Sing Solution Considerations

What should you consider when seeking out the Sing solution?

1. Dimensions Affect Price

 

Sing Core can build anything that can be panelized, from large pivot doors to hangar doors and panelized structures such as warehouses or even Sing Log Homes. Very large panels or walls can reach enormous proportions and can be made modular for near seamless assembly on site. Other factors which affect the overall price of your project will be,

2. Importance of Surface Material

 

The skin material used on your panel’s exterior greatly affects how the substructure is built. Basically, the greater the tendency for the exterior surface material to move, the more of Sing’s True Flat engineering is required to create a hybrid substrate which will counteract the panel’s tendency to warp, bend, twist, or otherwise create a challenge in the field over time.

3. Sing Core Inside

The core of the panel in question can come in many different variations besides the patented and fully insulated, reinforced vertical grain torsion box core to match the high precision performance expectations of your project. Many considerations are made to determine the size of the patented structure grids as well as integration of patent-pending counter-warp materials to achieve desired results.

4. Thickness

Thickness of your panel and each of its features affects everything. For instance, it is much easier to keep a panel straight and true the higher the percentage of patented Sing Core is inside your panel proportionally. Even if your surface material is natural wood, your client might desire 3/8” thick material, when using 1/8” material is far more effective, and the difference is not noticeable on the end product.

All of these things play a part in the design and engineering of your panel in terms of

A. WEIGHT

The overall weight of your custom panel(s) is determined by the sum of all the components which are necessary to create a one-of-a-kind solution which meets your required specifications. The greater the amount of Sing Core inside your panel, the less it will weigh and the stronger it will be.

B. STRENGTH

No other substrate in the world is more lightweight or high-strength than inventor Peter Sing’s Sing Core, which provides for a solid composite core based on Sing’s patented insulated and reinforced torsion box structure, which is stronger than steel pound for pound (660+ PSI). By doubling the among of patented Sing Core, you multiply the strength of the panel four times.

C. WARP-FREE

Besides being Eco-friendly and made in the USA, patented Sing Core is the only substrate which can guarantee your panel will not warp, bend, twist, or otherwise fail. In fact, this revolutionary building material enables the best door companies in the world to build large doors of any size which can be guaranteed warp-free for 50 years (a first in the industry).

BUDGET CONSIDERATIONS

Sing solutions for problems and challenging projects can be costly, but they may also be extremely affordable depending on your performance expectations.

If you are on a budget and flexible about some of the elements of your design, there is a good chance that Sing’s True Flat Team may be able to reengineer a solution for you that will both meet your budget and your performance expectations.

About Sing Core

SingCore panels are engineered with a lightweight, insulated, vertical grain tension box core. Then two skins are adhered to create a panel that’s lighter, stronger, and warp-resistant. Because the strength off our core doesn’t rely on wood, which is a naturally warping material, SingCore panels have a 50 year warp-free guarantee; the only one offered in the industry.

Additionally, SingCore panels are completely customizable, making them perfect for any project.

 

Dimensions

  • Length and Height are based upon your specifications to fit your project’s needs. We can also custom manufacture your panel’s grade, core grid size, skin type, edging, trimming, internal blocking, and thickness. However, the minimum thickness is 3/4″. There is no maximum thickness!

Edging

  • You can order Sing panels with open or closed edges. Ordering your Sing panels with open edges is useful if you intend to work with the panel post-manufacturing. If you prefer closed edges, the skin material will be pressed and glued over a solid wood frame. Unless specified otherwise, edging is 1.25″ solid birch.

Skin Options

  • We provide many different skin options to fit any of your construction needs. This includes Birch, MDF, Mahogany, Fir, Cedar, and even metals like Galvanized Steel. See images of example door skins on our Galleries page.

Trimming

  • Unless otherwise specified, all of our panels are shipped untrimmed. If you need a clean, finished panel on arrival, simply specify in your order. Open edged panels will always include trimmed edges.


Other Specifications: Internal Blocking and Embedded Chases

Many custom projects require specific hardware to be installed in our panels post-production. Therefore, we offer additional wood blocking anywhere within the panel. However, increased amounts of internal wood blocking will increase the weight and the likelihood of warping since wood tends to warp over time.

Custom Sing Panels can be manufactured to your architectural specifications, which may include special chases for plumbers to route hot and cold water feeds or electricians to run electrical wiring through. Since every Sing panel is custom manufactured, we can have your wire chase or plumbing pre-installed within your panels at any specified location.

For any special customization you need for your project, please provide us with detailed specifications and drawings so we can be sure to give you the product that you need!
