed to the weather without warping. (Click here to see our exterior door gallery.)

Sing core strength! 6.   Eco-friendly and non-toxic structure glue for bonding skins and Sing core. In summary, patented Sing core not only solves the door-warp problem, but also keeps the finished product high precision true flat, lightweight and high strength,  plus provides great insulation and sound reduction and is eco-friendly.

Due to the recent increase in volume of architectural specifications, inquiries and orders for Sing pivot doors, we are asking for your help in building a pivot industry report to better serve the entire channel.

Please feel free to look over the following information and let us know if there is anything else that we could provide to better serve the industry.

Pivot Door Potential

The door industry represents a multi-billion-dollar service that caters to all sorts of clients from moderately-priced to highly customized architectural doors. Currently pivot doors only account for a small fraction of sales because they are high weight, the hardware, installation and maintenance over time is expensive.

If the obstacles of high-price and other obstacles could be overcome, high-end pivot doors could be more affordable and achieve high growth potential amongst homeowners.

Affordable Pivot Door Evolution of Entrance Doors

For thousands of years pivot doors have been the upscale preference of the most exotic high-end large oversize entrance doors relying heavily on the entry door hardware, specifically the pivot hinge, to manage the functionality of the pivot door.

Large pivot doors have been around for centuries ancient stone pivot doors

Ancient Large Pivot Doors Made of Stone

Due to the size and weight of the conventional modern pivot door the heavy duty hinges and pivot door hardware could account for up to half the cost of the pivot door (e.g., a low end pivot door could cost $3,000, half the price will pay for the hardware due to the heavy weight), creating a high price point as well as being expensive to transport, handle and install.

Yet, the most demanding clients desire this elegant outswing exterior door to make an extreme visual impact for the primary access point of their structure (while bringing the outside in and the inside out by way of the architect’s modern design concept) regardless of price to command attention via first impression.

Pivot doors may be the most expensive designer doors but there’s no escaping the luxurious feel that they lend to designs by top architects who help to create the most leading edge structure designs by featuring the best exterior doors.

Since hardware is of huge importance in a pivot door’s design and implementation, there are many options to consider including offset pivot hinge, commercial door hinges, heavy duty door hinges and center pivot door hardware in your pivoting door system.
